Mack Party of 5 | Mokena Maternity Session | Mokena Family Photographer

This momma is amazing! Not only is she about to be a mom of three, but she's also a nurse, a professional ballerina, a model, a beauty queen (seriously, she was Mrs. New Jersey International in 2015), and she somehow finds the time to also run her own business, Amber Rae Mack Designs, making dance costumes, tutus, and embroidery.  It's truly inspiring to see all she has accomplished.  I was so honored to be asked to document this time in her life, as she awaits the birth of her son.  Amber looked absolutely stunning, and can you believe she whipped together those sashes and flower crowns the day before her session? I told you, she's amazing.  Congrats to the Mack family on your new addition! He is going to be so well loved and impeccably dressed.   

Michaela | Whalon Lake Maternity Session | Naperville Photographer

If only we could all look as amazing as Michaela does pregnant!  This adorable little family is getting ready to move to Iowa this month.  As bummed as I am to not get to meet their new addition, I am so glad we were able to document Michaela's adorable bump before the big move. We met up at Whalon Lake in Naperville on a freezing cold Saturday in February.  Michaela was so fierce and amazing that you would never know how cold she was, and that plum maternity gown looked like it was made for her.
