I love shooting maternity.Β  It’s such an awesome thing to experience as a couple and I always get all mushy cuz there is just something about having kids.Β  Of course, the pregnancy itself can be the pits, but so far I haven’t had any moody mothers to deal with.Β  The poor photographer that will have to take my next maternity pics…Β  πŸ™‚Β  Anyway, this chick was glowing.Β  You know how they say that right?Β  Oh, pregnancy just gives you that glow!Β  I didn’t experience the glow.Β  I experienced a waddle, I experienced having an emotional breakdown over spilt milk (they say that too – don’t cry over spilt milk) and I experienced ankles the size of tree trunks.Β  I am not a pretty expectant mother.Β  But this girl??Β  This girl was glowing.Β  This girl was beautiful.Β  And P.S., this girl had an ADORABLE baby.Β  πŸ™‚

This adorable peanut was a little spitfire for pictures!Β  She is the sweet baby girl (well, not a baby anymore!!) of a friend of mine, so I hung out with her little guy watching Diego and America’s Funniest Home Videos while she tried to feed Lexi and get her to fall asleep.Β  But you know how kids are, when you want them to stay awake, they crash, and when you want them to sleep they’re like, hey, let’s party!Β  So we had ourselves a little party πŸ˜‰Β  We still got some adorable pics, just not as many as we had hoped for.Β  Meet Lexi!

Isn’t she adorable?!!Β  Love that peachy skin and those smooshy lips!Β  πŸ™‚

After announcing this week’s theme, I kinda had to laugh. I probably should’ve said the theme was “me” rather than “you”. Cuz although I wanted to see pics of YOU guys, it was weird for people to upload photos of themselves and tag it “YOU”. Anyways, that probably only made sense in my head – don’t judge. I loved all of the photos this week!! So while I have 3 favorites, I also have 3 honorable mentions πŸ˜‰
Marlies Korporal β”‚ LOVE this shot!! how’s that for timing?!!

This little family of 3 (including Cooper of course) will soon be a family of 4!Β  They wanted to have one last momento as justΒ a couple before baby arrives.Β  I had a lot of fun on this shoot because I’m really drawn to crazy compositions, and they let me just DO MY THING.Β  I’m sure their eyebrows were raised at some of my suggestions πŸ™‚Β  Just wanna wish you guys all the best, and I hope baby K makes a no-fuss arrival!!
