A Holiday Maternity Session at Franklin Park Conservatory

A gorgeous momma in gorgeous dresses surrounded by amazing greenery.. This session was amazing from start to finish! We started inside Franklin Park Conservatory and then braved the cold winter air outside for about 5 minutes right as the sun went down. 

My beautiful friend is carrying two little miracles and we could not be happier for her and her family. She really is glowing.

Lisa- thank you so much for being so amazing and gorgeous! We all cannot wait to meet these babies!

Love, 

Erika

Columbus, Ohio Photographer | Maternity Photography - Kathleen

Kathleen is a very special friend of mine that I met several years ago in the corporate world. I cannot tell you how many times this girl was there for me when I needed her (and a break from my cubicle)! We have come a long way since the day we first met..both getting married, progressing in our careers, and now parenthood!

Throughout the morning, her husband, Kiel, was a total sweetheart to her and was treating her like a princess (like a true gentleman :)) Pregnancy can be physically and emotionally rough.. so I was very happy to see Kathleen get pampered and looking so beautiful!

Can we say.. stunning?!

Maternity sessions are the mom's time to shine, relax, and enjoy the beautiful side of pregnancy! I really love showing moms how beautiful they are through their photos!

It is also so nice to have these last few photos of just the two of you. You may soon look back at these pictures in awe because you did not know just yet how much love was about to come into your lives and change you forever.

Columbus Photographer | Maternity Photography - Rolling with Mother Nature

When Morgan emailed me to book her maternity session, I was so excited! I knew we were going to go to Inniswood Metropark and be surrounded by flowers and nature for the perfect maternity look. Once the day came for the session, mother nature was not on our side and it was cold and windy.. I was disappointed for a moment but then decided to bring mother nature to my studio (along with Morgan and her daughter!) and make a flower crown! 

I had experience making flower arrangements from taking a workshop and doing my wedding flower arrangements at the Flowerman in Columbus! Boy was I glad to have those skills at hand that day.. my creative side plus flower taping and wiring skills helped me to whip up a rose flower crown in about 30 minutes! Just in time for Morgan's session!

Morgan and her daughter were both fantastic to work with! Morgan told me her daughter isn't really a "flowers-in-her-hair" type girl.. She would rather be wearing her Converse Chucks ;) but she really rocked the floral crown!

She looked so adorable and is going to be an awesome big sister!

So excited to meet her little brother.

Morgan's gallery turned out timeless and beautiful. Pregnancy is such an amazing moment in your life.. sometimes it feels like forever when you are carrying that baby, but someday, you just might miss your baby bump! Maternity portraits are the perfect way to capture this special time..

Morgan had her makeup done by the lovely Chinda Chaiaree at Salon Lofts - Worthington

The glow is real. Morgan was stunning. I am so happy I was able to capture these moments for her and her family!
