One of the downsides of having your first baby young is that all or most of your friends aren't in that place in life. None of my close knit group of friends in college could relate. Now years later Carolyn is my first close college friend to become a mom and I was so excited to do these maternity photos for her! She and Kyle purchased their dream piece of land and have been making such a paradise out of it including this ridiculously stunning field of super tall sunflowers. Carolyn hand planted these even while pregnant! It paid off because they ended up being the perfect backdrop for their maternity session. Mid Michigan lacks breathtaking locations sometimes and I get so excited when people make themselves a little piece of paradise to photograph on instead!
