Maternity Photos Rochester MN – 36 Weeks

We are approaching the arrival of our second child, a BOY!  At 36 weeks and 2 days pregnant, I finally decided to pull out the camera and photograph my wife!  During my wife’s first pregnancy, I was very diligent about photographing her.  We had numerous photo sessions with my “Watch Her Grow” series and planned […]

During the past year as Emily was pregnant, I began a series of photos called “Watch Her Grow”.  The watch her grow series were images taken weekly of my wife’s pregnancy. The majority of the project was shot on film.  Although I generally do not shoot film for client work, I love film.  I love […]

After 17 hours of labor, our precious baby girl has finally arrived.  Emily is doing great and so is our baby girl.  Even though I’m big fainter, I had absolutely no problems helping with the delivery and cutting the umbilical cord, it was amazing!!  During the course of the entire pregnancy, we have found it […]

I cannot believe we have just a couple weeks left till the baby comes.  It’s been exciting seeing Emily’s belly literally morph as the baby moves.  Emily have been the best prego mom-to-be, she has been working so hard lately, but still has the “motherly” glow about her (hopefully I captured that in the images […]

I remember when we first found out Emily was pregnant and due February 17.  As a photographer, my firsts two thoughts were…”Crap” that is the week of WPPI (a big wedding photographer convention and my favorite week of the year) and “Shoot” how am I going to shoot Em’s maternity photos in the winter?  I […]

While in Utah for Thanksgiving, my dad lent me one of his old Hasselblad cameras to shoot more of Em’s “Watch Her Grow” photos.  This camera is built like a cube of lead.  I shot the following images using a Hasselblad 500C with an 80mm f/2.8 lens.  I ended up shooting a roll of B&W […]

This past week, I took Emily out for another maternity shoot.  I wanted to mix things up this time around by shooting the session on film.  I have been so giddy all week waiting to see these photos and I’m just in love with what we got.  For anyone wondering, these were shot on my […]

I have had several people on Facebook, email, and family back home ask when I was going to post some images of Emily.  Well the truth is…even though she’s now 26 weeks, she didn’t really start showing till very recently.  But now she is a growing almost daily it seems. It’s really been a pretty […]
