GAH! I literally don't even know where to begin and just how excited I am to share these images with you all. My beautiful sister in law, Nicole, is pregnant with baby number 2 (AHH! SO EXCITED!) and I had the honor of capturing her beauty yesterday. First let me just say this, motherhood amazes me! There's nothing like witnessing and experiencing the love that a mother has for her child. I'm so proud of my sister and how amazing of a mother she is! It brings my heart the greatest joy. Nicole is a dream to capture, pregnant or non pregnant, she just radiates beauty and peace inside and out. I've watched Nicole transform from a wife into a mother and it has been the most rewarding and heart warming journey. She inspires me every day!

For this photo series I wanted to capture Nicole in her purest form. I wanted these images to be bright + airy. I loved how her white maxi dress fit so perfectly with the scenery of our shoot. As a photojournalist lifestyle photographer, it's always so important for me to capture raw and natural moments... Especially for a maternity session! We are counting down the days until we meet this little peanut. I feel so blessed to have documented these memories for my sister in law and brother. May God bless you all today and always! Beyond blessed to become an aunt again! God truly is so good and so faithful! xx

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

James 1:17
