This was a really special shoot. Erika, who lives in Florida and Michael, who lives in Louisiana, don’t see each other often as their jobs as aerospace engineers keep them busy in their respective cities. They are welcoming their first child, a boy, in just seven short weeks and I’m so happy they asked me to photograph this rare moment they have together, while visiting family in Austin.  We met at Mueller Lake Park in Central Austin under the perfect amount of cloudy skies (natures light diffuser), and when Erika stepped out of the car that they had been driving in since 5am looking absolutely fabulous in 5 inch heels and perfect hair at 33 weeks, I was impressed. Here are some of my favorites from their sweet maternity mini session:
