forest maternity session | portland photographer
This beautiful momma-to-be braved the cold Oregon weather with me, for some stunning maternity shots! It took us a couple reschedules and location changes to get these, due to weather, but I'm so glad we did. I love how Kady is stepping into motherhood, and she looked so natural with her baby bump. She was surrounded by nature's beauty, the love of her little one on the way, and in the arms of her fiancé.
"Every mother has her own journey. Sometimes that journey can take us to the places that we least expected. For some, it might be difficult. Pregnancy isn't always happy and fun. The morning sickness, insomnia, and backache is just some small part of being pregnant. For me, I value those times when I get to find out the gender of the baby, I look forward to doctor's appointments, and I enjoy those little movements going on inside my body. Like all mothers, I want nothing more than a happy and healthy baby." -Kady Chen
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
