Due date: April 22.
How did you find out you were expecting? Found out by taking an at home test after noticing some symptoms.
How did you tell the father?
I showed my husband the test before he left for work one morning. We were thrilled and nervous at the same time!
Did you find out the gender of your baby?
No, we want the gender to be a surprise.
Is there a name picked out yet?
We have narrowed the name down to 4 of each, boy and girl… hard to decide. Hoping once we see that sweet face it’ll be obvious which name to choose!
How has pregnancy changed you as a woman?
Pregnancy has made me more health conscious knowing what I fuel my body with is what my baby is also fueled with. I also feel pregnancy gives women a sense of purpose! Our bodies do amazing things!!
What advice do you wish you had known before getting pregnant (even if it’s something gross)?
Not to worry about every little thing. To enjoy the beautiful process of growing a tiny baby! Relax!
What is one thing you find beautiful about being pregnant?
I find my growing belly beautiful. And I absolutely LOVE feeling my little darling move and stretch. God had blessed women with this gift and I love every moment!
What would you tell someone who just found out they were pregnant?
I would tell someone who just found out to write down all the small things so they can remember the beautiful process long after baby is born. It’s such a special time!
What are your beauty must-haves while pregnant?
I use coconut oil on my belly morning and night to help my skin while stretching and growing.
Can you share with our mommies where you purchased the items you wore for your maternity session?
I bought my dress from Motherhood and my jewelry from Charming Charlie.
Kind words about your photographer?
Kimberly was so helpful firing the session, making sure we were positioned in the most flattering ways. She was incredibly patient with my little ones also. It was obvious that she is passionate and has great talent! We are thrilled with how the session turned out and would love to book more with her. Amazing photographer!
I believe in giving our children the gift of our existence in photographs with them. Something for them to hold and look back on to remember the joys of their childhood and our love for them. They love us as we are and want to see us in those photographs too!
I believe in the importance of capturing the essence of children and families and freezing those moments and memories so we can look back on them; be transported back to that place in time. Time passes so quickly, especially when we’re raising our children, and we can never get that time back.
I have always loved working with children and taught elementary school for several years before deciding to stay home with my son. It was then that the opportunity arose to allow me to pursue and combine my passions of photography and working with children.
My goal is to create timeless portraits that will be viewed and passed down by many generations to come. I have a special attention for detail and strive to make all of my photographs works of art. I am a full-service photographer and work to make your experience enjoyable and stress-free. Let me do all the work!
