brittnie + michael

I cannot even express how much I enjoyed this shoot. I love maternity photography in general, but spending time with these beautiful people made me so, so happy. It also made me feel very old! Back when beautiful Brittnie was in 8th grade, I was her English teacher, and we certainly did have some good times in that class. I will never forget that year of teaching, or the love I had for those kids. Now, she’s all grown up, and about to be a mother! Both Ben and I also taught Brittnie’s younger sister, Stephanie, and she came along for the shoot so we could all hang out and reminisce. It was so wonderful to see them! I just can’t believe how quickly time flies, and how different my life is now from what it was back then. It’s so incredibly amazing to think about where you’ve been, and how far you’ve come.

Brittnie and Michael are just about the cutest little parents-to-be that I’ve ever seen, and I’m so excited for them! They are both so ready to welcome their baby girl into their family, and they love her so much already. I can’t wait to meet her (and find out what name you decided on)!! Much love to you guys, and we’ll see you soon!

This was the only “pose” that Brittnie requested.  They are just too cute!  I love them.  :)

I had a bunch of maternity shoots in a row, so now I’m blogging them all in a row! Stephanie and her hubby Chris were married back in 2010, and it was a wonderful wedding to be a part of – we had such a great time with them! When Stephanie contacted us to inquire about maternity and newborn photos, we were SO excited!! I know I just said this in the last post, but it’s so true…it’s such an unbelievable honor when we get to stick with our couples beyond their wedding day, throughout all of the major events in their lives, and continue to capture these moments in time for them. It makes me so, so happy. :)

Stephanie, you are so beautiful in these photos! You guys are going to be such wonderful parents!! We can’t wait to meet baby Colton!

    Thanks, Kathy!! So glad you like! This spot is actually right near our house. I’ve had my eye on that downed tree for ages! Glad I finally got to use it in a shot! :)
