Mary and David are expecting their first baby! What makes this maternity session extra special is that I was also the photographer at their wedding six years ago. Since then, they’ve become dear friends and I’m thankful they are in my life! And this maternity shoot is near and dear to my heart because I’m a Chicago-based photographer, and yet, I got to do the whole session on the ocean…at a beach I’ve never been to before! And because of the trust I have with Mary, these words rolled out of my mouth, “Bring your bikini!” and to my surprise, she replied, “It’s already in the car!” LOVE these guys to pieces and these incredible images will remain in my heart and soul FORVER!
Until one becomes a mother, no one can ever tell you what it will feel like to love someone else so deeply and profoundly that you will rejoice when they rejoice, ache when they ache, feel what they feel…even without ever speaking a word. ~ Jennifer Quinn
