Let’s be honest, is there anything more beautiful than a glowing mama-to-be and her doting partner? Add a perfect golden sunset, and you have the makings of a stunning maternity session. Liliane and Ben blew me away with their love for this new little life, and it really shows in their photos.
We chose Paul Ruster Park in Indianapolis at sunset as the setting for their maternity shoot. I have to say that this park is an incredible spot if you’re looking for an outdoor location for maternity, engagement, or even family photos in Indianapolis. There are so many corners to explore with rolling hills, giant trees, and beautiful wildflowers sprinkled throughout. I’m always a fan of taking a session outdoors to soak up all of that natural light and beauty!
What’s funny about this session is that as I was driving to meet Liliane and Ben, it began pouring down rain unexpectedly. I mean the rain was coming down relentlessly with no signs of stopping and we were so afraid that this summer thunderstorm would ruin the evening session we had planned. Somehow things worked in our favor because as soon as I pulled into the park, the rain subsided, the clouds parted, and the most gorgeous golden sunshine poured through the trees providing the perfect setting we’d been hoping for.
I can confidently say that Liliane and Ben will make amazing parents. How do I know this? Throughout our session, they not only interacted with each other with such love and tenderness, but they gushed about all the things they were excited to experience as they become a family of three. I am so happy they have these photos to look back on and remember such a special time in their life. Wishing this sweet family nothing but the best as they embark on their new journey!
