2 BEAUTIFUL 'baby bumps' =)

I had the privilege of photographing two expectant Moms recently...they were both GLOWING and absolutely stunning.
The first Mama was photographed during a 'blessingway' which is similar to a baby shower but it's ALL about the Mom where some heavy pampering takes place. WOOHOO!
The design on Mama's belly was painted with henna by her friends, which made for an extra neato 'belly shot'!

Here is the beautiful Jess, due any day now =)

Here is the lovely Rachelle with big-sister-to-be, Chi =)

I told you they're stunning!
Thanks for looking..till next time!

I Miss Her Already....Stephanie, Age 2 1/ 2

It's taken me a few days to be able to compose this post, mainly because i get a little 'drippy' every time i try to sit and type. Steph's Daddy has been transferred out to Colorado, so Thursday we set up a 'final session' before they head out.
I first photographed Stephanie just after she started sitting up on her own. She was such a beautiful baby, and even back then her personality was infectious. She's lovely, charming, personable and of course extremely photogenic ;-). I can't even believe how much she's changed and grown with each session. The uber chubby feet and thighs have made way for a tall, demure little girl who stands proud and smiles sweetly at me. She's full of giggles and raspberries and i am going to miss her terribly.
Here is one of the portraits from her first session:

and here she is now...isn't she amazing?

Here she is with her sweet dog, Sadie =)

Mom and Dad's lungs got quite the workout from blowing all those bubbles lol!

Ginger and Chris, thank you so much for sharing your little doll baby with me...till we meet again =)
