I’m not going to lie: I almost stole McCall. Those curls and those crystal blue eyes. Who wouldn’t want to steal him after spending time with him?!
He made me laugh so much when he sneezed and I handed him hand sanitizer. McCall licked it. I learned to give better instructions and gave him a good cuddle for that mistake!
April is stunning. She’s such a gentle soul. A speech therapist by trade, I could easily see her patience and perseverance at this maternity session.
Everything about her color scheme just screamed serene.
We carried the same color scheme over into her newborn session. I love how this made both galleries perfectly suited for either an album or a wall collage together.f
This tiny smile in this Piper Romper from Lydia’s Hope Chest was my favorite from this session.

This precious mama’s sister gifted her both a maternity and newborn session with us. She wanted Samantha to feel beautiful, treasured, and to take some time to celebrate her precious daughter Scarlett. I’m really glad that Cassie connected us!
Samantha and I chose a couple of sweet dresses from our studio wardrobe. A flowered gown and a cream lace mini dress. Samantha looked like a goddess in both of them. She is a poised model who needed little direction on facial expression or posing.
Baby Scarlett was a welcome surprise. A joy they were expecting to be a long time coming. She is adored beyond my ability to share in words.
My favorite part of maternity sessions is just the quiet time to enjoy each mama and learn about her hopes for her baby and her fears about early motherhood. I never want a client to leave my studio without feeling specifically and especially encouraged in her mama journey.
Samantha, I can’t wait to meet Scarlett and continue supporting you as best as I can.
Thinking about freezing time through a maternity or newborn portrait session? I’d love to serve your family with encouragement and priceless memories in both digital and printed forms.
Sometimes mamas amaze me from the very beginning.
Lindsey was one of those mamas. Her very first email won me over immediately. Her grateful heart and bubbly personality shone through from the beginning.
Lindsey’s baby was a complete miracle. A previous emergency surgery had given her a very small chance to conceive again. Just as her husband Jason and she had surrendered their hope for another baby….
And even better yet, they took the surprise further by keeping the gender a surprise until his/her birth day! I honestly can’t wait to meet s/he and find out. I love that Lindsey is keeping it a surprise for me even after delivery.
Lindsey chose to add hair and makeup onto her maternity session and she was overjoyed with her choice. Katie from Cotton Rouge made Lindsey feel and look so amazing that Jason and Lindsey spontaneously hired a sitter for date that evening!
Speaking of Jason and Lindsey, their bond was one of the most beautiful husband and wife relationships I have witnessed in the studio. When Jason brought the boys into the studio Lindsey pretty much glowed. He made her smile and blossom into the most beautiful version of herself right in front of my eyes. I couldn’t believe it.
And their boys… ah Sawyer and Cole. These little love bugs were adorable.
Sawyer at two was the most obedient two year old I’ve ever had in the studio. Although he did get a little flustered as his attention span waned, we almost always got the shot with Sawyer in the first couple of frames.
Cole is Lindsey’s adventurous dare devil. His personality shined immediately. I’m not sure we got a single classic smile at all, but that’s okay because we captured his mischievous personality to the fullest. I loved it.
Lindsey, I can’t wait to meet your surprise miracle. Thank you so much for trusting me with your memories.
When McCall walked in the studio for this session he was bright eyed and curious. Like most 2 year olds, he needed a moment to get to know me. I let him click the shutter a few times and talk to me while he began to be comfortable in the studio.
The truth is 1-3 year olds are complete wildcards in the studio. But I could tell that McCall’s mama April had read and followed a number of tips in my 11 Ways to Prepare and Young Child for a Photography Session. McCall warmed up quickly and smiled easily while his mama changed into her gown.
While I do offer wardrobe for all my mama’s in the studio, April chose to bring her own clothing. And April’s gown was the perfect selection. In fact, I’m still thinking of convincing her to sell it to me.
The light and airy colors and length are just the perfect compliment to my cream studio. The dreamy lighting techniques showed off her new mama glow perfectly!
McCall clearly adored his mama. Their bond over giggles and baby sister’s tummy and sweet hugs was just incredible.
McCall will clearly be the best big brother.
