Today I’m excited to share some our our maternity photos for baby #2!
While the shoot was maternity-centric, it actually kind of tripled as a ‘Maternity/Family/Lake is 2’ photoshoot. The photos were taken at the Rose Garden, which is a 4.5-acre All-American Rose Selection Public Display Garden located in Greenwood Park behind the Des Moines Art Center. The historic garden is a scenic spot for gardeners, weddings, photoshoots and more!
The shoot was last month and while the roses typically don’t start blooming until June, it’s still such a lovely setting. We lucked out and had the most beautiful morning with ideal weather and light!

Aly photographed the shoot and I can’t rave about her enough. She is so easy to work with and is an absolute master of her craft. She sent more than 200 photos(!!) so it was no easy feat to narrow them down for this post! Aly also took Lake’s newborn photos and Lake’s one year photos.
My best friend, Kelsi, did my makeup and did a phenomenal job as always. She did my makeup for my maternity photos for Baby #1 as well as my wedding makeup. She is truly a makeup magician and I can’t recommend her services enough.
Also, if you’re interested, I posted all the details from the shoot, including everyone’s outfit information, at the bottom of this post!
