Each summer, Dorothea Dix Park is home to a beautiful sunflower field that is the perfect backdrop for family photos! There are rows of flowers to explore, the perfect amount of space for a family to have fun while taking photos, and even a cool swingset and hammocks to enjoy afterward.

“This morning we dropped Isaac off for his first day of school EVER, and I’m over here all emotional about it, as mamas will be! We had to take those classic first day of school photos, and CAN YOU EVEN?! I also want to share some new stage of motherhood thoughts & feelings, because well, there are lots of them. I’m using this space to document, process, and share in hopes that you can relate & maybe feel a little more validated in all your own feelings & emotions as a mama with kids in transition.”

Spoiler alert – I didn’t know it at the time, but this was the last session I had with this sweet family as a family of three… Since we took these photos last fall, they have welcomed a baby boy & we’ve done maternity and newborn photos for them as part of the New Life Collection! I’m eager to share those photos with you all too, but it just didn’t feel right to skip over these photos and go straight to their maternity photos. Ada is too cute in these and I’ve got to share!

“You’re 3 months into motherhood… You’re finally settling into life with a baby, finding new rhythms, and hopefully getting to some kind of new normal. Baby is growing! You can hardly recognize her from the newborn photos you had taken just a few months ago. How is it that she already looks so different? With her physical growth & changes comes some personality too – she’s smiling, she’s laughing, she’s playing… oh, what a joy to see her become more interactive! There’s a little person in there!”

“Baby Preston will be making his grand debut any day now, so let’s make sure this sweet family’s maternity photos make it on the blog before then! I helped photograph Ashley & Nick’s wedding reception years ago, and I was thrilled when they thought of me to capture this sweet time of anticipation before welcoming their baby boy. Their 5-year-old daughter Belle was amazing during the session, and I know she’s going to be the best big sister!”

They ordered a gallery image and prints with their order, so they see these photos every day in their entry way, in their living room, on a nightstand… And let me say, they always decorate their home with different kinds of beautiful artwork, but not typically large personal photos of family. After saying they probably wouldn’t get a gallery image, they got a gallery image. AND, her parents now have their first large family photo in their home too! <3
