maternity session

capturing the beauty of pregnancy, a maternity session

I happen to think that pregnancy is beautiful. The fact that as women our bodies can create and birth another life is absolutely incredible. Not everyone is a pregnancy unicorn, loving every minute, but I think we can all agree that it is an amazing process. And so when I am hired for a lifestyle maternity session, I do my very best to capture the beauty. There is beauty in the new shape a woman's body takes, in the anticipation, in the love shared between parents. 

With Britt and Steve, there was such an ease about them. They are so clearly in love, and ready to meet their baby boy. I'm excited to meet him, too!

Because this mama will soon be having this sweet boy, I figured I'd start with her session from this past fall. (waaaaaay behind on posting, obviously) You may remember this gorgeous mama from this session or this one. Well, she killed it again with this last baby bump.

We met up on a misty morning and made some magic. Julie, who is one of the most gorgeous mamas I know, is always down for a little adventure. We waded in the creek, and then went for a little time indoors. Little man stole the show a couple of times, but he's so dang cute he's allowed. I cannot wait to meet this baby boy!
