The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum had some beautiful areas for these maternity photos. After a long season of waiting, Mike and Danielle are welcoming their first little one this summer. I couldn’t be more thrilled for them during this incredibly exciting time.

Our evening together was filled with warm sunshine, sharing in their joy of meeting their little one soon and planning for their upcoming newborn session. So much to look forward to in the weeks and months ahead.

We had been hopeful the crabapple trees would have been in bloom, but with the cooler Spring, the timing didn’t align. I was grateful that this happy couple went with the flow as we enjoyed the gardens and captured their maternity photos. I loved that little specks of springtime green made it into the frame.

Be sure to check back in a few weeks to see pictures from their studio newborn session. Until then, enjoy some highlights from the maternity photos I captured at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
