A Year in the Life – Gretchen’s Maternity Session

 

One of my favorite things in this business is when I have the opportunity to document not just the first day in the life of a new family, but also as it begins to grow!  Gretchen & Justin pretty much got pregnant the minute they got married ;) and now I get to photograph a Year-in-the-Life of their first child!!  I’m so excited to watch this little cutie grow up!

The first session in a Year-in-the-Life Package is usually a maternity session.  The maternity session is a chance to document the beauty and craziness that is pregnancy.  I think pregnant women are so lovely!  I hear so many women talk about how they feel fat and gross when they’re pregnant, but honestly, I think they are amazing and beautiful.  I mean, there’s a teeny tiny human being growing and living INSIDE of them!  That’s AMAZING!  The first time my sister was pregnant, we would just sit around staring at her belly exclaiming in wonder, “there’s a PERSON in there!!”  Come on, it’s a wondrous miracle!!!  As you can tell, I’m fascinated by the whole thing and I LOVE to take maternity photos, when moms will let me :)  I’m so glad Gretchen is such a good sport!

[…] it wasn’t long after Gretchen’s Maternity Session that little baby Chloe came along!  I was able to get over to the house just a day after she came […]
