the smetana family

These guys were in the car for SEVEN hours just to see me for a session!  Insert collective “No pressure, Jes”, am I right?  You may remember this awesome family from their wedding last summer, and now they are expecting a new member shortly!  Their wedding was on the shore of Lake Superior up in Tofte, MN, it was foggy but oh so gorgeous!  For their maternity session, we went for a similar beachy feel, but this time it was sunny, and equally gorgeous.  Much like their wedding, John and Andrea even ended up in the lake again at the end :).  This time we headed to Park Point Beach down by Sky Harbor Airport right here in Duluth.

We had so much fun, we played follow the leader, made silly faces, raced down the beach and skipped some rocks.  I gave John and Andrea the perfect photos for when Gage and Bennett graduate from high school… silly faces are always the best :).
