Rankin Lake Park Maternity Session: Janice and Matt


June 22, 2021

There’s nothing like being a part of my clients’ lives beyond their wedding day. I am honored to create such special bonds with my couples each year and it doesn’t escape me how meaningful these relationships are every year. Janice and Matt are one of those couples. I’ve known them for many years now, I met Janice in college. Then, I went on to photographer their engagement session, her bridal portraits, and their wedding. And now, they’re about to be parents. When they reached out about their Rankin Lake Park maternity session, I didn’t hesitate to say yes!!

I’d never photographed a session at Ranking Lake Park, but it’s GORGEOUS! I absolutely loved our time here. Not only are their beautiful trees and spots around the park, but there’s a stunning lake and the pier is just perfect. Janice, Matt, and I walked throughout a lot of the park to find the best spots to photograph them and Janice’s gorgeous baby belly. She chose the perfect floral dress to accentuate her pregnancy. Working with Janice and Matt again was such a blessing. It was truly like hanging out with friends and not work at all. That’s the dream!

Congratulations again Janice and Matt! I know that you’re going to be amazing parents and I can’t wait for you to meet your little one! And PS, I’m excited to meet your new baby too! Counting down the days until your newborn photos!!!

See another gorgeous spring maternity session here!
