It is a little unbelievable when I stop and count the number of years it has been since I first met Bre. And even then I am not sure I have the number quite right, but I do know it is something like 12! I have had the opportunity to coach this sweet girl as a really young sideline cheerleader and in more recent years in high school field hockey. She has always been and still is a little spitfire. This is a girl who can sometimes seem unsure of herself, but always knows exactly what she wants to say and never has a problem speaking her mind and advocating for what she wants/needs. Whether she ever expected motherhood to come so early in her life or not, there is no doubt in my mind that if her little girl inherits any of Bre’s personality, the rest of the world is in for a wild ride

After weeks of emailing back and forth with Serena, I was so excited to finally get to meet her and Corey just a few days ago. Not only was this couple super sweet and up for a little hike through the arboretum, Serena has the most perfect baby bump ever! I am so excited for these two and cannot wait to meet baby Kai in just another month:)

I cannot even begin to tell you how fun it was to shoot this gorgeous mama’s maternity session at the beach. After a drizzly rainy two days of weather, we drove as the last bits of rain continued to fall. And as we stepped onto the beach, skies began to clear. After all the struggles this sweet mama has gone through, the clearing of gray skies as she stepped onto the beach can only be sign of what’s to come for her and her little boy. Liv, you are such an amazing human being and I cannot wait to watch you become the amazing momma that I have no doubt you will be <3livanah maternity 3 1024x505 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 4 1024x708 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 5 1024x505 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 7 1024x708 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 9 1024x708 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 10 1024x773 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 1024x708 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography

 

I could not be any happier for this expecting momma and her hubs. And I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned to Brittany on multiple occasions how much I could not wait for her to have a baby! She has coached in our youth cheering program right by my side for at least five years now and if her adoration and support are any inclination as to what kind of parent she will be….well….she is going to be AMAZING! And speaking of amazing, Britt and Mike completely rocked their beach maternity session <3

I can’t remember the last time I did an in studio maternity session and I have to admit, I was a little nervous. But all fears subsided when this beautiful mama to be and her own pretty mama arrived. Amanda is such a sweet girl and so laid back that it was easy to forget I was actually working. And with just two weeks left until her due date, I get to see her again real soon;)  Here are a few of my faves!

After weeks of emails back and forth planning for Erica’s maternity session, something about this sweet girl finally clicked. Turns out my mom used to babysit her when she was little, and she is just as fun now as she was way back then:)  It is a bit surreal that so much time has passed and she is now expecting a little one of her own, but there is no doubt in my mind that she will be an amazing mom. And I’m going to guess that Heath is going to be a pretty fun dad too!  Here are a few favorites from their session…

Just a few months ago, Cynthia contacted me to inquire about shooting her maternity session. Of course, this wasn’t too long after she had visited the studio to surprise her hubby with a boudoir session…which she totally rocked….while completely unaware she was already pregnant! I was over the moon excited for Cynthia and Nick and the ocean breeze was perfect for their beach session and the new maternity gown I had just ordered <3

This family has been super patiently waiting for this sneak peek, and I am so excited to finally be posting it! The night of their session, was the first time meeting Christine, her boys and her adorable baby bump and it didn’t take long to feel like we were old friends. Which was good, because little Zachary wanted nothing at all to do with me or my camera! So, we turned our focus to the maternity portion of the session and managed to sneak in a few family shots here and there. And yes, I even managed to get a few of my least biggest fan and his very handsome eyes;)

Ashley: expecting

January 3, 2013

Here we are in a brand new year with our hearts and minds full of visions of fresh starts and blank slates…and my head is spinning like crazy. I have so many ideas and goals swimming around in there, that sometimes I feel like my poor head is going to explode.  Thankfully, all that chaos isn’t painful like a headache, but aching with the urge to share a million new things I want for myself, my family and business in this new year. And thankfully,in the midst all the hoopla in this brain of mine, I still have the little voice telling me it’s okay to take one thing at a time…and furthermore, that just might be the only way I will ever make sense of it all and eventually be able to share with you. I suppose that is my resolution for this year: one thing at a time. And for me it only makes sense that the first thing I share with you this year is the meat and potatoes of my business and what I love to do….photography. And how fitting for this to be a session that revolves all around new beginnings, with the freshest start any of us could ever have: new life.

I first met Ashley a little less than a year ago when her husband coached my little guy in Tee-ball. Turns out my Colby and her Peyton are besties on their bus rides to school and when they see each other at recess. Not to mention, the house fills with screeches of laughter and tales of superheroes during playdates. Now Peyton is patiently waiting for his first ever sibling, and I could not be happier for this little family. Just a few more weeks and little brother, Zachary, will be making his own special mark on this world <3
