Hi friends! It’s been awhile. I’m excited to share this maternity session with you today…I love this family! Their baby girl has since been born and we have done newborn photos, which I’ll share at a later date. But I started with Zach and Kirsten back when they were pregnant with their first baby boy, and have documented them every step of the way. It was so exciting to hear that they were having a girl after two boys and Kirsten couldn’t have been glowing more for her belly photos. We had such a fun evening and captured lots of fun candid moments for them during their last session as a family of four!
Things have been crazy and this blog hasn’t been getting much attention lately! But I had some time to add a post today. This was one of my coooooooolllldest sessions of the year. Tarannum and Prasad drove down from KC for their belly session, and I believe it was around 25 degrees outside. Tarannum had thermals and boots under her dress but Prasad was in short sleeves! Ha! They have since had their sweet baby boy and I love his newborn photos…those will be posted here at some point!
I took Sara and Aaron’s engagement photos a few years back, so I was really excited to hear from Sara again when she contacted me to tell me she was pregnant! We did a quick Homestead Session to announce their happy news, and Sara brought lots of cute accessories. We are doing her maternity session next week, and I can’t wait to see that bump!
I met Kirstyn and Craig for the first time back in December at their maternity session! Even though the leaves had all fallen off the trees and it was an overcast day, we found a gorgeous spot and I LOVE how these turned out! They are super laid back and easy to get to know. Their sweet baby girl was born in January…so stay tuned for her newborn session post! She is DARLING!
Val is my dear friend and when I heard she and her hubby were expecting their third baby, I was BEYOND excited! That baby girl has since been born and is darling, but before her arrival, we were able to sneak in a little maternity session. I was scrambling to find some fall color, as most of the trees had already shed their leaves at this point. But we found a pretty spot with lots of orange and it was great. It was definitely cold for these photos, so we made the session short and sweet. I’ll (hopefully) catch up (some day) and share the photos from baby Aurora’s newborn session soon!
ALSO…just for fun, click here for Val’s maternity session with her first baby, Isabella.
These two beautiful people added to their family at the end of December, making it an even 4 kids! They totally don’t look like the parents of 4 kids, do they? But before we did newborn photos, we were able to capture Alex’s belly, and we had a gorgeous afternoon/evening with pretty light! We started out in a nearby small town and then finished up out here at my place. Congrats to the family of 6!
Jayme is the most gorgeous expectant momma! This was the first session of September that really gave me the fall vibes out here at the homestead, and I was loving it! Big bro wasn’t too excited about having photos taken, but I think we won him over. The good thing about maternity photos is that if big siblings need a break, you can always focus on just momma for a bit! Thanks for having me take these Jayme…your baby girl is going to be gorgeous!
Kayla and I met early this year when she took a camera class from me. We had an awesome day talking about everything under the sun. I was so excited when she contacted me to tell me that she and her hubby were expecting! We took maternity photos a few weeks back, and she’s so tiny that I kept having to tell her to stick out her belly, haha! I’m so happy for them, and can’t wait for newborn photos in November!
We were debating all day about whether or not to go forward with Rachel and Greg’s session a few weeks ago. It had been rainy on and off, plus overcast and dark. But they were willing to be adventurous, and my schedule is nuts, so we decided to go ahead and WOWZA I’m so glad we did! I stopped on the way and got a black umbrella to use. It sprinkled on us right at the beginning so we got to use the umbrella (see the first photo below), but then stayed pretty dry the rest of the time. I love the overcast light we had this evening, and how green everything was next to Rachel’s pop of color in her pink dress. So excited to meet and photograph this baby next month!
Happy to finally announce this and to share my awesome husband’s talents with the world! 🙂
It’s been so great to have Adam switch careers to doing video full time. He’s excited, passionate, and eager to keep making films that matter, and this is the next step in that direction!
