Kate Milavickas – Chicago Maternity Session

July 29, 2015 Jasemine Denise Photography 3 min read 1 Comment

This is no regular maternity session.
Picture this! You walk into your local Hot topic and are greeted by the friendliest person you’ve ever met. She’s dancing, she’s laughing and telling these terrible knock knock jokes. You still laugh though because she’s absolutely precious. You stay there. You don’t even buy anything. You just enjoy her company.

That was my first impression of Kate Milavickas. I did buy a Mac Miller shirt. I also learned that Kate was in a beautiful relationship and her lovely husband was deployed. Yet when she sent me the message about booking a session, I got the greatest surprise of all time. She was booking a session to celebrate the coming of her beautiful baby girl!Kate Milavickas-Jasemine Denise Photography-3

What makes this shoot special?

This wasn’t just any maternity session. This was a gift. It was meant to make that special someone smile. I’m talking to you Matthew! As we draped her hubby’s uniform over her shoulder, she quickly hid her tears. You could just tell how much this meant to her, proudly wearing the uniform of her beloved. When she told me that she was sending these pictures out to him in his next care package, I held my tears back until after the shoot.

This next part was so important.

She said to me — “I brought a flag scarf because I would never disrespect the flag. I want a few pictures that I can make the background of a letter I write to my baby girl.”

So I decided to write a letter to Sophie Grace as Well.

Dear Sophie Grace. 

You are a blessed to be a blessing. When I first met your mother, I was completely in love with her vibes. She was one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met working retail, and trust me.. You’ll understand that joke when you’re older. I remember the first time I saw your father, your mother was telling me how handsome he was and how amazing his smile is. So I knew immediately that you are going to be beautiful. That’s an amazing thing.

I also know that your mother has carried you with her not just in her belly but in her heart. There’s a big place inside of it for you right next to where she keeps your daddy while he’s off fighting for this country. With all the love he has to fight for this country, you’ve got a daddy with a humongous heart because I know that he’s going to share every single atom of that love with you as he’s done your mother who is his wife.

Sophie, your parents are giving you the most wonderful gift you could ever receive. Life, with the promise of unconditional love with no matter the distance, the danger or the days… They will love you forever because of who you are and the people that you came from.

I can’t wait to photograph you and to meet you.

I travel as a photographer, I write novels , and I fan girl a lot. I have an unnecessary attachment to all things 80s punk, 90s hip hop, and girl power. I typically write in the same tone that I talk in so you should probably be prepared for that. Just saying.
