“and sometimes you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings” // I love this quote to explain this gorgeous Chicago maternity photography session.
Sometimes as a photographer you meet some clients who you just click with – Tana and Zeb are some of those clients. I first met this couple when they asked if I was available to photograph their intimate wedding that was going to be held in a bookstore…..ummm yes! Their wedding day was so unique and amazing starting with their vows in the aisle of their favorite bookstore and ending at their favorite bar that, unbeknownst to us, was hosting a “Santa” pub crawl – see the awesomeness of their amazing wedding here.
When Tana reached out to me and told me they were expecting and would love a Chicago maternity photography session I was super excited. As the scheduled day of the shoot got closer Zeb called me to tell me that Tana was in the early stages of labor and could I do their shoot the next day? The stars aligned, I was free the following day and met the couple at their apartment for these beautiful photo’s. The couple lives in Hyde Park and we didn’t want Tana to have to travel too far from home so we started at a beautiful park right across the street and ended with some photo’s inside with their two kitties – who look ready to welcome the newest family member (sidenote: we did not pose them in the crib, they jumped on in and I snapped away!)
These two are going to be amazing parents and I’m so excited to capture this special time for them literally right before their little baby boy made his way into the world! Congratulations Tana and Zeb!!! xo – Lisa
