Caroline and Dave, and their sweet little one, Alice, were one of my first families I took photos of when I was building my portfolio and trying to figure out if this dream was something I wanted to pursue.  They were also my first outdoor session ever and we had such a great time together!  They were natural in front of the camera which made my job easy, and Alice was so much fun.  Their encouragement following that session was a huge reason that I started believing in myself and took this leap – I can’t thank them enough!!

When Caroline told me that she was pregnant with Baby #2, I knew I wanted to do this for her.  We waited as long as we could before our move, hoping to get as big of a belly as we could – but that also meant that it would be cold!  We had an absolutely gorgeous, crisp, Fall morning – it started out at only 31 degrees, but the sun was so beautiful and we didn’t freeze!  This girl is awesome – I had her laying on trees (of course), in the leaves, laying on steps – pretty much everywhere, and she was so willing to just do whatever we came up with.  I absolutely love so many of these photos and can’t wait to do more maternity sessions. This first year of business is a lot of trial and error. I’m constantly trying to fine tune my style, and also find what I like to shoot best.  I adore shooting families and know that will be my focus, but I truly loved maternity as well and will definitely seek adding more of that to my portfolio and speciality.

Caroline – I wish you and Dave the absolutely best of luck with your growing family and will be praying you and Elliot’s safe arrival!!
