Anna&Adam {South Bend Maternity Session- Shelby Chari Photography}

I have known Anna...well, for a very very long time. We went to elementary school together and became very close in High School. I am so thankful for her friendship over all these years. I am thankful to consider her wonderful husband, Adam, a friend too. For anyone who knows Anna they know that she is... "a loud human" as she puts it. ;) She is spunky and wild and full of joy and its one of the things I admire most about her. Adam is her perfect compliment as he balances her out and seeing the two of them together is pure love. I attended their wedding nearly 3 years ago and when she told me this past year they were expecting their first little love I couldn't have been happier. Sweet little Eloise is due to arrive any day now, Literally ANY day now. I was absolutely honored when they also asked me to capture Ellie's arrival. If you have been keeping up with my work you may have seen that I shot my very first birth on NYE for some very close clients/friends of mine. Births aren't something I am planning to offer year round with wedding reservations, but if the opportunity comes about in my off season...I don't know that I will be able to say no. :P There is simply nothing else in the world like watching a human being take their first breath. I am sitting on pins and needles awaiting your arrival sweet Ellie. Here are some of my favorite shots from Anna & Adam's maternity session. Xoxo

Tonya&Todd {Maternity}

I absolutely loved this session, Tonya & Todd were so much fun and I had a blast getting to know them. Their session took place at the same location they had their engagement photos taken, How sweet is that? Tonya is due at the end of August and I will get to meet sweet little Trevor here in the studio! Here are some of my favorite shots of this sweet sweet couple! <3

Nicole & Chad {Maternity}

Nicole & Chad were SO much fun to work with, these two work so well together! I love all of the sweet little smiles they exchanged throughout their session. At the end of May they will be welcoming their first child, a sweet baby boy named Harrison. Here are some of my favorite shots from this session.
