THIS! I've always wanted maternity milk bath photos, and yay! Here they are! Thanks to my husband for getting these shots and for totally going the extra mile to get cool shots.

Patiently waiting for Baby Bryant! And I cannot WAIT to find out if this baby is a boy or a girl! Eeek! So exciting. It won't long before we will all know! I SO enjoyed this session with my good friend and amazing photographer, Megan Bryant! As photographers, we are often working hard to create beautiful images for other people, but we have to remember that WE, ourselves, need beautiful photos too! I am SO happy that I had the opportunity to provide those to this loving, kind, and FUN family!

These maternity sessions are making my jaw drop! Look at all of the gorgeousness. I seriously cannot wait for this precious baby's arrivals so I can take some sweet Mommy & Me shots and some Daddy kisses and some little toes along with that sweet little face! There is no doubt that this child will be gorgeous; I mean, look at the parents! Stunning! Loved everything about this session!

Patiently waiting on this sweet baby boy to make his arrival! This session meant SO much to me. Beth and Nate not only go to church with us, but they have also become great friends through music. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this little boy won't be truly truly loved by SO many, including myself! Can we just talk for a minute about how GORGEOUS Beth is? These are INCREDIBLE! We had a BLAST! So so much love to your sweet family, Beth! 

A Very Special Maternity Story: Summer | Mono/Di Twins | Mariah Springs Photography | Danville, Virginia Photographer

A Very Special Maternity Story: Summer | Mono/Di Twins | Mariah Springs Photography | Danville, Virginia Photographer

It was a Sunday. I had just come home from church and was stressing about who knows what—the laundry, work, my child, the dog. I never really check my inquiries on Sundays, but for some reason on this particular Sunday, I sat down at my computer to check them. It was then that I met Summer. It was then that I hung my head in tears and prayer for her, for our world, for all of the strong Mamas out there that I admire so much, and it was then that my troubles became nothing. I snapped into reality and was incredibly humbled, moved, and in awe of Summer and women who endure such tragedy.

Eeek! When in bloom, must use! THIS SESSION! YES YES! So, yes, I was that crazy person in the pouring down snow (that's right it SNOWED this day randomly) cutting off this branch from the tree in my front yard. I bet everyone riding by got a hoot out of that (because I'm less than graceful ha!). But you guys, LOOK at these. They turned out so PERFECT! I love the colors and the simplicity and that SWEET EMMA! I just can't. I'm so in love and can't wait to meet their newest addition.

Maternity sessions have my heart, especially with this precious family! Not only were they kind, laid back, and excited for their newest arrival, but they were also downright FUN! I can't wait to photograph them all again with the newest arrival to their sweet little family. Meanwhile, enjoy all of this beauty! 

Maternity Tub Session: Giseli

Maternity Tub Session: Giseli

Oh, how I LOVE a tub session. Giseli & Stuart are expecting their first baby soon. We had so much fun with Giseli's entire shoot, but I had to post just our tub session because I couldn't wait! Giseli is from Brazil, and we got to incorporate some fun Brazilian accessories throughout, but THESE. These are a true depiction of a Brazilian goddess right here! Gorgeous!

I am THRILLED to be able to display these images from one of my very best friend's maternity session! I couldn't be more excited for these two about the arrival of their sweet little Gradin. Not only am I excited because I know that our boys will be great friends so we can all hang out (haha!), but I am also excited because Judith and Girard are going to be exceptional great parents.

When Megan asked me to take her maternity photos, I was THRILLED! She is my cousin and lives next to some of my grandma's land, so this was awesome for me to shoot there! I take people there to shoot occasionally and ALWAYS like to take my own family photos there because it's just so special to my family. Her nursery is gorgeous, her family is gorgeous, and SHE is gorgeous! So happy to get to see them again and work with them to create these beautiful images.
