When my friend Elizabeth asked if I could take her maternity photos for her, I was beyond excited!  I had been wanting to do a "fancy" maternity session for a long time, and I knew she would totally be up for it!  Kosta and Elizabeth's daughter, Olivia (who we call Livy) loves to dress up, too, (and has a slight shoe obsession already ;-) ) so I knew she would love to be a part of this photo session.  And she felt like a princess!

I decided to make Elizabeth's and Livy's outfits and they came out perfect for what I was envisioning!  My sister helped me sew the lace tube dresses and I made the tulle skirts to go over. They looked great on the girls!

We went to Northside Park in Wheaton for the session.  I'd been wanting to try it out for a photo session for awhile because I knew it had pretty grounds and cool bridges.  We went in the evening close to sunset and it was the perfect, serene setting, complete with a log cabin!
