Whether you’re having your first baby or third, maternity sessions are magical. There is nothing that compares to the precious moments while you are carrying your baby. Capturing those moments before your baby’s arrival is one of my favorite things in the world and such a beautiful experience. While we all experience pregnancy differently, one thing is certain; when your baby enters the world everything was worth it.  

 

 

I have had the honor of capturing this family of 4, soon to be 5, during Christmas time and then shortly after I got to do a motherhood session with the girls. And if I’ve learned anything from my time with them it is that the girls are their center, and this is one lucky baby. And as lucky as this baby is, I feel pretty lucky myself to get to be the one to provide maternity services for my past, present and future clients.  I know that you may not feel like being in front of a camera with all of the body changes you are experiencing but trust me, with the right dress and angles, you will look at your photos and think “I’ve never looked better”. And that is my goal for you, aside from capturing the intimacy of your pregnancy of course.  

I had so much fun getting these up-close photos of Helen and Nick. And the girls were just too cute in their matching dresses. I love everything about the colors Helen chose for her maternity session. And even though the girls were a tough crowd and made me work for their smiles, it was so nice to see them again and document their growth since the last time I had them in front of my camera.

Helen and Nick, 


You have such a beautiful family and it is about to get even better. I am so excited for you and the girls. You both handle parenthood so well and Helen, you are stunning. I am so happy that I got to capture these moments for you guys before baby’s arrival.
