Leah and Jon are such a sweet couple! I had so much fun shooting these maternity portraits for them back in September. Since it was the very end of summer, we started out with Leah in a summery outfit and moved into more fall looks. And because she had a lumberjack themed baby shower for her baby Jack, she added in a some plaid to her looks.
Because I’m so behind in blogging their little boy is already here and I already shot his newborn portraits. He was such a beautiful little boy! And a perfect sleeper for me! I can’t wait to share those portraits soon!
And a special thank you to Sara of Beauty Hairem for the beautiful hair & makeup styling!
I absolutely love shooting maternity portraits, and it’s always a treat to get to photograph second (or third or fourth!) pregnancies. It makes me so happy to get to include older siblings in capturing the excitement of waiting for a new little one to join the family.
I photographed big brother Joey through his entire first year and now I have the honor of photographing his little sister’s first year too!
Little sister Savannah Grace arrived earlier this week! I can’t wait to meet her for her newborn portraits!
Kristy’s maternity session for her daughter, her very first baby, was my first professional portrait session. I was an attorney at the time, and photography had been my hobby since I was a teenager, but since my daughter was born I had been toying with the idea of starting a photography business. Kristy and I have been friends since we were in college together, so I was at her baby shower when she mentioned that she hadn’t had any maternity portraits taken. So I offered to shoot them, and their newborn portraits for them. And to my absolute delight, they said yes! They were the first family that trusted me to capture important memories for them, and I have been shooting their family portraits ever since. So when I heard that Kristy was expecting baby number three, I knew that I had to use their family for the film I was having made for my new website. It was such a special project for me and I just had to use my most special family for it.
The amazing filmmakers Kelly & Paul, from 618 Studios, followed me on Kristy’s maternity shoot, so you could get a little behind the scenes peek at a shoot with me. The film that they created is just beautiful. They are so incredibly talented and so much fun to work with! I couldn’t be happier with what they created for me!
You can see the film over on the new front page of the website, but I also included it down below at the end of this post. So first, enjoy Kristy’s gorgeous family maternity portraits.
Now watch the film!
Thank you so much Kristy, Andrew, Audrey, Anderson, and Baby Number Three, for your friendship, for always trusting in and support my dream, and for being a part of this film! Love you guys!
p.s. Did you catch the cameo by my talented hair & makeup artist Sara of Beauty Hairem?! Thank you Sara for being in the film and making both Kristy & I look beautiful, and for always making my clients feel wonderful and look amazing!
