Meet Grant, he's sweet, oh so smiley and such a chill baby. We had lots of quiet moments, I think he really enjoyed his session as much as I did! I have this thing for gingers, since my own 3 year old is one, so I was so excited to see the reddish hue in his hair. His mom and dad are really cool, and it's been really fun seeing them throughout the year for their baby announcement and belly photos. It was such an exciting day when I finally got to meet him! Looking forward to document some of his milestones in the coming year.
It was so great meeting this first time expectant couple. I'm glad we were able to capture one of the cutest baby bumps I've ever seen...she was due any day! The sunset was perfect and complimented her natural glow.
Nothing is more exciting than telling your loved ones that your whole world is changing in the most amazing way possible! I loved meeting Jennifer and Matthew, they are so cute in every way, and excited to share their news. Looking forward to documenting their growing baby belly and little boy when he arrives this summer!
This family session was amazing! Everything about it was perfect and I had so much fun setting up. Originally, this was going to be just a tea party photo session with sweet little London and a few of her closest stuffed friends. However, the family just found out they are expecting baby #2, so tea time also became a good time to get mom and dad in there and make an announcement. I'd like to take credit for the adorable chalkboard framed sign, but London's mommy made it and was the mastermind behind the setup and everything turned out beautifully! I really do love seeing a vision come to life and my greatest reward is to know I've captured it.
After we had tea, we walked around and the sun was just setting, so we had lovely skies for some family photos. I'm so excited in doing this mama's maternity photos this fall, she is so stunning, and will be absolutely glowing when her baby belly is nice is and full.
One of my favorite pieces of the tea party was a vintage Cabbage Patch doll. As an 80's child, I totally appreciate those dolls and have a few of my own stashed away. Our kids may never know how awesome our toys were back then, but glad the internet makes everything so accessible so we can show them or even find some.
Mother's everywhere dream of having a perfect healthy baby. This lovely mama, had twins! A perfect boy and girl, and will be welcoming another little baby girl this summer. Nature has an amazing way of displaying genetics, and I absolutely love the variety of hair color in the family. Will baby #3 be a fiery ginger like her mom?! As a mother of a brunette and a red head, it's been suggested we have a third to see if he/she will be a blonde :) I had loads of fun chasing after these two energetic twins! Their giggles and smiles are contagious.
I'm so behind on blogging. Several sessions I need to post! It's no secret I love a baby belly and I love art. Put a pregnant ballerina, an artist and a photographer together and create magic <3 Love these images by this beautiful mommy friend.
The multi talented Jane. Jane does amazing face painting for parties and glamor make up for fashion and special occasions. When I was pregnant with #2 I asked her if she would paint my belly, and being that I had a pretty "big canvas" lol, She did a phenomenal job! So glad I inspired her to venture on to pregnant mamas!

I can't tell you how much I love pregnant mamas! Those lovely baby bumps remind me of my own pregnancies and the beautiful time it is in a woman's life. Sometimes as women, we get uncomfortable in front of the camera during this time. I want to reassure the mamas out there, especially the first timers that they ARE really beautiful and it's so important to document these months that go so quickly. This gorgeous first time mommy is glowing and this beautiful couple are twice as blessed and expecting twins in December. I was so happy to meet them and pray their little bundles arrive safely.
