Lafayette Square Maternity Photos: Sara and Andrew (and "Angus")

Sara and Andrew found me online while searching for a St. Louis photographer to take maternity photos; they're having a baby boy to whom they've given the code name "Angus" prior to his arrival and they wanted to get some professional photos taken. Sara wrote and said that an "urban maternity" style was what she wanted, but she'd like some shots in a park setting, too. "I envision something like an engagement photo session but with a really big belly," she added.

Sara picked Lafayette Square as our destination, and I learned on the shoot that she and Andrew actually had their wedding and reception at Sqwires. The whole area obviously has a special place in their hearts.

We had a lot of fun getting to know each other as we strolled (and waddled) around the neighborhood, ducked into doorways to hide from the harsh sun, and headed into Lafayette Park.

Here are some of my personal favorites from Sara and Andrew's maternity photo session:

We even found a place for a magical storybook photo in Lafayette Park so I gave it some storybook coloration:

I love this green door. How perfect is it?

Congrats to Sara and Andrew on "Angus's" pending arrival! I hope we get to hang out again soon!
