Portraits: waiting for baby {s}, fonferek glen, green bay

Green-Bay-Maternity-Photos-Pregnancy-Photography-Fonferek-Falls-Rustic-Country-Spring-Belly-Kasey-and-BenWhen it comes to portraits, most people want to wait until the grass has become thick and all the trees have developed leaves. But babies have their own plans and timelines, which gets us out and about photographing in one of my favorite times of year – spring. I’ve got nothing against lush beds of green grass, but for me, there is nothing like those creamy early spring tones of fields and branches – perfect for a rustic, country maternity session like this one.

Ashley and Scott both studied Dairy Science at UW-Madison, and since it was a small program, they got to know each other very well and connected in a way that brings us to today, three weeks away from the arrival of their first baby girl. Being “cold weather people” the 45 degree day was no challenge for them, and the location we chose fit well with their personalities and backgrounds, both coming from Minnesota farming families. We got the opportunity to include some favorite childhood books, tiny John Deere cow socks, and of course, one of Baby {S}’s first photos – her sonogram.

We know there are many family members out their waiting patiently for this little girl to arrive, and we can’t wait to be a part of her newborn session once she makes her debut. Congratulations, Ashley and Scott!
