I LOVED shooting this Maternity Session.  Deepti was not only stunning to look at, but her personality was so warm and inviting and I had the best time with her and her husband! These soon-to-be parents could not contain their excitement, and I was so thrilled to be the one documenting this sweet stage in their life.  I loved all the laughter, the cute snuggling, and the happiness every time her sweet belly was mentioned.  It was so funny to realize that we both traveled 30 minutes to be at this location— only to live 5 minutes from one another.  It couldn’t have been more perfect, though!  I wish I could say that the haze was a foggy dream as it appears in these pictures, but it was actually the smoke from the NW wildfires that have overtaken this beautiful side of the country.  I’m glad that we could turn such sadness into happiness through these photos and I am so excited for their darling little girl to arrive:)

I am just ooh-ing and ahh-ing over this adorable newborn.  His natural smile completely brightened my day and I can’t get over how chill he was the whole session.  There was the occasional “please go to sleep” moments, but at two weeks old he was the perfect picture taker and I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to capture his sweet face! Mom and Dad were obviously so happy at his arrival and I couldn’t ask for a better way to spend a morning.  “The littlest feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts.” (unknown)

I.can’t.even.handle.these.pictures.  So inspiring. So fresh.  So whimsical and lovely and spirited and fun.  Katie and Matt and her cute baby belly were a DREAM to photograph.  I asked them to meet me at a local berry picking farm and it was everything I could have hoped for.  The levels of light as the sun went down and the color contrasts it created made me so so happy.  And isn’t her maternity dress to die for?  This hot Mama was STUNNING.  The sweet blackberries and farm fresh-cut flowers added a homespun touch to the evening and I simply loved every moment!  It is always so fun to meet expecting parents, but I was just in awe of how completely grounded and solid their strength in the whole process is. It’s as if they have already done this before! I truly FELT their excitement for this new life that is about to come into the world and the momentum that it takes to get there.  I left the night wanting to spend more time with them, and thus begins my new crush on their sweet growing family:)  PS.  Those berries were seriously delicious.

I was so so so happy when this cute family wanted to do a beach session with me! We headed to Cannon Beach, Oregon on a sunny day and were greeted with the usual wind and cloudy PNW skies:) For us locals–it was definitely no big deal. It was a silly, casual, and relaxed session that left us with images truly reflecting all the sweet and SILLY personalities in this bunch.  Their oldest is leaving for college in a few days-so capturing these moments felt extra special and I am so grateful for all the beautiful love that they shared with me.
