These two. These two love birds love life and they clearly love life together. Traipsing through fields of tall grass, Liz and Alex laughed, joked, and spoke with joy and anticipation about their expecting daughter. Already referring to him as "Daddy" she explained to me all the reasons why their baby girl would have him wrapped around her tiny finger. Of course she will. Don't all daughters?! I love the way Alex makes Liz smile. This daddy-to-be was so attentive during their session, never letting her walk through the field without a helping hand. Soon enough it will be photos of the three of them walking hand in hand. Eek! I can't wait!!
Liz was going for a more casual look when she chose this fitted red t-shirt dress from my maternity wardrobe. With professional hair and makeup from the talented team at Beauty Bar Boutique, a beautiful floral kimono, and just the right gold accessories this mama-to-be was all her feminine glory! Lets be honest though, the dress is only a beautiful accessory to her infectious smile.
I was lucky enough to capture this sweet moment between the two of them as I started to put down my camera. I love these candid moments of pure love between expecting parents. With most of the attention on the expecting mother and her baby bump, maternity sessions tend to be a "this is really happening" moment for everyone.
One of my absolute favorite images from Liz's session. If you know Liz, you know this is all her. From that big, beautiful grin to the way she's rubbing the side of her belly. Liz is and always has been a care giver, a lover, and a nurturer. She was born to be a mother. I look forward to watching her and Alex grow separately and together as they raise their little girl. Between the two of them baby girl Taylor is bound to be one smart firecracker!
