Rachel & Ken // Maternity Session on the hottest day of the year…

Last year we did a bride and groom redo with Rachel and Ken and then just like that, they are back with a baby! Well, almost a baby. Mostly a full baby.

Unfortunately, we had to do this shoot right in the middle of that insane heatwave that hit Michigan. That is the hottest weather I have ever experienced in Michigan before. Being like 8 months pregnant in it…well… that sounds like torture to me, haha. Ken is in the military and was leaving soon so we didn’t have a choice to postpone so we did what we could to make the best of it and tried to stay indoors as much as possible.

They both are so easy to make laugh so we pretty much spent most of the shooting doing just that. I very much enjoy laughy people. :) I don’t know what else to fill silences with and if you know me at all, you know how I feel about silence. :)

We were able to go outside at the end of the shoot since it cooled down a bit and Rachel was a great sport about that. I knew that when I was starting to get hot, she must have been just burning up! I’m glad she stuck with it though because the shots outside are sooo pretty! That is certainly more my element.

This is one of my favorites! Love the laughing! 
Ooooh other major favorite. I love that it’s a silhouette but not a fully black one. 
I want to make this my new staple shot I do for every maternity client. haha!
AHH!! There’s a baby in there! 

Thanks for sticking it out in the crazy heat! I can’t wait to do this again once Stella gets here :)
