I have been shooting birth photos for some time now, but this was my first maternity session! My dear friend Stephanie – expecting her third baby any day now – lives right near these sunflower fields. Our first scheduled date was prior to the blooming of these flowers and it was rained out – serendipitously so! We pushed back a week and were granted a gorgeous location with flowers in full bloom. I know the color is such an exciting focal point of these fields, but I still couldn’t resist rendering many of them in black and white. I have a love of the monochrome. Here are my favorites.
