Deanna + Randy

A beautiful couple stands in front of the gates of the football field on the University of Minnesota campus during their outdoor maternity session.

When potential clients reach out about maternity sessions, it’s always so much fun when they have unique location ideas. Especially if that location has special meaning…like this one.

These two are huge college fans and they have intertwined their love for their colleges into their love story. First, they did their engagement photos on HER campus (Michigan State) so it was a given that they would involve HIS campus (University of Minnesota) somewhere down the line. Well, their maternity session was the perfect time to do that. And I was so excited to be their photographer!

The moment we met I knew these two were very special people. We instantly hit it off and we chatted the entire time like old friends. I just love when sessions go like this! We opted for two different looks…we started on the casual side while we walked around campus..then we switched to a more formal look for the last part of the session. I just LOVE this red dress on her! Stunning. It was just the right amount of color on this sunny April afternoon. ♥

A couple that is expecting their first baby poses in front of the gopher statute on the University of Minnesota campus in Minneapolis for their outdoor maternity session.

This next one is one of the most special photographs I’ve ever taken. You see that hospital across the river behind them? That’s where their baby was born just a few weeks later. Amazing, right? When they told me that my heart melted. I’m so happy I was able to give them this memory to love forever.
