It really should be illegal to be this beautiful when you’re just a few weeks away from your due date. Autumn was another portfolio-building session, and I have to share the story of her maternity portraits.
I met Autumn and her husband Todd in downtown Rochester a few weeks ago to do an urban-themed maternity session. Todd had been paged by his employer right before the session started, so we were only able to quickly snap a few images with him and Autumn together, then I finished the session with solo portraits of Autumn and her gorgeous belly. Well, later that night, Todd borrowed Autumn’s phone, found my number, and called me, explaining that he wanted to surprise Autumn with a *second* maternity session a few days later, and this time, he’d be there the whole time, just like she wanted. How romantic is that? Of course, I couldn’t say no, so we met up again a few days later at the History Center to complete the session.
The light was beautiful, and Autumn and Todd were amazing. Their little one is already so loved, and Autumn has spent hours and hours preparing her home and heart for their transition to parenthood. I am so excited to see this little family grow, grow, grow!

This is just the beginning of their story … the start of a new life not yet born.
More pictures are coming, and I can’t wait to tell you more of their story!
