Maternity Photographer Vernon Hills IL Jessica

Hi guys! I’m still playing catch-up from all of my fall sessions. I love being a maternity photographer, for SO many reasons! This is a maternity session from back in September. Grayson James, the second baby of parents Brandon and Jessica, was due on September 15th of 2015. Jessica and Brandon have a busy and active lifestyle, and can’t wait to expand their adventures together with a new member of the family. Jessica is a personal trainer at Just About You Fitness and we met because our daughters did gymnastics together. Can you tell by how amazing she looked at the end of her pregnancy?! I was super excited to shoot their maternity session, especially since I had a personal relationship with Jessica and Brandon. They are from Vernon Hills, IL but the maternity session took place in Lake Zurich, IL.

Jessica had a smooth pregnancy with very few bumps in the road. She only had some heartburn that was a bit uncomfortable because of it’s frequency, but that paled in comparison to the joy of a new baby boy! Jessica was glowing in all of her pictures from her maternity session. Her joy for the little boy growing inside of her was contagious and I couldn’t stop smiling from behind my camera lense! Jessica had a few outfit changes for her session, and I absolutely have to mention how gorgeous her gowns were! They were from Design by C Boutique most popularly known on Etsy! They design beautiful flowy maternity gowns, for these exact maternity photography sessions. My favorite gown was the bright red; the gem tones perfectly complimented the rich colors of the forest preserve that we were in.  

As a maternity photographer, I am so lucky to be able to capture the special moments between and expecting mother and her family. Each picture I took shows so much love and excitement between Jessica and Brandon as their family grows. Sometimes, when there is a second child on the way, the older one has a hard time with it. Jessica and Brandon’s sweet little girl is nothing but excited though! You can see how happy she is to meet Grayson when she hugs onto her mom’s stomach like she’ll never let go!
