I knew the second that Cortney and Matt registered for their maternity session that we were going to make some absolutely magical portraits, but it wasn't until the night before that I knew just how perfect they were going to be. Cortney had told me that she was interested in studio portraiture, and sent me her Pinterest board to show me what inspired her. That night, I went to bed thinking of all of the things we were going to do in the studio, but I couldn't help thinking that there was something missing.
Just hours before her session I spoke with her and asked if they were feeling adventurous, and to my delight they said yes! That began our night exploring one of my favorite hidden gems in Barrington.
Cortney, a designer for Timberland, arrived to her session in the most perfectly simple, sweet pale blue wrap dress. Her floral crown was the perfect addition to her outfit.
Can't forget the fur baby- Nyia came along for the fun!
These sequence of photographs is so much fun to look at; this particular design is currently being printed in their Heirloom linen album, a fine art album that will have a gorgeous deep grey "tundra" over to match the depth of shadows in many of their images.
Wanderer skirt in burgundy, available to use in the studio or on location!
Matt, an active member of the military, will be leaving shortly again to return to his duty post. Despite the challenges that being apart during this pregnancy has brought, it was a joy to see how lighthearted and relaxed they were during this shoot. Their Heirloom Album should arrive within the next few days; something for them to share and enjoy even when the other is away.
I love it when we can incorporate a personal heirloom into your sessions. This lunchbox belonged to Matt's grandfather. Love!
Congratulations you two!
