“Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen or to hatch.” – E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web

This session is filled with love.  Love between mom, dad, and baby; love between photographer and client; and all things WE love.  Read more to find out why!

What We Love:

Stefanie:  Ashley and I went to college together, but we didn’t actually meet until her maternity session this past February. One of my close friends referred her to me and I am so thankful that she did! This momma-to-be is gorgeous and her pregnancy glow just radiates from her. The lighting in Ashley and Steve’s home was romantic and I loved grabbing some shots there before we headed out to the park. Their dog, Duke, was such a ham and I’m pretty sure he’s a part-time dog model. I’ve always wanted to do a snowy maternity session and we lucked out when we had a snow storm a few days before the shoot. There is something about a momma-to-be, a snowy park and the golden hour that mesh together to create the perfect setting. Ashley and Steve’s personalities shined through the whole session and there was a lot of laughter between the two of them. They are such a fun couple and I am so excited for these two to become parents. They will soon be welcoming a baby boy into their family in May. I know they are going to be awesome parents and Baby Camden is going to be spoiled with lots of love and laughter.

Rachel + Lisa:  Oh my cuteness!  From nursery to couple to DOG, this session is jammed packed full of cuteness!  Our co-editor, Lisa, has a dog that looks like he could be Duke’s long lost twin so this session began to steal our hearts beginning with this doodle.  Our co-editor, Rachel, is obsessed with elephants and so this adorable nursery was the next thing to grab our hearts.  Then, you just have to look at this couple to see how beautiful they are, seriously are they professional models?  Combine all of this with a snowy day and magic happens.  Stefanie, thank you for sharing this crazy cute winter maternity session with us!
