Maternity sessions are officially my absolute favorite type of portrait session. They are fun and exciting and I usually get to meet the little papoose right after they're born! This beautiful lady is due to have her first baby (a GIRL!) in late October. Doesn't she look AMAZING?! We had so much fun during her session. She had some fantastic ideas and has totally embraced her beautiful figure, which I love! Here's a few of my favorites. She's already seen all of these, so they aren't really "teasers", but fun to post nonetheless. :)
This was such a fun session! This future Mommy loves anything active and although I was a little hesitant when she mentioned the rollerblading idea (34 weeks pregnant and rollerblading?!), it turned out awesome! :)
Recently, for my 30th birthday, my Dad gave me a photo album. It's a simple red album with an orange tie to hold it together (think Moleskine style, except as a photo album). He filled every slot with photos from the first 30 years of my life! From birth, to birthdays, holidays, family, childhood friends, adult friends, pets, vacations... EVERYTHING! They're not even copies. Original photos from my life. It's amazing!
My favorite pic is in the very back. It's a bad photo from when my parent's were dating. I've been on a mission to find photos of my parent's together in the 70's (or pre-1974), but haven't been able to get my hands on any... until now. They are both decked out in super hippy attire and my Mom has platinum blonde hair. My Dad's forehead is cut off, it's faded, turning yellow and the corners are a little bent, but it's really special! I want to buy a fireproof/waterproof safe just to keep this amazing gift safe...
I recently spent a couple of days in San Diego and was lucky
enough to meet this adorable baby girl! She’s already super special, but this
little sweet pea was born on the best day of the year… my birthday! How amazing
is that? Pretty awesome in my book (can you tell I love my birthday???)!
She refused to sleep while we photographed her. None of the
tricks to make a newborn sleep would work. She wasn’t fussy (or anymore fussy
than a usual newborn) or mad, just wide-awake. So we clicked away and got some
cute AWAKE newborn photos. Seriously, we only have one image with her eyes closed and
that was when she happened to get a little upset with us, but it didn’t last
long. Here are a few of my favorites. See our facebook page to see a few more!
Daniel & Kirstie are a sweet couple who were married in
an intimate ceremony with their families and close friends in Fountain Hills
this past weekend. Daniel is in the navy and stationed outside of AZ, which
made the day just a little more special. Everyone was so excited to see him HOME and also witness these two lovebirds tie the knot! Here are a few of my
favorite photos from the day.
I was so excited to hand this book over that I wrapped it all up and realized that I had forgotten to take a few quick shots to share. Not to worry, I did manage to remember, but if only you could see it in person. Not to pat myself on the back, but I totally loved this album. I couldn't wait to hand it over (and I couldn't even do it in person so I didn't get to see their reaction, but I think they're happy :))!
This lovely couple selected a 12x12 Fine Art Book with a solid black eco-leather cover.
