I usually stay around the Dayton, Ohio, area but will sometimes travel around the southwestern portion of the state for portrait sessions. In September 2021, I made a trip to Ault Park for a maternity session in Cincinnati. Ault Park is the fourth largest park in Cincinnati.
It has picnic areas, space for children to play, nature trails, a pavilion, a lookout point, and beautiful gardens. All this natural beauty made the perfect backdrop for the Anspachs’ family and maternity session.
Ault Park Maternity Photography Session
I have had the pleasure of knowing the Anspach family – Brooke, Justin, and 13-year-old Cali – for years and have taken family photos for them in the past. I’m so excited for Brooke and Justin and this new chapter in their lives. They aren’t finding out the gender of the baby, which I think is so fun and makes things extra exciting. My guess is a boy! Boy or girl, I know Cali will be a great big sister.
(Update! It was a boy!)
Beautiful Family Memories at Ault Park
I love the fall colors Brooke, Justin, and Cali chose to wear for their session. They looked great against the changing colors of the September leaves and the flowers still blooming in the gardens. Brooke was absolutely stunning in her sunflower yellow floor-length maternity gown! Ault Park was a perfect backdrop.
When choosing what to wear for your family portrait session, it’s important to keep your looks comfortable and natural, but also timeless. Each family member’s look should complement the others, not clash. Bold colors – like the vivid yellow of Brooke’s dress – and patterns – like Cali’s flannel shirt – really pop on camera and make the photos more interesting. I think the Anspachs nailed it! Don’t they look great?
Isn’t this family beautiful? Did you love The Anspach Family’s sweet outdoor maternity photos at Ault Park? Show them some love in the comments below. If this wonderful family receives more than 15 comments, I’ll gift them a print!
