You don't have to be tattooed, you just have to be awesome.

I had the pleasure of meeting Baby B’s parents for a maternity session a few weeks back. I actually love when I get to meet the parents for a maternity session and then see them just a few short weeks later as parents. What a wild thing to change so much in such a short time – becoming a parent adds so many new dimensions so quickly!

I had such a great time getting to know her parents, so it was a treat to see them with Little Miss B. She is an angel. I had so much fun working with her!


I love when I get to try out new props or new poses – this little sweetie was the best because she was up for just about anything!

I love this one because I love her little piggie toes peeking out. Them being flipped is just a bonus!

This one was really special. This bear was her daddy’s bear when he was a little boy. Since it was so big, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do with it at first. I mulled it over, and I almost thought I’d have her lay on it, like, bearskin-rug-in-front-of-a-roaring-fire style just to be silly, but then this came to me and I was IN. LOVE. So perfect. Plus, it sort of gave me the analogy of her daddy protecting her, because it’s her daddy’s bear. Ok, don’t make my eyes get all leaky on me over here! :)

And another one. I don’t know what it is that I love so much about baby and parent photos. Well, yes I do. It’s because I’m a parent and I always relate to how you feel once you have that little baby and you know that you would do anything for them and that they are your whole world and boy you are freaking tired and overwhelmed but nothing has ever felt quite this amazing. Phew. At least that’s how I felt. So, this one below is a favorite from this session.

Back wrinkles. Need I say more? I didn’t think so.
