I photographed Emily + Pat's maternity session back in July at one of my favorite locations, Elizabeth Park in Hartford, Connecticut. It's a gorgeous park with a lot of beautiful photo op areas, including a huge rose garden. The roses had peaked about a week before the session, but they were still beautiful and provided a sweet, feminine setting for Emily.
I had photographed their Boston engagement session back in 2011, but then got pregnant and was due to have Lily the week after their wedding, which wouldn't allow me to travel out of state. It was a bummer because I loved working with them so much, so I was incredibly happy to hear from them again to do their maternity and newborn photos. It's always a fun experience as a photographer to capture different stages of a family's life.
