Maternity Photographer | Palatine IL | A&T

I have a special relationship with Ashley and Tevin and was thrilled to be their chosen maternity photographer! I shot their gender reveal session earlier in their pregnancy, and it was one of the coolest reveals that I’ve seen. Ashley and Tevin wore all white clothing a blindfolded themselves, and only Ashley’s mom knew the gender of the baby. Ashley and Tevin then splattered each other with paint and then took off their blindfolds to see that the paint was pink and purple! They were so surprised and thrilled! You can CLICK HERE to see all of the beautiful pictures.

A little after the gender reveal shoot, I shot Ashley and Tevin’s maternity session. Their maternity session took place in an outdoor setting around dusk. This is one of the best times to shoot because the lighting is so soft and creates an array of beautiful colors that seem to splash over the subjects. Being a maternity photographer or any portrait photographer, means you need to understand lighting! Ashley wore three different outfits, and every one of them showcased her beautiful curves and showed how her pregnancy made her glow!

Ashley has so much personality that showed through her pictures. She is bubbly and sarcastic, and loves anything crafty. She likes to pass her time by doing art, painting and drawing. She also loves to read and to volunteer at church functions. There is no doubt that Ashley and Tevin’s daughter will have a life just as beautiful and special as they have! Ashley is very happy and excited about her pregnancy and cannot wait for the day when her and Tevin can welcome their baby girl into the world. Ashley has had an almost perfect pregnancy; despite back pains and morning nausea and some indigestion, but she said that these things are entirely trivial in comparison to how much the new baby will mean to her and Tevin. During the shoot, Ashley and Tevin shared a story with me that is unique to all expecting parents: the first time they heard her heart beat. Ashley was so happy and excited when she heard the heartbeat that she almost cried. That experience is irreplaceable, but is no comparison to seeing your baby for the first time. Ashley and Tevin have so much to look forward to!
