Adrienne’s maternity shot

When Adrienne contacted me to capture her beautiful pregnancy for her I was flattered. First of all, I love maternity shots; pregnant women just have a certain glow… Secondly, Adrienne is a local photographer. So, when one of your own asks you to take pictures, it’s extra special! You can see her work here: Adrienne Orilla

Adrienne was so lovely, poised and confident. A woman truly comfortable in her own skin. She just radiates with joy and confidence to me. Here are just a few of my favorite shots. I know her husband is going to love them!

15 days until Christmas

Christmas is such a special holiday for children. The joy and awe they experience in the world around them is especially heightened this time of year. We went out to look at Christmas lights tonight and my littlest was squealing with joy at all of the decorations and festivities. And my son, a big boy at almost 7 years old, just loves to decorate the house and has taken to creating little pieces of art with his markers and crayons and wrapping them up as gifts to give under the Christmas tree.

So although I feel totally overwhelmed with all of the preparation that occurs for this holiday, experiencing my children’s joy over it all makes it worth it.

15 days until Christmas

She’s really figured it out this year, she’s even shaking those presents to see what’s inside…

Mr. “all boy”, I’m telling you…
