I was SO excited when Jenna contacted me to do her maternity session – what an honor! I’ve been Facebook friends with Jenna for quite some time, but this was our first in person meeting. We chose the Valley of Fire for her maternity session because honestly, you really can’t find a more amazing or other worldly back drop to showcase a beautiful pregnant belly. We instantly hit it off with Jenna and her family and had a beautiful day and got some amazing images! Jenna looked absolutely stunning! Her baby’s tentative due date was in mid-March, and they are still waiting for their little one to arrive. I just told her today that I’m stalking her Facebook page like a crazy lady. I can’t wait to see pictures of her new baby! Here are a few of my favorites from Jenna’s maternity session. Jenna – it was SO wonderful meeting you and your family! Best wishes for a speedy and healthy delivery! 🙂
Do you want to know what’s cuter than cute? My beautiful, curly haired little boy holding one of his chickens! It really doesn’t get much cuter than a beautiful child and a sweet hen. We live on a little wannabe farm on the outskirts of Kingman AZ (about 100 miles south of Las Vegas) and chickens are a big thing around here. We have about 40 of them and have raised most of them ourselves since they were tiny, newly hatched chicks. This sweet girl was hatched here at our house – which, by the way, is an AMAZING thing for your children to witness. If you ever get the chance to let your children experience hatching some chicks, do not pass it up!
I’ve found a sweet spot right near our house with the most amazing light, and the rich, warm colors that I love so much. This first image of my little Elliott ranks in my top 10 favorite images I’ve ever taken. I cannot wait to get this one up on my wall. Elliott has such a sweet, gentle, compassionate spirit and I think you can see that in his eyes in this photograph. It sums up his personality perfectly.
