Spring Maternity Shoot with Bridget and Alejandro in Algonquin

As a maternity photographer, there’s nothing quite as rewarding as capturing the beautiful journey of expectant parents. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing Bridget and Alejandro, a wonderful couple whose love story I’ve had the honor to document from their civil union at Chicago City Hall . This time, they called me to capture the joy and anticipation of their growing family with a maternity photo shoot in the scenic Algonquin area.

Bridget, wearing a long dark dress, holds her pregnant belly with a serene smile, while Alejandro stands close beside her, looking at her lovingly. The barren tree branches frame the couple, creating a striking contrast against the open sky. The simplicity and elegance of the scene emphasize the couple's intimate connection and the anticipation of their new journey into parenthood.

Our relationship began last year before Christmas when we first met to discuss photographing their civil union. Fast forward to January, I had the privilege of capturing their special day in the heart of Chicago. Now, with spring in full bloom, it was the perfect time to celebrate another milestone in their lives.

The image captures a tender moment, symbolizing their excitement and dreams for their upcoming baby.

One of the highlights of the shoot was incorporating some meaningful props that Bridget and Alejandro brought along. They had ultrasound photos of their baby, a pair of tiny Nike shoes, a T-shirt with “Fun un GOL de Papi” written in green, and a soccer ball. These items added a personal touch to the photos, symbolizing their excitement and dreams for their little one.

The maternity shoot took place on a serene spring afternoon. Bridget looked absolutely stunning in a dark green long dress that perfectly complemented the lush surroundings. Alejandro matched her elegance in a dark green shirt and black pants, creating a cohesive and stylish look. The natural chemistry between them was evident as they moved effortlessly in front of the camera.
