Goddess of the Golden Hour
See that gorgeous pregnant lady? Her name is Leslie and she and I have known each other for basically our entire lives. We had bad haircuts together, bad fashion choices and even worse boyfriend choices (or was that just me?) We were inseparable growing up, living houses away from one another we were together practically everyday. Getting into trouble and pretending to be sisters.
Needless to say I love this gal and I wanted to make sure to capture her pregnancy in all its insanely beautiful glory. Since Leslie lives in Minneapolis we planned the photoshoot for one of my trips up. She and her husband Brian live walking distance to a beautiful marsh by the railroad tracks. We used this spot as our beautiful backdrop for the evening photoshoot. Leslie had said she only wanted to get one good shot. I think we succeeded.
This photo shoot was special for so many reasons. Obviously I have a very close relationship to the subjects but beyond that you could feel how excited and more importantly connected the two of them were. Let's be honest, being parents is hard and they are in for a wild ride. But I have no doubt these two are going to be a great team. Thank you Leslie and Brian for allowing me to be part of this amazing journey. I simply can't wait to meet your little one!
