Lindsey, Eric and a Baby Bump! South Bend, Indiana Family [to-be] Session

February 16, 2015

“When you love someone all your saved up wishes start coming out.” – Elizabeth Bowen



December of 2013, I photographed Lindsey and Eric’s gorgeous wedding at the Basilica, on Notre Dame Campus, and then their reception at the Double Tree hotel, in down town South Bend [see their December wedding HERE]… and I’m so excited they are gracing the pages of my blog once again!  This time with a special baby bump!!!

While I don’t have my own children, and I was never the type of woman who would say things like “I can’t wait to get married and start a family,” my response to an e-mail from a past bride saying she’s pregnant goes something like this:

30 Rock

It’s that stupid giddy feeling: smiles, excitement, and fist bumping the air a few times.  I get SO.EXCITED.

Maybe because I feel really close to most of my couples, maybe because I was there when they said their vows, or maybe it’s just the miracle of life in general.  But in any of these situations, I love hearing that they’re having a baby.

And then I get ten times more excited when they ask me to photograph maternity and new born images.

So, here’s Lindsey and Eric!  Lindsey is the most adorable pregnant lady ever, and Eric is the most goofy, adoring husband/father-to-be.

Extremely excited to share these with you guys!  And SERIOUSLY excited to meet your little one soon!

    This is just adorable. Seriously love this session and I love how you gave a little story about how excited you are when past brides call you. I feel the same way. :) Just giddy.
