I am so excited about the chance to work with the Todd family! What a pleasure it is to be documenting their family during this season of their lives. Ryan and Dana are thrilled to celebrate their rainbow baby (along with Ryan’s daughters Lilah and Evie). They are relishing each day of pregnancy with their baby girl. This Naperville maternity session was a breeze with such an easygoing family. I think you can see how natural they were in these shots.

I wanted to capture each family member’s unique personality while paying special attention to making their pictures look luxurious and romantic. And of course, I wanted to spotlight Moose, the family’s Goldendoodle (who happened to be a fantastic model in his own right!).

We snapped some family pictures with the girls, and then took a handful of photos of Ryan and Dana together. Can’t you just feel how in love with each other they are?

Finally, we took some pictures of Dana with her bump. That emerald green dress was the perfect color, and the entire family’s wardrobe choices completed each other so nicely, didn’t they? In Naperville, maternity sessions are easy with so many beautiful locations.

Naperville Maternity Sessions are Easy with an Experienced Photographer

One thing I loved about the Todd family was their willingness to let me help pose them. When families lean into my professional experience, I can arrange them and direct them. With my help, we can get the most natural poses that photograph beautifully.

This is especially helpful for families who worry they might look awkward in shots.

Dana also sent along some of her favorite shots she had seen, which allowed us to recreate them for their session. It’s always helpful to have an idea of the style you want for your session, but even if you don’t, I am happy to help guide you (and your family) to capture the best images.

I loved this Naperville maternity session, and am looking forward to meeting baby Todd in a few weeks! Congratulations, Todd Family!
