Hmm, pink or blue?

Yep, you got it — Pink OR Blue??!!??!!  As of Wednesday mom & dad had no clue as to their new arrival BUT Saturday was the big ultrasound.  Mom was afraid dad wouldn’t be able to resist knowing {pssstt dad, pssstt, don’t do it, don’t do it}!  I, of course, want to help and suggest a name that would work either way:  SANDY!  Yes, yes, I know you think it a great idea too!  😉


And, because I can’t post just one photo ~


Beautiful Bump

Jennifer has one of the prettiest bumps I’ve seen.  And, what made her maternity session even better?  Dad had no clue of the special gift she was giving to him with these intimate images to capture the beauty of her body.  As moms we should take time to remember the incredible change, even when blessed with “tiger stripes” as I was {every mom should take time to read this article}.maternity_2014-fmaternity_2014-e

Seen me before?

If you are a frequent visitor to the site or our Facebook page you’ll recognize this lovely belly ~

Bringing it together ~

When mom brought in this wonderful material — yes, just very large pieces of material — she made it into a lovely dress. So bringing it back to utilize for her son’s newborn session as a drape was a great way to bring it together. I’m looking forward to seeing how it is displayed in his nursery.

Arriving soon

I absolutely love the meaning behind this image — the airplane is actually from mom and dad’s wedding cake and now their little one is about to have his own airplane themed nursery! During the consultation for maternity sessions I ask mom if she has anything special she’d like to bring — family heirlooms, nursery blanket, stuffed animals, etc. And, when Mrs A showed up she did not disappoint. She brought the blanket that she’d used as a baby, her mom lovely mailed it to her to use for her little one. Then, the extra treat of the airplane from the wedding along with all the other airplanes dad (yes, Nick I’m talking about you) brought and lovely had them landing on mom’s belly… it was cute and also special to see just how in love this man is with his beautiful wife and their son. So, without, further reminiscing from me, enjoy your sneak peek!
