Bumps are in Bloom!!!!

Spring flowers aren’t the only thing blooming right now… It has been a busy season for baby bumps!

Maternity photos are a hot new trend for expecting moms. It’s all about accentuating and showing off your beautiful changing body in the most creative and fun way possible.

Celebrate and commemorate your bump

These photos are now being used for announcements with fun tag lines like “Ready to Pop!” while mom holds her belly and blows bubble gum.

Or having other children holding fun signs announcing that they will be a big brother or sister.

There is so much room for ideas and creativity. Whether you use these photos as an announcement, an invitation, or placed in a decorative frame, they become a beautiful memory for you and your family.

Your other children will love looking back on these as they get older! I only wish I had photos of my mom while she was carrying me in her belly.

A dozen babies on the way

In just days now, I will be expecting my second child. But, my bump is not alone! Ten of my dear friends are currently pregnant, and two of my sisters are expecting their second child, too. That’s a dozen babies! Needless to say it’s a special time for all of us.

I have had the distinct pleasure of photographing some of these women and their families during life’s biggest milestones. Engagements, weddings (even boudoir!)… it’s been such an amazing adventure to share. I’m so thankful that I get to take some memorable shots of their baby bumps too.


These recent shoots have been so wonderfully inspiring and I feel so blessed to have been the one to take these photos. Pregnant mothers are amazing and I am so lucky to spend time with these ladies and their growing families. Enjoy!

Go Glam for Holiday Photo Shoots

Who says red and green, hats and scarves, are the only colors and accessories allowed in family Christmas photos?

Why not go glam?

This fun family took my advice to “go glam” for their Christmas shoot. They gave me full creative input on colors and ideas for what each family member should wear.

Changing up the cookie cutter concept

Instead of the Christmas-cardish “flannel shirts and hiking boots at the tree farm,” we changed up the concept completely. The family wore colors and outfits they wouldn’t normally wear to a tree farm. The result was gorgeous – outdoorsy, timeless portraits that can be given as gifts year-round or framed and permanently displayed in their home.
