It’s so hard to believe this little girl is 1 year old already! It wasn’t that long ago that I was taking her newborn photos and oohing and aahing over her thick dark hair… what a difference a year makes!

This little man was born to my friends Wendy and Steve on my son’s birthday!  Kaysen slept like a champ but really reaalllly didn’t want me to move his hands or arms! Regardless, we got some gorgeous shots of him and I can’t wait to get the 20×30 canvas his mommy and daddy ordered in! It’s going to be beautiful!2015-01-11_0015PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0016PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0017PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0018PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0019PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0020PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0021PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0022PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0023PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0024PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0025PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0026PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0027PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0028PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0029PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0030PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0031PINIMAGE

    Mary - What a beautiful session. I love how you keep things simple and classy. These will be timeless. What a cute baby too!ReplyCancel

The big question I get asked about maternity sessions is “what in the world do I wear?” My answer is, a maternity gown! I have a few in studio, including this beautiful soft pink one that Ciera totally rocked during her session! Huge thanks to my sister in law, Maureen, for making it! You’ve got a beautiful baby in that belly… show it off!

You can also wear your maternity pants and a fitted top, like Ciera did. That works great too!

I’m so excited for Ciera and Troy. They are going to be welcoming their little girl into the world any day now and I think her mommy and daddy are SO ready to meet her! I can tell this is going to be one super adored and loved little baby!2015-01-11_0001PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0002PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0003PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0004PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0005PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0006PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0007PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0008PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0009PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0010PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0011PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0012PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0013PINIMAGE2015-01-11_0014PINIMAGE

    mary - Wow I love the maternity dresses. Beautiful mama-to-be too. Great pictures as usual :)ReplyCancel

Abby’s session turned out SO fabulous!

Funny story, the night before her shoot I put the kids to bed and ended up falling asleep. I woke up around 3 a.m. and realized “AHHH! I never made her skirt!”

So there I was, 3 a.m., with 40 yards of tulle on my kitchen table, scissors in hand, creating the skirt for Abby. I can laugh about it now, but at the time it wasn’t so funny. I was TIRED!

Also, with  my mother in law’s help, I tea stained the corset she wore. I borrowed the vintage hat, which belonged to my husband’s grandmother.

I am beyond pleased with her session!

These two little ones are a dream to photograph. Every single image was one I immediately adored and ever since I met Eden, I’ve thought she was the most beautiful little girl!
