Sneak Peek: Amber and Margie {MATERNITY}

Tonight I had the most fun photographing 1) my first outdoor maternity session 2) my first double maternity session, with the awesome Amber and her stepmom, Margie. The clincher? Amber and Margie are due on the same day. Amber is expecting a boy, and her stepmom is expecting a girl. Isn’t that just amazing for their family? These two women are perfect examples of the beauty of pregnancy, and I had such a great time capturing them tonight!

Isn’t Amber amazing? She needed almost no direction, and just oozes great style. I love this picture!


Another favorite. She looks like she belongs right there, in the field. There is such peace on her face.


As much as I adore a lovely picture, now and again, I also crave something with an edge. This one did it for me.


This is Margie…well, this is Margie’s amazing baby bump!


Another gorgeous shot, of Margie and her baby belly!


These next two pictures turned out amazing. I saw them standing here, and felt like they were models posing for a maternity catalog or magazine. Work it!


How cute are they? Amber and Margie, thank you so much for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives. I wish you smooth endings to your pregnancies, and best wishes to bring home your new little blessings soon!
