I first met Jen and Chris when Jen was pregnant for the first time. Then I met their darling little girl at the hospital at just a couple days old.  I’ve photographed them many times since but it was so exciting getting to document another pregnancy for them.  Of course this time around little miss was present in these photos but there was something extra special about these few minutes where it was just the 2 of them again. Just as in love and excited about their baby on the way as the day I met them.

Erin is a fellow photographer, the face behind the documentary photography Captured Grace by Erin.  She and her husband John were expecting their first baby this winter.  When I first started out I didn’t love maternity photography sessions.  But in the last few years that’s totally changed and I really enjoy them.  Whether it’s new parents to be and being able to capture them for the last time as a couple family before their lives change with the arrive of first baby.  Or if it’s a family session that also features the soon to be addition of the newest family member.  Pregnant bellies make a nice bonus to a session!

Erin and John were so excited about the anticipation of their little one.  Their adorable little girl has arrived and they seem to be head over heels for her!

These are my wonderful neighbors.  And I really mean WONDERFUL!  Like last weekend while I was gone for a session and bad traffic meant I was gone much longer than expected, they saved the day multiple times.  Did you ever watch I Love Lucy and think who really has a neighbor like that?  I can count on Stephannie to be my Ethel when I decide to bake cake before realizing I’m out of sugar or needing a Chewbacca costume part and of course she has some custom creation on hand.

Andrew wanted to plan a family session for Stephannie’s big milestone birthdate.  That husbands is a very thoughtful birthday gift ;).  In addition to Stephannie having a big birthday, she had gone through a very emotionally hard year with the loss of her mother and then her brother.  I watched my friend endure a very trying, emotionally exhausting, physically exhausting, mentally exhausting and draining period of life.  Through it all she managed to still be a rock star mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, artist,  and I could go on and on.  She is pretty amazing and one of the strongest people I know.  At the end of a difficult year but also a milestone birthday year, I was so happy to have been able to capture a little momento for her to remember this time of what life was like at this stage for the five of them.

This was my first session of the year.  I always take the majority of December off and was so excited about getting back to work at the beginning of January.  This winter El Nino actually lived up to the hype.  This day it had been raining like crazy but we held off on rescheduling.  I doubted not cancelling even as I was driving to the session but was so glad when I pulled up and saw this stunning post storm sky.  I hadn’t seen this family, which I had fallen in love with the last time I saw them.  That happened to be when I had the privilege of documenting this little sweetheart’s birth and the moment they became parents.  Well this maternity session was leading up to the next time I’d see them when I had the pleasure to once again watch them welcome another baby girl into the world.  They are the most sweet and adorable family, and have since gain another precious little addition!

Michelle is an old friend that I used to teach with.  We were pregnant with our first babies at the same time.  I’ve had the pleasure of doing a newborn session for their youngest and family sessions since then. While editing this session when I got to an image of Michelle and her oldest boy and it made my momma heart ache.  Our boys are close in age and looking at the image of this momma and her big boy made me realize how old my baby is too.  I think I even texted Michelle with a screenshot saying where did our babies go!?!  I had so much fun catching up with this family and seeing how much the kids have grown.
