Beautiful Yosemite Maternity Session

Beautiful Yosemite Maternity Session

For expecting couple Diana and Mike, the journey to parenthood was a long, tough road. After years of infertility and failing treatments, they finally found success after traveling to Colorado to seek the help of a well known doctor. The struggle of becoming pregnant has only made this time all the more special to them, and they wanted to document it in this stunning maternity session by Ashlee Gadd Photography. Diana shared such a sweet description of the shoot, so read on for the details, and then be sure to see so many more gorgeous images over in the full gallery!

“As our miracle fraternal baby girls began to grow within, we had no doubt that we wanted to cherish every single second of this pregnancy. It was important to us to capture the overwhelming amount of love and gratitude we feel for these growing babies through the gift of photography.

“There is one very special place near and dear to this native Californian mommy and daddy to be and that place is Yosemite National Park. We have so many incredible memories cozied up around a campfire in the Yosemite valley and backpacking in the serene and majestic backcountry. I have always gone to Yosemite as a place to retreat. I refer to Yosemite as ‘my sacred place’.

“With the great help of one very talented photographer – our long awaited dream became a reality. Our growing baby bump met the beauty of Yosemite. It meant the world to us to have this incredible time in our lives – a time of pure joy and plentitude – photographed in a place we have cherished for so long! To think, this is just the beginning of many Yosemite family photographs to come!”
