This gorgeous maternity photography session took place at Eklutna Lake, which has become one of my favorite locations. The views are absolutely stunning and the rocks and driftwood are the perfect “playground” for the kids, which means they’re having a blast and don’t realize we’re taking amazing pictures, too.

Mama’s dress went perfectly with the dark trees and the other neutral, creamy tones balanced things out nicely, especially against the gray stones. Green is one of those tricky colors that can cast a sickly hue on the skin (which is the last thing you want in pictures!), but it’s all about finding the right shade. Evergreen, forest, and olive are all “good tones” and help neutralize the vivid yellow in our summer grass, which equals very, very pretty pictures.
