This is Lindsey. She and her husband are expecting their first child! Lindsey and her husband Adam are dear friends of ours from college, and when I found out about their big news I knew I wanted to take some photos for them to remember this very special time.

We were able to spend the weekend together last week while we were spending some time back in the States. While we were on our little mini vacay we did a lifestyle photo session to showcase Lindsey's growing baby bump as well as the love between her and Adam. Since their wedding, almost 4 years ago, they hadn't had any other photos taken of the two of them. Initially, we were just going to take some photos for Lindsey and Adam to use as a pregnancy announcement, but we decided it would also be the perfect time to showcase their love for each other with a romantic and intimate photo session.

Lindsey and Adam kept the pregnancy a secret until the end of her first trimester because they wanted to hold on to their little secret just the two of them for as long as possible. I love their sense of intimacy and secret excitement. I was hoping to capture some of those little whispers of excitement, awe, and the natural bit of nervousness that comes with expecting a child in these photos.

It's such a major event to go from 2 to 3! I wanted this session to capture the beauty of this transition and transformation of a family. What I love about lifestyle photography is the intimacy and realness of the images. No fancy lights, makeup, styling or poses. Just a window with great light, a bed, two people in love and their precious little baby bump!

Since we had been taking our time getting ready and taking photos, Adam started getting a little hangrgy and demanded pancakes, so we just took the photo session to breakfast!
