Chicago City Maternity Session | Chicago Maternity Photographer | Heather Hackney Photography | Chicago Family Photographer | Urban Maternity Session

Chicago just might be one of the most beautiful cities in the world during the Summer season (although I could be a little bias ;)). It’s architecture and gardens also create a stunning backdrop for photo sessions.

When Krystal first contacted me she was interested in a studio maternity session. After talking further about how beautiful an outdoor session would be during this time of year she opted for an outdoor city maternity session instead. And I am so glad that she made that decision. We wanted a mix of garden and true Chicago cityscape so we decided to begin our session at The Lurie Garden located in the heart of downtown Chicago. The garden is in full bloom this time of year which was perfect to highlight this season of new life for Krystal and Tam.

After a few images in the garden we decided to explore a little more and grab some city lights. It was such a joy photographing this beautiful couple’s maternity session and spending the evening with them. I just know they are going to be such amazing parents.

Congratulations Krystal and Tam - so excited for your baby girl arriving soon!
