A beautiful Seattle summer day.   Bellevue Botanical Gardens was the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous couple.  Maternity photography sessions are special and I love capturing these memories for parents.

Michael and Ashlyn were over the moon when talking about their first child.  Ashlyn wore a beautiful dress that was so classy and flowed beautifully over her baby bump.  She was absolutely glowing.

Bellevue Botanical Gardens is one of my favorite places to photograph.  During the spring and summer months, the flowers are in full bloom and there is an abundance of green foliage everywhere.   The gardens are such a beautiful backdrop for my maternity clients and allows enough privacy to capture those special moments between the parents.

Michael was very attentive to Ashlyn throughout the session.  It was evident how much he adored his wife in the way he looked at her.    The Japanese Gardens is my favorite spot but it was closed for renovations.  I was scolded at one point by one of the volunteers for not staying on the path when I found a beautiful area and was capturing the “perfect angle”.   We had a good laugh about it afterwards.  A fun session with these two first time parents.

I look forward to capturing newborn pictures for this couple when their little boy arrives in a few short weeks.  He will be so loved and I imaging he will be one handsome little guy.
