Vivian and I have worked together before. You may remember an earlier blog post of her in a gorgeous engagement gown with photos from Elyton Hotel and Morris Avenue. (You can see that post here. https://bangimages.com/birmingham-engagement-dress-session-elyton-hotel-vivian/)
For her maternity shoot, we met on a chilly morning in February at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, as the gardens began to come back to life. We were able to find a little bit of color the farther from the entrance we walked. Vivian really like the reflective pool so our first stop was there. Her husband joined us for a few photographs as well.
Vivian is elegant. She had several dresses she wanted to wear and she wore them all so beautifully. I love that she chose to show off her wonderful baby belly.
As you can see, we found some lovely cherry blossoms that complemented her red dress. Judging these photos only, you would never guess these were taken in February.
I love photographing Vivian and hope to get to photograph that squishy baby of hers. I congratulate Vivian and Dat on their new addition!
