I haven’t had this tough of a time choosing my favorite images to blog in a WHILE. I started out with twice this many! This family was just so adorable and fun to work with. Let me start by introducing you to Miles – the sweet, handsome, focused little guy hangin’ out in dad’s lap.
He was a big fan of our choice to start at the park. :) And here’s his family, and all three of them belong in a magazine!! This is Ginni. She is completely gorgeous, and extra glow-y, as she’s expecting baby #2 just around the corner. So we made sure to highlight her sweet, special bump with some maternity shots of just her. Gosh, I’m glad this kid likes to smile. Those teeth are just the best. Dear Lincoln, Nebraska. The more walls you paint perfect, pretty colors, the better. K, thanks! Miles looooooved this throw-yourself-backwards business and didn’t want to stop, even after we’d moved on. Ha! Silly dude. Jeremie and Ginni are wonderfully comfortable together. Just in having a simple conversation, they brought out such genuine smiles from one another. Ginni, you honestly didn’t take a bad photo the entire night. Such a pleasure to photograph you and your family in such an exciting season of enjoying Miles, and anticipating his sibling. :) And lastly, all summer sessions ought to end with an ice cream cone. This one especially! It was well-deserved, Miles. Way to go, bud! Thanks again to this sweet family for spending some unguarded, unhurried time with me!
These two. Where to even start? Maybe you remember them from the adorable “just because” session we did last fall. Everyone who knows them loves them. They are passionate, dedicated, funny, lovely people who are about to be parents for the first time. Eee! I’m just so excited for them, and completely honored to call them dear friends of mine. I adore this one. It’s so them. :)
I failed to mention it was a balmy 95 degrees or so the evening of our session, and Mandy was fresh as a daisy the entire time. Props to you, mama! Not all the photos in a maternity session need to dial in on that gorgeous, growing bump. I love capturing the relationship as a whole, especially during exciting, pivotal seasons like waiting for a baby. There is no time like it – anticipating major excitement and change, and lingering in the quiet, fading season of “just the two of us.” Baby girl is going to be soooo stylin’. I cannot wait to meet her!!! Mandy, you are seriously radiant. That smile is perfection. I’m glad it won’t be long ’til we get to meet your sweet girl, Tyler & Mandy. So thankful for you both. :)
