Brookside Gardens Maternity Session || Woodland Creatures Maternity Session

Brookside-Garden-Maternity Session

In January, I received a letter from a dear friend. The letter announced her pregnancy! My friend, Crina is going to have a baby! If you know me or have followed me for any period of time you’ll likely recognize Crina. She has been a life-long friend of mine.

After hearing this news, I knew I wanted to plan a maternity session for Crina when she came to visit next. Once she and her husband, Sam, locked in their flights I started to plan. After chatting with our mutual friend, Deenah (thanks for the help, Deenah!), the theme of the maternity session became woodland creatures; a woodsy sort of vibe. I tried to keep the session a surprise from Crina, and the night before the session I let her in on the secret. She tried on the dress, and thankfully, it fit perfectly.

We arrived at Brookside just before sunset. It was the perfect weather, it wasn’t too cold, and it wasn’t snowing (like the week before). We got started right away.

Jaimie of The Red Bandana Bakery made a cranberry pear semi-naked cake with mascarpone frosting and caramel glaze, which looked & tasted delicious  (I may have had a slice). Krystal of Bridal Beauty Associates did a beautiful job on Crina’s hair and makeup. The makeup was natural with a dark lip. Her hair was half up, with texture and a elegant braid. Mei-Ye Wong of Boheme’s Jubilee did an absolutely amazing job with the decor, she brought all the perfect items to bring the session together and with the help of Sherece of Sincerely Rece they made the details lovely, topped with Kimberly George’s banner it was an adorable way to announce that a baby is on it’s way.

I almost squealed in excitement when I opened an envelop to see the adorable woodland creatures that Amanada of Designs as You Wish hand made for the pregnancy announcement. Haley of Bubbly Box made the cutest combination of baby goodies, which she put into a gift box for the expecting parents.

Sam and Crina, of course made such lovely models and an adorable couple! Yay to them becoming parents!
