“Babies are bits of star-dust blown from the hand of God. Lucky is the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star.”– Larry Barretto

And this woodsy maternity session from Jenny Beck Photography captures a beautiful woman holding her star!

What We Love:

Jenny:  I loved capturing this young love between two first time parents.  They were so sweet and I loved their excitement for this next chapter in their lives.  All the colors they wore tied together perfectly and was really offset from the budding flowers and leaves!  I enjoy all the greenery and landscapes in the background!

Lisa and Rachel:  We love the colors and styling  from this woodsy maternity session.  There is a great use of accessories in this session which really are the icing on the cake when styling a photo session.  We also adore how Jenny was able to capture the true love and anticipation of first time parents.  Are you loving that flower crown my Madison House Designs?
