eva + erik's adventurous desert maternity session | canyonlands national park | moab, utah wedding photographer

When Eva first reached out to me about shooting a maternity session for her + Erik, I was honestly a little nervous. I can count the number of maternity sessions I've done on one hand and those include family shoots, but she loved our work specifically and wanted something adventurous in the Utah desert, so it really was a perfect fit! We ended up bringing them out to some of our favorite spots in Canyonlands National Park near Moab and soaking in the warm desert sunset. It was such a fun session between shooting and talking about everything from exploring with dogs to big life decisions. Their sense of adventure was honestly so refreshing (and shocking!) as I kept saying "okay, walk toward that edge but not too close" and they'd gleefully run right up to the edge with no fear of heights at all. It was so much fun and I especially loved the challenge of trying something new with this session. Eva is one of the most gorgeous humans I've met and she absolutely rocked her adorable belly. I am so thankful we got to document this special time in their lives and can't wait to see their adorable little baby boy come September!
