Maternity sessions are so fun! Maybe because for once, I am not the one pregnant? 🙂
No, really, all teasing aside…….there is such beauty to be captured in these rounded bellies, full of new life, new beginnings!
I have photographed 3 that have gone un-shared for months now, due to the overwhelming amount of good food being eaten and then posted on here!!
Growing Family #1 are near and dear to our hearts, Dale went to school with Jamie and has gotten close with Mike through Men’s Encounter and morning work outs at the gym. These were taken this fall.
Growing Family #2 was for a Christmas Card announcement for a couple we teasingly call our Tree Hugger Friends. Momma-to-Be, Kalene wasn’t showing yet, so we got creative with their announcement.
Maternity Session number 3 has been something I have only dreamed of, a snowy maternity shoot! I prayed SO hard for snow BEFORE her baby was due, and wouldn’t you know, the weather warmed up to 75 just a few days before this! I about gave up hope, but it came, one day and one day only….I teasingly told Dale it was just for me!!! Thanks, Lord! 🙂
By the time we got to shoot, all the snow was melted from the trees, but thankfully the ground was still covered. I am glad Mandy braved the cold to do this though, because it was gone a few hours later!
