The Smiths prepared their cute props so that they could use a photo from their session to announce their pregnancy. It was important to capture all the sweetness fall has to offer for this special maternity session.
We met at the studio to do full makeup and hair (we love when we get to style and shooting sessions for our clients) before we went over to the East River Road in St. Paul behind St. Thomas University. The grove of bright red trees near the bike trail is just stunning in the fall! It’s important with any fall shoot to do some scouting a few days before your photography session since the colors change dramatically so quickly.
We had the pleasure of doing hair and makeup at their wedding, so it was very sweet to be able to circle back and be there for their next very big life event – having their first child.
