These two beautiful people are expecting baby number 9! A sweet baby girl, who will be surrounded in love ♥

We ventured into a nearby wildflower field for Amber’s maternity session just before sunset. I watch this field bloom and dream of using it and finally had the chance! I love the soft warm glow that surrounds her, feels a bit like magic ♥ Goodness I’m a sucker for Daddy loving on Momma too! Baby girl will be here any day now, lots of love and congratulations to you guys!

Accomplished! The entire day was relaxed, easy-going and so much fun. Larry & Becky, we loved working with the two of you! Thank you for one killer amazing working experience ♥

I can hardly believe it’s already been just over a month since this sweet girl visited me for her newborn session! Alexis, you were a perfect little model for me and I loved swaddling you up into a cute little ball of squish! I love that you prefer your mom & dad to snuggle into too, because look how precious you are wrapped in their arms ♥

On this Mother’s Day, I’d love to give a shout out to all the rad folks who’ve ever made another mom feel like a warrior mom. Motherhood is not always glorious and we all have bad days. Some of us have children who are… different. Who aren’t quite socially “normal”. We see your judging eyes and hear your comments, but what’s really powerful? Those glances and reassuring nods from strangers that say “you’re doing okay. You’ve got this warrior mom!” It gives us those quick pick me ups on bad days and gives me the courage to reach out when I see other warrior moms having a hard time too.

Strangers don’t have the opportunity to meet the little boy that’s so filled with love for his sister that he’d rather skip a fun time out to be home with her when she’s sick. Or the random hugs he gives that come right when you need them most. They only see the boy panicking because a stranger touched his shoulder to tell him something. They broke his bubble and he’s freaking out. He’s being rude. That’s what they think, but they just don’t know. They don’t know that it breaks me a little bit each time this happens. But somehow, you do and you give me that look that says it’s okay. Thanks for that. Really. Thank you.

After every newborn session, I feel incredibly overwhelmed with so much love. Like I’m the luckiest lady in all the land. I get to cuddle all these scrumptious babies that these wonderful parents bring over and trust me with. I get to rock & sway them, listen to their sweet quick breaths, love all their little details that were perfectly created that make up their unique little selves ♥

Riley, you are so precious baby girl. Your mommy & daddy are even luckier than I am because you’re theirs ♥ You were a perfect little lady for your session!
