Belly Bump

December 23, 2009

Carrie & Kurt are expecting their first – a baby girl – in March! In anticipation of the upcoming baby shower, they came in to document this amazing time in their lives. Carrie’s baby bump is adorable! It’s just this little bitty belly sticking out in front of her.

I love it when I get a glimpse into a couple’s relationship during the session. You can tell that Kurt adores Carrie and would just do anything for her. I think he’s going to be in trouble…with a baby girl…he’s going to be wrapped around her finger!

Baby Number II

October 20, 2009

My good friends, Cheri and Brian, are expecting baby number two! With both kiddos, they have found out during the pregnancy if it’s a boy or a girl, but they haven’t revealed the name. This means some sort of nickname has to be created. With the first baby, it was Baby M. This time, it’s Baby M II. I think it’s a good thing that they’re not planning on having a lot of babies, because I’m not sure I would know enough Roman numerals to figure out which number we’re on!

We know they’re having a boy this time. The perfect addition to their family, since Baby M was an adorable baby girl, Miss Adele!

With Daddy’s crazy tall height, and the fact that Mommy looks like she has a basketball in her tummy, I’ve determined that they’re going to be giving birth to the next famous basketball player! (I know Mommy just loves me making fun of her belly!)

I can’t wait to meet the little man!!

So Sweet!

December 11, 2008

Maria walked in the door with this adorable little pregnant belly. I know to her it's not so little, but compared to some of the other bellies I've photographed, it was pretty little!

I had a great time photographing Chris & Maria, because I had an opportunity to sneak into their world. Just by asking questions, encouraging them to get close together and watching them interact. They are so sweet with each other! Especially, Chris, you can tell that he just adores Maria.

I'm excited to find out what they're having. I know, whether they have a girl or a boy, they are going to be sweet, sweet parents.

She’s Going To Melt Daddy’s Heart

December 11, 2008

Even though Daddy is a big time tough guy, he doesn't often get very serious and is always full of joking, laughter and goofiness. I know that his baby girl is going to have him wrapped around her little finger. He's actually already been selecting the girly pink stuff from the baby store and talking about how "she's a girl"!

He's going to be in so much trouble!

It's a good thing mommy and daddy came in for their maternity session when they did, because nine days later Baby Lily arrived!

Hard Headed

August 14, 2008

Mommy had warned me that youngest daughter, Gabriella, was a bit hard headed and liked to do her own thing. She wasn’t kidding! Gabriella wanted nothing to do with taking photos with mommy’s belly. She always wanted to be three to five feet away, doing her own thing. She’d flash me a great smile and a fun expression, but she wasn’t in the photo.

With lots of bribing, tricking and even some begging, we got everyone in the same photo!

Meanwhile, big sister Madeleine did awesome! It is so hard to behave and cooperate, when little sister is doing her own thing, but Maddie stuck it out and pulled through for us!

Little brother is in for a treat with two, fun loving sisters!

Just One Baby

July 17, 2008

Heather and her husband, Jon, are expecting their first baby at the end of August!

Although, with the many inquires that Heather receives, as to whether she’s having twins or someone even asked about triplets, I think she’s ready for baby to arrive! Heather and Jon have been blessed with what the doctors like to call "a big baby." Last week, they were told that the baby is measuring around six pounds. I guess on the positive side, I’ve heard that "big" babies usually sleep really well.

They want to be surprised as to whether it’s a boy or girl, in addition to keeping all potential names to themselves – they are driving their friends and family crazy with all the secrets! We can’t wait to meet Baby N!

Awaiting a Baby Girl!

February 21, 2008

Jennifer is very excited for her baby girl to arrive. She’s got the room all decorated and put together, and is ready for baby to make an appearance. Jennifer and her husband are still finalizing names, but definitely have ideas! The countdown has begun, Jennifer knows exactly how many days it is until her due date – I think she’s ready!

Two Kids on Her Hands!

January 25, 2008

Emily’s going to have her hands full with the new baby, and hubby Ryan – who’s a big kid, himself! He was a really good sport at their motherhood session, doing everything I asked, without complaining. But he was also a really big goof – blowing in Emily’s ear (not the romantic way), giving raspberry kisses on Em’s belly, making Emily laugh, being a big kid.

No, really, I just like to give him a hard time! They’re both going to be great parents! I see lots of fun times and lots of laughing and smiling in their future!

Month to Month

December 6, 2007

We’ve been patiently awaiting the arrival of baby Dominic! Capturing each month as he grew inside mommy’s tummy! We are so excited that he entered the world a couple of weeks ago! An 8 lb 2 ounce healthy little man!

Baby Number Four is On the Way

November 30, 2007

Baby "George", as big sister calls him, will be making an appearance pretty soon! He’ll be entering a great family, with three awesome older siblings. Mom and Dad haven’t found out the sex of the baby, content to wait until "he" arrives. When I polled the kids, Bret said he wants a brother, Sarah wants a sister and Zach is indifferent! It will be fun to find out if baby number four is a boy or a girl!
