When I found out she was pregnant, I knew I could not wait to shoot her belly once again. Finally at the end of this summer (before harvest started), we were able to gather her family and do early belly photos. We chose the perfect day and an amazing spot to photograph our "All American Belly" summer belly.
Pregnancy looked fabulous on her, go ahead, keep looking.
Sometimes when you aren't trying to get a photo and you just let a couple be, that is when the best moment is captured. He started to show signs of enjoying this, but when he leaned in to kiss her forehead, she melted into him.
Beautiful, right? I know. It was hard to choose which photos to edit, because so many of the shots were amazing. She had a glow that I only hoped I was able to capture.
YUP, the baby is gorgeous, just like them.
Sweet, sweet and sweet.
I can not put into words just how much I love to photograph maternity and the importance of capturing your belly in the season. Hot summer day or even cold snowy winter. Thankfully, with hers we did a end of summer and a Fall shoot as well. (That session coming soon)
This image was one of my favorites for so many reasons. She was so relaxed and enjoying the cool breeze and that sweet sunset.
And then I made a pregnant lady lay down in the grass. So kind of me, but LOOK at her eyes (and the belly).
We shot all the way till the sun said goodbye.
This was easily one of my favorite maternity shoots to this day. Well, until the next one.
Welcome to Donya Marie Photography. Everything is a slow work in progress at the moment as I get things all tidy here.
My name is Donya Kolosiwsky and I own Donya Marie Photography. I am located in Northwest Indiana with my husband of 13 years and our three children. In a previous life I was a nurse but have since become a stay at home mother after our last baby was born. This time has allowed me the opportunity to develop, learn and grow as a photographer and I am so thankful for it.
I have been photographing friends, family and others since about 2007 and have loved every moment behind the camera. It is my happy place and love the joy I see when I deliver photographs to a family.
It's my hopes to have a space to showcase my growing work, where I really do believe that everybody is art.
Thank you for stopping by,
