February 23, 2023 - European Garden-Inspired Maternity Session

About This Session:

Abby and Aaron had the maternity session of their dreams just in time–they welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Ace, two weeks later after an early induction. When the pair met me at Bartram Gardens in Philadelphia, we were promptly greeted with dark clouds and a rainstorm. Thankfully the storm passed after some time, and we were able to resume their European garden-inspired session.

What Inspired Me: Even though Bartram Gardens is tucked away in the middle of busy South Philadelphia, it instantly transports me to some faraway European fantasy. I loved the book The Secret Garden growing up, and the nation's oldest botanical gardens are the perfect place for a romantic, whimsical maternity session.

From Abby: "I would definitely recommend Courtney! She has an easygoing and sweet personality, so it was easy to work with her. The photos of my maternity shoot are beautiful!! The poses look natural and I love the style of the edits. I will treasure them for a long long time."

Equipment Used:

Sony a7R IV

Sony 1.4 35mm GM
