Elizabeth's Maternity Session

Elizabeth ("Liz") and her husband, Lawrence are welcoming their second baby girl in September. Their first daughter, Emmylou, will be turning five soon and is so excited to be a big sister! Harper (my daughter) and Emmylou actually go to preschool together, which is how Liz heard about my photography business!

We decided to go to Mount Falcon in Morrison, Colorado for a sunset session. I cannot stress enough how gorgeous and worthwhile it is to have photos taken the hour before the sun sets. The lighting and colors cannot be replicated at any other time of day. So even if you need to keep your kiddos up past their bedtime, IT'S WORTH IT!

Liz liked more posed photos while her husband enjoyed more of a candid approach. We incorporated both styles into her session and I could not be more thrilled with the results. Emmylou did a fantastic job the entire time, which is not the case for all children. I totally get how hard it is for kids to listen and be told what to do for an hour. As an anxious parent myself, I try to advise the parents to relax and just go with the flow when their kiddo isn't cooperating. We will still get awesome photos! However, Emmylou was seriously one of the best kids I have ever worked with, so no problem there!

Here are some of my favorites from their session. I can't wait to meet their baby girl in a few months!


Natalie's Maternity Session

Natalie and her husband are expecting their first baby, a girl, within the next few weeks! Natalie wanted to do a lifestyle session in her home, which I LOVE! We also went around her neighborhood to capture some of the blooming trees. I can't wait to hear of baby's arrival and the name they choose (it's between Olivia and Audrey...awwww!!). Here are some of my favorites from this session: 

Amanda's Maternity Session

Amanda contacted me when she was about eight months pregnant to do her maternity photos. I got her in right away, not wanting to risk her going into labor early and missing this opportunity! Luckily, baby stayed put so we could capture some gorgeous belly photos. It was raining that day, but as  told Amanda, cloudy skies make for some great photos! I got Amanda a real floral crown from Fluorescence Flowers, and it turned out amazing!

Amanda has one son already, who is a talkative and sweet toddler. She is expecting her second son at the end of April. Check out her session below, which included a mixture of both outdoor and an indoor/intimate feel. 



Maternity in the Mountains

When Megan contacted me to do her maternity photos, she requested to do them in the mountains. I don't often make the trek out west, but when I do I am reminded of how beautiful and worthwhile it is! We met in Boulder on a very cold and windy (those two combined are the worst!) December day, but Megan, her husband, and her son were troopers! We did them just in time too, because baby girl Kambria (pronounced "kame-bria") arrived a few weeks later! I am so excited to share these images with you.
