Gordon & Jess | Maternity Portraits | Columbus, Ohio

I loved this session so, so, so, so, soooooooo much. It might have been a combo of my love for these people (and this dog) and this soon-to-arrive little baby, and this location, and the light on this perfect evening. But whatever the recipe…it came out perrrrrfect!

Stella is quite the model. And had no reservations hamming it up for me.


Jess…motherhood completely agrees with you. It’s been hard living right next door to you and watching you gain maybe 7 pounds. When we ALL know I gained 70. You look gorgeous. That one on the right is one of my favorite images everrrrr.

Gordon looks at Jess and you just want to melt…he’s going to be the best dad.


Thanks for letting me document this special time in your lives. The countdown is here!!! We love you guys!! For real. Congrats. xoxooxoxoxoxo
