The last trimester — the nesting time — has begun, and both pink and blue and neutral colors were included in some special photos in a favorite park, documenting this couple’s waiting for baby who is due in early November.
He’s so happy! She’s very radiant! We were all very wet in the rain, but glad we met and captured these special photos.
And one more, SOOC — they don’t need anything to enhance their cuteness.

This sweet family welcomed their second daughter into the world just a few days after I captured these photos for them in a nearby park.
Lilly looks forward to sharing her beanie animals with her baby sister Abby.
Big sister Lilly was excited because she got to choose Little Sister’s shoes for some of the photos.

Baby! It’s COLD outside!
Mike & Laura met me on Sunday afternoon for a few maternity shots just one week before their baby girl’s due date. The blustery wind made us move from site to site quickly, and the new daddy- and mommy-to-be were so fun & natural to capture.
As we got fast photos and talked, they decided to get their little bag packed for this week’s antiticipated excitement, with a harsh winter ice and snow storm on its way. I reminded Mike to pack some soothing lotion to give Laura a much needed massage.
Talk about EXCITING! … The day after this photo session, Laura texted me from the hospital with the happy message that their baby girl had been born.
Thank You, Lord, for Baby C’s safe arrival, and for a healthy and happy new little family. I look forward to capturing Baby C’s newborn photos for you, Mike and Laura!
