Our Maternity Shoot

November 10, 2021

Literally can't get over these images from my vendor friend Keeley Abigail Photography. I knew I wanted her not only for her great work but because of the full circle moment! She was the second photographer from our wedding 7 years ago! I know I wanted a barn setting because it's fall and something about the autumn glow would make it great. I found this site of barns all over the state but it got a bit overwhelming so Keeley took point and suggested my FAVE one, the Webb Barn in Old Wethersfield! I have shot here many times and used to live about a mile from it so it really was a no brainer.

We picked a Thursday afternoon and I was 33 weeks along - just big enough and not too uncomfortable. We ended up "crashing" a rehearsal dinner for a wedding but the grounds were big enough we weren't in the way. Got some looks but that's alright by me. The glow of the trees and fall colors were just what I wanted! My mother picked out this teal dress that had me feeling so pretty and then the second outfit choice matched well with Michael.

I also got my makeup done by the amazing LA Page Makeup who is a dear industry friend! It's so nice to have a go to person to make me feel extra special for certain occasions.

Enjoy some of my favorite images!
