Hancock, MI Maternity Session: October
When Briana reached out to me about a Hancock, MI maternity session, she mentioned that she wanted fall pictures. Generally maternity sessions take place toward the end of a woman’s third trimester to really feature “the bump,” but she didn’t want to wait until the winter.
Personally, I actually think doing your maternity session during your second trimester is a GREAT idea! The second trimester is ideal for maternity portraits. Generally mothers-to-be have regained a lot of the energy that they were missing during the first trimester. In addition, your bump has “popped,” but it isn’t growing as quickly as it will toward the end of your pregnancy. This means you can choose a dress and know it will still fit you a couple of weeks later!
Other than a Hancock, MI maternity session with fall colors, the only other thing Briana requested was for a location that would allow for sunset images. I loved that she trusted me to help her narrow down her location options, including a last minute change that led to some truly epic images! The day turned out even better than we had hoped with clear skies and SEVENTY DEGREES in the beginning of October – what?! That’s unheard of in the Upper Peninsula, but we took full advantage of the beautiful weather.
Briana and Tyler met years back working together at one of the ferry companies for Mackinac Island, MI. Mackinac holds a lot of fond memories for my family and me growing up. It was fun to learn some of the background about living and working on the island during the summers.
Tyler and Briana are the type of couple that you feel like you’ve always known. They are so easy going which made it easy to talk and laugh together.

Tyler and Briana, it was a pleasure to spend the evening getting to know you both better and document this new season of life you are entering. You are going to be the best parents to this sweet baby girl. I am cheering for you, and I can’t wait to hear the news that she has arrived!!
While we wait for Baby O, I hope you’ll enjoy this glimpse of their maternity session!
