This session was extra special since Bridgett and Jeff are my sister and brother-in-law!!! We had such a fantastic time capturing these images of Bridgett’s final days of pregnancy…just a few days later the newest member of the family made her appearance! You will get to meet her soon, but in the meantime, enjoy!

We love you guys!!

When Meghan and I first met to discuss doing her maternity photos, I was immediately struck by her openness and enthusiasm and her desire to do something just a little different…I just knew the session was going to be awesome! I was so spot on…it was AWESOME!

Talk about a good sport…it was about 35 degrees outside when we finally met for the session (we had to wait for the baby bump to grow!) and Meghan didn’t flinch for a second. She climbed through prickly bushes, bared the belly in the cold, and was laughing and joking the whole time! Her husband, Justin, was so protective and adoring…have I mentioned how much I LOVE that my job throws me together with amazing people who are totally in love and make my heart melt? I had SUCH a fantastic time with these guys…thank you SO SO much, Meghan and Justin!!

Check out their slideshow here!

Can’t wait to meet the little man! Thanks again, you guys!!

I can’t even begin to have words adequate to the task of conveying HOW MUCH FUN I had at this session! It’s not everyday that a photographer finds people willing to play around outside for hours when the temperature is hovering around 30 degrees, much less soon-to-be Moms willing to bare their beautiful bellies! But as I’ve said a million times…I have the best clients EVER, so perhaps I shouldn’t have been at all surprised to find Meghan and Justin full of adventurous spirit and willing to try anything!

I can’t wait to show you the rest, but for now, here’s a little appetizer!!! 🙂

I love morning light. There is just something magical to me about the way the dew sparkles and there is always a slight mist in the air as the sleepiness of the night is burned away by the rising sun. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when Nicollette and Shawn agreed to meet with me for their maternity photography at six o’clock AM on a Saturday morning!! We had such an amazing session…the love between Nicollette and Shawn outshines even the dew in the morning light! I was so moved by the way they interacted, Shawn protective and enfolding, Nicollette devoted and reassuring. Their dynamic was just beautiful to witness and to photograph and I feel so privileged to be a part of their adventure!
