If you’re a regular on this blog, then you just might recognize this family. In fact, I don’t think I even have all their sessions blogged.

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing them for several years now. I met them when they were a family of two, almost three. Since then, I’ve gotten to know them pretty well. Their likes, dislikes, style overall personality. To be honest, whenever they schedule a new session, I get a little nervous about keeping our session fresh and making sure they are pleased with the end result. So when mom called me and told me she was expecting again (squeeee!) and we began talking about this particular session, we were both at a loss for where we would shoot. Really, the location shouldn’t matter too much. This maternity session should be all about mom and the joy this family is feeling right now. But I thought about it a little and we ended up at a place that we talked about way back when we first met but never used. The particular spot we used at this location is a somewhere my husband and I like to frequent and I am so pleased that everything worked out for us that afternoon.

I know them enough now that I can say that these photos are so them, modern yet warm and full of joy. I am so happy we were able to collaborate like this:

And of course, there was also this, which is how we ended our afternoon 😀


I adore this family and I can’t wait to meet their new little guy! If he’s anything like his big brother, there is going to be a whole lot more cuteness and personality on this blog!

Congrats again, S + J!
