Archive for 'Maternity'


I can officially say that this maternity session was my most “rescheduled” session EVER. I think we rescheduled this session due to rain, 4 times? It was crazy! But I think that the wait was well worth it! We traveled up to their family’s land, where they plan to build there “forever” home in the near future. I am a little jealous, it was just GORGEOUS up there! And so rich with their own family’s history – all the way back from 1918. I just love that. I am a sucker for nostalgia 🙂

And this session was FULL of it! This adorable blue and green chair was Shelby’s grandparents, and the stick horse was Mom’s when she was a little girl, and the last images were taken on top of a cliff, overlooking the red river where the two of them got engaged!

The 3 of us had so much fun during their session, and good thing we have so much fun together, because I will be photographing this little guy’s birth ANY TIME NOW, and then his newborns a week after that!

Hope you guys don’t get tired of me! We’re going to be spending a lot of time together! 🙂

Another long time friend of mine, AND old roomate – Joli is expecting her first baby very soon! They are waiting to find out what they are having, which I love, having done that with our second baby! It was so special to be able to take these photographs for such a special person in my life. I love her to death and am very greatful for keeping in touch even though she has moved away.

Her and her hubby are going to be SUCH amazingly fun parents – these two are some of the funniest, most loving people I know. Boy or girl – one this is certain, this baby will have a fun filled childhood 🙂

And just a note on the last picture – this is how Joli told her husband they were expecting. She wrapped up a jar of Prego Spaghetti Sauce and gave it to him for Christmas.


See, I told you they were fun.


I have known Lydia for a really long time……14 years maybe? Gosh, that is crazy! And now I am photographing her as she is about to become a mommy for the very first time! We had so much fun at her session, and I had a blast shooting into the beautiful setting sun out at her Dad’s property, AND at some new spots {out at the lake}. And Lydia didn’t even fall in! Can’t wait to meet your new little man!
