Had a great time photographing these two... Thank you for getting dressed up and letting me photograph this moment as you start your lives together as husband and wife.
May your journey together be colorful, fun and full of happiness!
I had the EXTREME HONOR of painting and photographing his mommy's belly that grew him and was then asked to attend this little man's AMAZING homebirth (my first!!!) at the end of February... and he has just gotten CUTER with each passing day!
This family is quite special to me: I photographed Kelsey (mom) and Steven (dad) when they were Seniors in high school... I photographed their wedding day, which was an absolutely beautiful Fall day... I photographed his sister a handful of times, in mommy's belly and earthside... and now it was his turn!
Another family close to my heart!
This was such a fun shoot! We wanted to recapture the idea of the book, "The Giving Tree," which is what we had painted on mama, Alicia, the year before when she had Eli in her tummy!
I have known this mama since we were in preschool! She is also an AMAZING doula and helped me through the delivery of my son, Tobias! Loved every minute of this shoot!
I always enjoy hanging out with this mama, so I was pretty excited when she wanted to get a belly painting done! When she told me little Ryker's nursery theme was baby Simba from Disney's The Lion King, I was beyond excited to get started! Little Ryker almost rushed in before we had a chance to paint his "face." He actually made his big entrance into the world the very next night! I'm so glad we got to do it. Welcome to the World Lil' Ryker!
This little one is BEAUTIFUL 5 days old "Luke." Welcome to the World Little One...
Beauty can be found everywhere... you just need to open your eyes...
