When Baby Makes Four | Pacific Northwest Maternity Session

When Baby Makes Four  |  Pacific Northwest Maternity Session

I’ve had the honor of documenting this precious family since their own parenting journey began, and I am so excited for Jake & Missy to welcome their second little boy into the world, and for sweet Alexander to become a big brother. Missy, my wish for you today is that you’ll soak up these last few weeks as a family of three, savoring the small moments that will forever be changed once Baby Boy #2 makes his appearance. When he does arrive, he will change your world - only for the better.

With every session, my goal is to capture authentic moments and interactions that showcase love and emotion; documenting what it felt like to be in that moment, right then.  This is especially important to me when documenting mothers and expectant mothers, because I know from my own first-hand experience that the old saying, "the days are long but the years are short" couldn't be more true.

Pregnancy is a miracle. It is remarkable. Mind-blowing. Truly indescribable. In fact, my love for photography and this business was inspired by my own pregnancy.  Experiencing something so beautiful, so transformational, yet temporary, made me yearn for a way to preserve the moments that felt too good to be real.

Magic.  Maybe it was the combination of the crisp, cold air and warm, golden sunset.  Or perhaps it was the way he looked at her; endearingly, grateful, and completely in love, both with her and the baby she carries. Whatever it was, it made this session truly magical.
