Hey Little Mama

This maternity session was so much fun. I learned something from it, though. I’ll never tell someone that I can get a maternity session done in two hours. All of them have been four hours long!

This new mama-to-be had such great clothing choices, we had to try all of them. Just check out that Marylin Monroe dress. Beautiful! There’s even a pair of old cowboy boots in the outdoor photos. I just loved it.

I wish you both the best for a safe and quick delivery of your new baby girl!

Double Trouble

I got an email from this lovely mama-to-be, and I was so excited to hear that she is pregnant with twins. I’ve photographed twins before, but I’ve never had a maternity session with twins before.

It’s always interesting to learn about my new clients, and this was no exception. Although mom is absolutely gorgeous, she said that a friend or relative told her that she had to have a maternity session. It’s not something that commonly happens in this part of the country due to our conservative nature. But I’m so glad that she decided to go through with it. While you are pregnant, you wonder if it will ever end. But when your baby (or babies) celebrate their third birthday, you try and try to remember all of those precious first moments. It’s more difficult than you think.

Mom really wanted to capture some candid casual moments, and dad had this great idea to get out his Porche book. I was so thrilled with the result. We were laughing hysterically at the time!

And finally, this storyboard sums up my session with this loving, adoring couple. It was a blast meeting you and working with you. I wish you all the best and a fast, safe delivery welcoming your brand new girls into the world.

Heaven’s blessings

These are dear college friends of me and my husband.  They have been through a lot, and this little girl is an answered prayer to say the least.  We are so happy for them and their new little one that was born a few days after these photos were taken.  Congratulations!

Meeker, here we come!

This is my other buddy that came to Oklahoma over the holidays.  All three of us girls studied engineering at Oklahoma State, so we’ve shared quite a bit with each other.  This time, I got to share in documenting her second pregnancy and her daughter’s December birthday.  I can’t believe how much she’s grown since I saw her last (at six months!).  This session was extra special because it was my first session here in Meeker.  I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it is here even in the dead of winter.  Enjoy!

Before the move

I swear, I get all the luck sometimes. These photos are from my most recent maternity shoot, and mom was a complete joy to photograph. The hardest thing about it was trying to find clothes and poses that made her look more pregnant, if you can believe it.

Since mom said that she enjoyed art, I switched up my usual editing style and tried a couple of new things. I really had fun, and who knows? Maybe I’ll have some newborn shots to post for her soon.
