Saana | Maternity Photos

Saana is tall and blond and every bit as Scandinavian as she looks. She was a little hesitant about taking these photos, because she was 39 weeks pregnant, and feeling a little bit over that glowy, ethereal earth-mother stage. But I’m here to tell you that she still looked fabulous. Saana was carrying her baby so beautifully, and I knew that – although she may not feel like it now – in a few months or years, she’d be glad she had some photos to document this sweet time before she became a mother of two. (Plus, the rapeseed fields are in bloom right now and the yellow is incredible, so I just needed to get out there.)

I’m glad we took these when we did – Saana gave birth to a beautiful baby girl just a week later.

I was going to post these tomorrow, but today is Saana’s birthday. She’s celebrating by eating cake and snuggling her 5-day-old daughter. I want to celebrate her by showing you how beautiful she is…

  1. Thank you so much for these Faith. What a beautiful memories to have.
    Feels unreal that it was only last week when we were there on that beautiful evening and now she’s here and it almost feels like she’s always been.
    Lots of love,
    S
