I don’t a lot of maternity sessions, but I love them, and this was my first one in Germany so I was very excited! We ended up doing a couple of mini sessions for Ashley and Joe before their little baby girl arrived since the rain descended on us the first time. I loved both sessions for different reasons and happy to spend some extra time with these two awesome parents to be.
Our first session took place in the gardens of Ludwigsburg Palace. I had never done a shoot there before and the gardens are absolutely beautiful, especially in the middle of the summer. We had a little peak of sunshine for a few minutes before it gave way to the clouds and eventual rain.
Literally right after the photo on the right was taken the rain came in! I’m just happy we made the pitstop at the stone wall before parting ways. Her blue dress against that stone was to die for!
For round 2 we decided to head to Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart on a rather warm day, but Ashley was a trooper only a few weeks from her due date and we were able to get some beautiful photos
I had been wanting to try some silhouettes under the doorway of the palace and I’m so happy with how they turned out! Love the view of the city at the palace, making it one of my favorite places to shoot.
Thank you so much again Ashley and Joe. I hope life with your new precious lady is fantastic!
