Steubenville Fall Maternity Session | Emily + Alex

Springtime and motherhood seem to just go together.  Maybe it’s the fact that Mother’s Day falls during this season or maybe it’s because the world is bursting with new life:  delicate blossoms dot the landscape and the bare trees become green with new leaves. Many animals give birth to sweet babies in the spring and […]

When Julie reached out to me about her scheduling her fall family photos, she mentioned that they were expecting a new baby in February!! SO EXCITING! I photographed this family last year and boy, that day was COLD! Her kids were such troopers and we had a great time last year!! Thankfully this year it was incredibly warm, sunny and the fall foliage at Settlers Cabin Park in Pittsburgh, PA was stunning!!

I met Annie just about a year ago, she was the maid of honor for DALTON’S WEDDING. I loved getting to know her throughout the wedding day so when she told me she was expecting a little baby boy and asked me to do her maternity photos, I was like “YESSS!!!!” For her session we met at Racoon Creek State Park outside of Pittsburgh, PA and we found some amazing locations along the lake

I met Caitlin at a mom’s night about a year ago. She’s got a magnetic personality and I loved getting to know her. So I was really excited when she messaged me about doing a family session with her husband’s family. She suggested we do the session at Friendship Park near Smithfield, Ohio. I had never been there before but I’m always looking for new and different locations for sessions.

When we found out we were pregnant again, I knew I wanted maternity photos taken this time around. I had visions of John kissing my belly and precious interactions between the three of us.
