After experiencing motherhood firsthand, I have fallen in love with maternity portraits and decided to officially offer maternity photos as a part of my lifestyle photography. Being a mom is the most rewarding job in the world and the most beautiful I have ever felt was when I was pregnant. I look back at my own self portraits while pregnant and I am so grateful that I was able to capture those miraculous moments of my growing belly. I now feel a genuine connection to all pregnant women and I want to be able to capture this special time in their lives. Although I have photographed many growing bellies and moms-to-be in the past, Kirstin & Pat’s maternity session was one of my first since officially announcing myself as maternity photographer. This couple may look familiar to some of you because I also photographed their engagement session (engagement photos here!) and their wedding (wedding photos here!) last year! As a photographer, I think one of the greatest compliments is when your clients continue to come back to you. Kirstin and Pat, thank you for allowing me to document these special moments in your life (and thank you Pat for being my biggest facebook and instagram fan!!). As always, it’s a pleasure to work with you two! You are going to be amazing parents and I can’t wait to hear the news when your precious little ballerina makes her debut in this beautiful world!
