I love maternity sessions and I don’t get a chance to do them often so when Ali asked if I would photograph theirs I jumped at the opportunity! I’ve known Ali and Dave for a long time now. Probably a good eight years – from back in the “good old days” when we spent Saturday evenings in Stillwater and pranked people’s houses with duck decoys ;P
I’ve never spent time with a couple that laughs as much as these two do! Which I love because it allows for some great candid moments. These two are easygoing and complete troopers. Dave even took off his hat for a few of them when I asked 🙂
We spent time in a grassy field, the grasses now brown and dry from the season change, and walked along a winding path back into a long lane of tall pines. This is my favorite photo spot – the Rice Creek North Regional Trail in Shoreview. I’m never surprised when I show up and there’s at least two other photographers in the field with families and a few others back in the pines.
