Samantha and I met at my first job out of college and we became great friends over the two years I worked there. When I heard she was pregnant with her first child, I told her I would love to take maternity photos for and her husband Jay. Sam knew exactly what she wanted for her photo shoot: snow and a long, red dress.
We originally scheduled the shoot for a weekend in late January, but knowing the unpredictable nature of Indiana weather, we weren't sure if we'd have snow. When a snowstorm hit Indiana the weekend before our shoot, I called Sam and Jay up for a last-minute schedule change. We made our way to Mill Race Park in Columbus, Indiana, where we found a stunning winter backdrop for these photos - a perfect complement to the red dress.
Indiana finally got hit with snow last night. Ellie and April made a snowman and had a snowball fight today. I watched/photographed the shenanigans.
