I was lucky enough to meet Maria and Andrew two years ago when I photographed their wedding, and when Maria called to inquire about a Downtown Birmington Maternity Session, I was so excited. She wasn't quite sure where she wanted to do the maternity photo session in Metro-Detroit, and within the first few minutes of chatting on the phone, I knew the perfect spot for us to explore.
We did the maternity session in Downtown Birmington, and there is also a park close by as well. On the day of the session, it was insanely cold, and they were so brave to spend some time (without coats!) for the sake of some beautiful photographic artwork that they will treasure for a long time. Maria is due with a sweet baby boy, and they have chosen to name him Matthew. Maria and Andrew are such a fun couple, and have a very playful attitude with each other, so it makes them easy to photograph and catch during natural, loving moments.
Because they are so easy-going and fun, we were cracking jokes and laughing throughout the entire session. It was almost like reconnecting with old friends, rather than previous clients. I cannot wait to meet baby Matthew, and hopefully photograph their little family of three in the future! I love watching couples evolve into families, and being their Metro-Detroit family photographer that captures all the different stages, right alongside them.
Going through this blog really makes me miss the colors that Michigan displays in the fall. The park was alive with colorful beauty; deep dark reds mixing with a hint of golden yellow was the perfect combination for this Downtown Birmington Maternity Session. The downtown atmosphere was perfect as a contrast too, for a mixture of classic and urban- all within the same session!
If you're interested in a Downtown Birmington Maternity Session, I'd love to chat with you!
