Chicago- Hubbard Street Murals - Maternity Session
May 18, 2019 | By: Erin Stefanik Photography
Spring in Chicago. Well, this weekend alone we are having Summer, Spring and Fall weather. So when we did MerryBeth's (MB) maternity session, we lucked out with perfect Spring weather. I've been photographing MB & her family for years, and watching her family grow is simply amazing. Cannot wait to meet & photograph this family of three, Davis John who was just born this week.
Mike & MB are pure naturals in front of the camera. MB is a maternity fashionista. From a perfect fitting dress to show off her adorable baby bump, to the fashionable black hat. Mike, in the creative industry himself, suggested the Hubbard Street Mural Project in the photos. Needless to say we found a perfect Chicago Skyline, adorable animals, that could even be used in the nursery. Making our way back to their home, we stopped at this brick wall, where an amazing reflection from the stop sign, gave me an idea.... I wanted to create a shadow of MB's baby bump. After we got that WOW shot, we made our way back to their home & did a more relax setting of photos. Being pregnant it's wonderful to get all dressed up, since some days it feels like nothing fits anymore as your in your last trimester, but there is also something about when you get home, and put on your comfy clothes. I had asked MB & Mike, what is something you both do when you are home, together? This last image says it all, Mike rubs MB's feet in this position on the couch, daily. THIS! These are the moments you want to cherish & remember.
