Ericka is one of my dearest friends! We’ve been praying for a baby in her arms for several years!

And like most things in life – they come in their own time – when you least expect it!

It’s a GIRL!

Another sweet girl!

Ericka – you are strong. You are beautiful. You are loved. I cannot WAIT to see this baby’s face! I LOVE YOU!

Kelly & Dane are such amazing people!

I’m so thankful that what started out as “can you take our pictures” turned into a great friendship!

Sometimes a mini-session is all you need!

Stay tuned for their newborn session!

Lauren and Dan have been in front my camera for 5 years! It’s such an honor to stay with families while they grow!

COUSINS!

For their first two children – they decided to wait till the babies were born to find out what they were having!

This time though – they decided to find out ahead of time! They said they prefer the waiting!

Isn’t she just GORGEOUS!

I happen to think that pregnancy is absolutely BEAUTIFUL – but Lauren is exceptionally BEAUTIFUL throughout her pregnancies!

Stay tuned for their newborn session!

BABY ON THE WAY

Aszur and I met – oh my word – before I was pregnant with Fitzy – so I think in 2009!? Is that right Aszur? That seems way too long!

She had her third child 6 weeks after I had my first – and she let me photograph that experience! My first one!

She was starting out with photography and we clicked and became fast friends!

They built their dream home. The five of them. Aszur and the boys. And while I remember her saying that she was pretty sure they were a 3 kiddo family – she always just had this longing in her eyes. In her heart. She’s a great momma. An inspiring wife. And so they took a chance. And asked God if they were done. Or not. They were not. And MUCH to her surprise – a girl!

GORGEOUS!!!!!

That little guy! What a ham!

OH MY HEART! I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!

Aszur – you are such a beautiful soul! I am so thankful that we met!

And while we don’ see each other on a regular basis – it doesn’t matter. There is still love and friendship when we do!

You won’t want to miss her HOME birth! That will be featured in a few weeks!

Miranda has been a client for FIVE years! The type of client that has become a friend. A friend that texts. That checks in. That loves.

Her second little guy came into the world a little early. It was a scary whirlwind – but he’s here and safe and in their arms!

SWOON! Look at those momma gazes!

Their FIRST photos as a family of four! You guys – such an honor to give you these moments!

LOVE LOVE LOVE that shot!

Miranda & Brooks – thank you SO much for this absolute honor! You guys are AWESOME!

Miranda – I don’t say this lightly – you are one of the most INCREDIBLE mommas I’ve ever witnessed!

You love your babies with a fierce yet tender passion! You are an inspiration!

BIRTH

My friend Sierra asked if I would capture the birth of their 4th child – their 1st girl!

I was so honored and excited! She was due mid-January and we were praying that snow wouldn’t be an issue!

Her mom called me around 6:45 on Sunday the 10th – letting me know that they were heading to the hospital (an hour away) for the night – snow and ice was in the forecast and they wanted to be prepared. I left at 7 – ready for a long night sleeping on lobby couches. As I pulled off the exit from the highway – her mom called again – asking where I was. She was 9 cm and getting ready. WHAT!

I made it to the room at 8 – and that sweet baby girl was born at 8:30 after just a few beautiful pushes!

(You won’t see all the photos in this blog post – but you will still see beautiful ones!)

I mean seriously – that chubby little face!

Sierra & Jose – it’s such a beautiful thing to witness!

Thank you SO MUCH – from the bottom of my heart – for asking me to photograph Rosa’s birth – but more than that – for asking me to be there.

There’s something so miraculous about watching someone take their first breath. Thank you.

WAITING ON ROSA

My friend Sierra is a fantastic friend. She’s also a great momma and wife. She’s honest and transparent.

She has quite the story and she’s an inspiration to experience the beauty from pain.

She has three wonderful boys – and will add a little girl – Rosa!

I’ve had this dress on hand for a few years. I’ve used it in a session already and wore it to the PA Renaissance Faire this year!

I’ve always had a vision to photograph a pregnant momma – in the snow – in this dress.

Sierra’s due date was quickly approaching – we couldn’t wait for the possibility of snow.

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

OH MY! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that last shot!!

Sierra – I am so thankful that you’re in my life! I LOVE YOU!

Stay tuned for her birth and newborn sessions!!

I met with Jennifer and her family on a VERY chilly day! But we made it work!

On a side note – I am fully aware that photographing on tracks is not legal or safe. These tracks are purely decorative and lead to nothing – safe.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE those shots!

And – just to show you that it’s not always perfect!

Jennifer – thank you so much for asking me to photograph this BEAUTIFUL time in your lives!
