Based on the winter wonderland that is currently outside my window, it is hard to believe this maternity session was only 8 days ago! The really crazy thing is, I did a quick family session just 3 days ago, and it still looked like fall then as well! The world around us has quickly moved from the reds and golds of fall to the bright white of winter. I’m so glad we did this session in time to capture some beautiful fall colors!
I met this lovely couple at downtown St. Charles, MO for their maternity session. I love it when clients book for both maternity and newborn sessions, as it not only allows me to get to know them a little bit before entering their homes to photograph their newborns, but it’s always so amazing to be able to show the progression from baby belly to newborn!
St. Charles is a great place to photograph sessions, as you get a lot of variety. The location offers amazing texture from the various buildings on Main Street, and then the riverfront is a short walk away, giving an entirely different feel to the images. I admit, my favorite spot at this location is the riverfront! But I do like being able to give a bit of variety to my clients in their galleries as well.
Here are some favorites from our session! I have to admit, my very VERY favorites, are the ones when the sun started to go down, and the golden glow of sunset emphasized with the golden colors of fall reflecting on the river created striking colors all around!
