What a beautiful experience I had capturing the Ladendorf's maternity session! I met Chelsea and Derek a few years back when Chelsea wanted me to do their engagement photos. I've since captured many of their life milestones including their Cabo wedding!

The couple chose Downtown Austin in Zilker Botanical Garden for their photography location. It was a lovely evening. Chelsea and Derek do such a great job making a photoshoot more like a date night. They laughed and smiled the whole time! It truly is a joy having them in front of my camera. It was also fun finding all the locations within the park. For early December, the garden still was plenty green.

Their baby will soon be welcomed into this world! I'm so excited for these two to become parents. Through these photos, you can already tell how much their little one is loved. Congratulations Chelsea and Derek!
