Thank you to Lemonade & Lenses magazine for publishing my article Creating Beautiful, Feminine Portraits in their January 2015 Maternity photography issue.

Photographing maternity sessions has become a passion of mine. Taking the time to help boost an expecting mother’s confidence through embracing her femininity has been such a rewarding experience both for my clients and myself. Pregnancy is a time of anticipation and change, and it is well worth celebrating.

I’m so honored to have been invited once again to take part in this beautiful publication.

    kari - Congratulations!!! This is very well deserved!

Pregnancy looks amazing on this gorgeous soon-to-be mother of twins! Mandi is due in April with two baby girls, and she looked absolutely stunning for her maternity portraits. She and her partner Chris are adorable together … I can’t wait to meet them again as parents in April!

    Vikki - Beautiful! <3

After the 2014 Letters to My Daughters blog circle ended, I knew I wanted to have another personal photography project to work on for the new year. Luckily, some like-minded friends and I came together with a new project for 2015. We’re calling our collaboration The Motherhood Collective, and the idea is to actually get INTO the photographs with our children.

Needless to say, this will force me out of my comfort zone.

For this month, I thought we’d go with a simple portrait. Just us.

And just one of the two of you, because that’s what I do…you are my heart.

    Megan - I loved your letters from last year. Your girls are so sweet!

I was so excited to meet this brand new baby girl yesterday! Her mama’s maternity portraits are still a top favorite of mine, and I just knew we’d have a great newborn session as well. And Raeya was as sweet as could be, just quiet and calm and sleepy at just the right times.

So just a little preview from this pretty girl’s session for now!

    Anna - Love, love this image. Can’t wait to see the rest.

    Christy Johnson - Thank you, Anna! There are lots of great images, can’t wait to share more!

Brody is quite possibly the sweetest one-year old I’ve ever met! He came into the studio for a portrait session yesterday, and he was just calm and collected the whole time. Those dark brown eyes just melt me, and that smile, oh my goodness! His mom and dad are going to have a hard time telling him no for anything!

Just a quick peek for mommy and daddy!
