A Maternity Session | Candid Joy Photography | Rochester, MN Maternity Photographer

If you haven’t noticed already from my website and other blog posts, I absolutely love shooting maternity sessions.  They are full of adoration, anxious excitement, joyous anticipation and lots and lots of love for a little one who has yet to grace the world with his or her presence.  Heather was the epitome of all of these descriptions and more.

She had the most radiant pregnancy glow and looked absolutely stunning at 38 weeks pregnant!  Seriously, I could only wish to have looked this amazing at 38 weeks.  Instead I was water logged and puffier than a threatened puffer fish in the ocean (no joke).

I had been keeping my eye on a patch of yellow wildflowers for a week prior to Heather’s maternity session.  When her session date arrived and the wildflowers were still in full bloom I knew exactly where we would be headed for her session.  Now if only we could have kept those pesky little gnats away from us! Oh well, I’m pretty sure enduring those annoying little things was well worth the final outcome from this beautiful session.
