Adorable Couple's Maternity Session in Pasadena, CA

I can't stop smiling when I look at these maternity photos by The Why We Love! There is something so unbelievably sweet and lighthearted about this adorable couple. Photographers Danielle and Kevin wanted draw out the connection between the two of them, and wow, did they deliver! You also have to give credit to this beautiful couple, Ellie and Matt, who wanted to capture the tremendous amount of love they already had for their little boy. Ellie put it well when she said, "It felt to us that Danielle and Kevin were peeking into a special time in our lives and capturing those intimate moments as a growing family."

Ellie also has some crafty talent (check out her blog!), so they all put together a fun photo booth as well. They used a geometric textile from Danielle's collection, vintage yellow chairs from designer Beth O'Brien, a recycled paper block letter J, Matt's childhood teddy bear, and framed letterpress art. You can see more from this maternity session in the full gallery.
