Rattlesnake Lake, North Bend, Wa
For Caitlyn’s maternity session, the stormy fall weather definitely arrived. We had such a beautiful time at Rattlesnake Lake though, playing in the the wind as it whipped around us. The rain held it’s distance after my goofy pleading conversation with the universe — “You will PLEASE not rain until after we are done shooting!” I rather love that the weather listened… where as I don’t normally mind shooting in the rain, it was just so windy I was worried she might become a popsicle by facing both the wind + rain.
I had a perfect pink bohemian dress for Caitlyn to wear, which showed off her glowing baby bump. She is also one of my favorite humans to photograph… sorry everyone else, lol. She just has that trust in me to create without expectations, which can be so freeing + make for the best sessions!
Given this is her third pregnancy, I asked Caitlyn, “How do you feel for this pregnancy, when you hold your baby bump?” Her answer makes my eyes leak… for days… all the feels…
“I feel you my love, we have yet to meet but my heart knows you.” —Caitlyn
Let’s have an adventure + capture some beautiful images…
