“Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were here an hour I would die for you. This is the miracle of Mother’s Love.” – Maureen Hawkins

Kari Webb Photography captured the miracle of mother’s love with this beautiful maternity family photography session and we know you will enjoy the beauty of the love captured here as much as we have.

What We Love:

Kari: I’ve know Julie and Sam for 5 years, and have loved watching their relationship grow.  I got to see them get married, and watch their family grow.  They are now expecting their 2nd child, and wanted to capture the final days as a family of 3.  I was honored to take them to one of my favorite local spots, and we were lucky to have such amazing light that day!  One of the things that made this session so much fun is the unpredictability of this firecracker of a toddler.  Little Emily was way more interested in running free and playing with sticks and leaves, then holding still for a photo. But every so often, she would run back to mama, and give that belly a kiss.  She is going to make such a great big sister.

Lisa and Rachel: We love that this family chose a family session to celebrate new baby!!  We love the simplicity and sun flare from this session.  The outfits selected worked perfectly with the shoot location and we could go on and on about this location! What a gorgeous spot with perfect amounts of sun flare and open shade.  And what can we say about that little girl, sorry baby in the tummy but you might have a show stealer!!

Camera: Canon 5dmIII
Lens: Canon 85mm 1.8
