I met up with the Y family a few weeks ago to do a maternity session before their new baby arrives. Maternity sessions have always been on the top of my favorites list. There’s so much joy and anticipation when a family is expecting a new addition. I first photographed the Y family a couple years ago and it’s been so fun watching their son grow and now watching their whole family grow. And, can I just say, I really treasure families that value maternity photos. I didn’t take any professional photos during my first two pregnancies, but when I was pregnant with our third baby I asked a very sweet and gifted photographer friend to capture images of this fleeting time in our family’s life. Looking back at the images from my own maternity session, I realize how important it is and I’m SO thankful that I have those photos to cherish. In fact, as I type this, I’m staring at 3 gigantic canvases from that session. Such treasures my friends!

And I couldn’t help but include these last few. We were fininshing up with our final images on the bridge and this was supposed to be a photo of just mom by herself. As I was snapping away I caught a flash of blue out of the corner of my eye. I got a good laugh out of these when I saw them. As a mom of three boys myself, I can absolutely relate to moments like these. : )
