Future World Traveler Maternity Session

Expecting mom and On to Baby member Heather Cook Elliott met her husband Brian on a cruise 14 years ago. Traveling is their shared passion, and they know their baby will soon join them in an adventurous life of world exploration. This idea also inspired the nursery, which they decorated with National Geographic magazines that Heather intends to read to her little one at bed time. They decided to bring a bit of this theme into their amazing maternity session with Caca Santoro Photography. Heather, who also styled the shoot herself, ordered National Geographic issues from the month and year they were born. How great is it that Heather’s cover shows a gorilla with a camera? What’s even funnier is that she already owned a tee shirt with a similar illustration! You can see more of this adorable couple and these photos by visiting the full gallery.
