I love happy accidents - and this maternity session in Mesa, Arizona, was full of them. We had to cancel last minute because there was a sudden heat wave over the weekend. We rescheduled for the next morning in a different location closer to Lindy's home because it was so early in the morning (and, because, pregnant).

I had never been to Gilbert Riparian Preserve, so I got there early to scope it out. It's huge so I didn't have enough time to walk around the entire preserve. When Lindy arrived (a little late, because, pregnant) I told her that we were going to walk around and look for pretty spots. The first few spots were okay, but not that wow factor I was looking for. Then we decided to take a little turn and found the most beautiful field of reeds (read: the happy accident).

I just love the colors of the field, and love the adoration this couple shows for each other. Lindy had her sweet baby this week, and I can't wait to see them again for newborn pictures in a couple weeks.
