Outdoor maternity portraits in Minneapolis

October 30, 2017

It’s a huge honor when past wedding couples ask me to photograph them in other phases of life. This sweet couple, Linnea and Ross, got married years ago (they were one of the first weddings I photographed solo!) and when they were pregnant last year they asked me to capture some outdoor maternity portraits in Minneapolis.

You may have seen some of their announcement portraits that we took earlier in the year when they first found out they were pregnant; we had planned a short couple’s session in their food truck to document their life at the time when they were announcing this new adventure!

As their due date got closer, we went to Boom Island Park for some portraits of the two of them (and Linnea’s belly!). We created images that were joyful and emotional, and the sunlit trees and field brought a relaxed and natural feeling to these portraits.

My favorite thing about these images are the expressions that these two have when they look at each other – they are so authentically in love and so clearly ecstatic for their baby to be born.
