Vanessa and Leo | Klehm Arboretum and Botanical Garden | Rockford Maternity Photographer

July 14, 2018

There are a few things I learned during this maternity session. 

1. Always carry bug spray. 

2. Always carry dog treats! 

 

Vanessa, Leo, popcorn, and coffee are preparing to welcome a new baby into their family very soon.  This sweet family and I met at Klehm Arboretum and Botanical Garden in Rockford, Il for their maternity session.  I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to continue photographing their growing family with a newborn session, and then an additional session after that.  Did you know that I offer packages?  

 

Here are a few of my favorites from their session!  I think you'll agree that this baby is going to be beautiful after you see her mom and dad!  Coffee and Popcorn are pretty photogenic, too!
