WOW. This session was a literal dream come true! Tanya and Alex are expecting their first, a little girl, in December— just two months out! We spent the perfect evening out in a gorgeous field at sunset, taking some photos to commemorate the short time left of just the two of them. We had only met just before their session, but these two are AMAZING and I left feeling like I had two new friends! Also, Alex’s family owns a new restaurant in CF so I just had to leave that on the blog. Go check out Wilbo Burgers here!

Our session started in the shade.. but you’ll see that it definitely heated up ;)

Tanya is a fairy/goddess. For real! It’s a good thing she only had gooorgeous crown-like braids for pictures (and not a flower crown) or I’d probably have passed out. Haha!

I just had to end with that last one! Sunflare and maternity photos— what else could you ask for!? Happy Friday, friends! I’m busy bouncing around Des Moines, Cedar Falls, and the rest of the midwest right now (see ya later, Wisconsin!) for weddings, family photos, and everything else. I’ll be updating the blog more in the following weeks, fingers crossed!
