Spring Maternity Session at Franklin Park Conservatory

I seriously LOVE this couple! Markie and Drew are two of the nicest, most compassionate people and I think most will agree that it’s an honor to know them. For the past three years, they’ve traveled to Columbus from their home in Utah so Drew can do some seasonal work in Columbus. Because of that, I was able to meet and get to know Markie when she started working at American Eagle during that first summer three years ago.

I was so excited when Markie reached out and asked me to photograph her and Drew to document her pregnancy with their first child! Little Urban is already so loved and he’ll be here in just a couple of months! I met Markie and Drew at the Franklin Park Conservatory a couple of weeks ago on a beautiful sunny day. They even brought their little pup, Roger! Isn’t he the cutest?!

In the past year, I’ve had many opportunities to photograph expecting mamas and I really love documenting this stage in a woman’s life. Pregnant women are so beautiful. So strong. To create life is one of the biggest accomplishments a person can do and I know that Markie and Drew will be fantastic parents!

I am so in love with the photos I took of them and I can’t wait to share them with you 🙂
