Beautiful maternity portraits…

for a beautiful mommy and big sister.

I had a wonderful maternity session last week with Jennifer and her sweet little girl. Julia can not wait to be a big sister; she is already so in love with her baby sis…

How sweet is she…

Jennifer is almost 38 weeks pregnant in these images. Isn’t she GORGEOUS??

I met Jennifer last year when she needed corporate head shots for her company’s website. And honestly she didn’t look any different now than she did when she wasn’t pregnant, except now she has a cute little belly.

Jennifer, thanks so much for this beautiful honor of photographing you and Julia. I am looking forward to meeting your baby and taking more beautiful portraits of you all!!! My thoughts and prayers are with you for a wonderful delivery. Congratulations!





Maternity session in the Studio…

with Alicia and Gray.

I was totally looking forward to seeing this awesome couple again. They own Manna Bros Home Improvement and I met Gray earlier this year when he came and put a bid on finishing part of my basement for my client presentation room (and may I add did a fantastic job completing the project).  I photographed their wedding and loved the vibe they have with one another and with their families.

Look at how beautiful Alicia is…

Thanks for having me catch this moment for you!

Fun maternity portraits…

2 10 2008

for Denise and her girls.

I had a ball last week photographing Denise, (who is due next week!!!) and her adorable little girls.

Denise looked fantastic and her daughters were just so stinkin’ CUTE!! and so loving toward “baby Garner”.

Denise was one of my first maternity photo shoots I had when I began my professional career as a photographer. It was few years ago when she was due with her second baby. I was still a film girl, but had just purchased my first digital camera. So her session was photographed in both film and digital. It’s only been a few years but it’s amazing to me what I’ve learned since then! That is probably the last time I ever picked up my film camera too! 😦 But I llooooovvvvveeee digital! 😀

Here are some of my favorites from our great time together…

How entirely sweet is this…

Denise, thanks for allowing me this privilege again! It was fun including the girls this time wasn’t it?!
I know Rob is going to have a ball with the 4 girls in the house!! 😉

baby Ryan!!!

I had so much fun with the Pickett’s last week. Ryan was 3 weeks old and is the third handsome boy born in this awesome family.

Here’s Mike entertaining Bailey while Angela makes sure Ryan’s belly is full for his first photo shoot!

While Ryan got dressed for his shoot, big brother Matthew showed me how the cool boys spike their hair…

Here’s Ryan admiring his beautiful mommy…

A comfortable place to be…in daddy’s arms…

I just love this one…

…and this one…

Just a few weeks before Ryan was born we took some belly shots of Angela and managed to get some family pictures in there as well.
Here are a few from that fun time together…
Photobucket

the crazy boys…one of my very favorites EVER…

A beautiful portrait of Angela just a few weeks (yes, that’s a few weeks) before giving birth…
Photobucket
…ladies, don’t hate her cause she’s beautiful. If you can believe it, she didn’t want any bare belly pictures. Mike and I gently 🙂 persuaded her. If I looked like her, I’d be running around naked for crying out loud!! You’re truly beautiful Ang, inside and out.

Thanks for allowing me this tremendous honor. What a treasure our friendship is. I’m so excited for you as parents. Your boys are fortunate and blessed to have you as parents. Keep on keepin’ on!

xoxo

…for Kelly and Skeeter. 

I was so excited to document this awesome time in Kelly and Skeeter’s life.  They will become first time parents next month to a lucky baby boy. 

Photobucket

I met the proud parents-to-be last summer when I photographed Kelly’s sister’s wedding.  I just love this entire family.   Their baby is being born into a fun, loving, warm, welcoming, generous and fantastic family. 

How beautiful is this soon-to-be mommy…

The happy couple…

Kelly and Skeeter, you were so much fun to hang out with and to photograph.  This baby is very blessed to have you as parents. Thanks so much for giving me this awesome honor.  I’m really looking forward to meeting Jackson in February.
