This weekend I am going to be shooting a session for little guy who is turning 6 months old, and it occurred to me I had never blogged his sweet mama’s maternity session! Click here to see some more awesome maternity sessions.

This maternity session is one of my favorites. It was shot in an amaaazing cotton field in Georgia. Cotton fields are all over the south in the fall and they are a photographer’s dream. The white buds are a perfect neutral backdrop, and the cotton brings so much texture to the images – it makes for really interesting and beautiful photos.

Allyson is a great example of some maternity session outfit ideas. She chose to wear one casual outfit with great color and pattern and one more romantic, flowy dress. Both styles are great and I love that she did both!

Looking at these has really got me excited for fall! It is right around the corner. Contact me today to book a fall session for your family.

I had the honor of shooting Kendra and Craig’s big baby announcement this past fall, and I was so excitied to shoot her maternity photos as well. I can’t wait to meet that sweet baby boy!

Today is World Prematurity Day and in honor of that, I want to share a bit about my friend Mellisa and her adorable baby boy. Jack was born at 32 weeks and was two months old in these photos!

Their family went through so much to get Jack here. Mellisa has always been so brave and open about her struggles with infertility and that is something I admire so much about her! From Mellisa:

“Both of our children were conceived thru in-vitro fertilization. Our seven year old is biologically ours, but Jack Henry is an adopted embryo. We found out with further testing (while trying to add to our family) that scientifically speaking, our oldest shouldn’t be here. My eggs were never viable, and science can’t explain her. Although adoption was always something we were interested in, the desire to be pregnant was still so strong for me. So, we spoke with our doctors, and decided to adopt an embryo. Jack Henry was created from two amazing strangers, who selflessly donated so that we could grow our family. Although Jack is adopted, I was able to have the amazing experience of growing him inside my womb. What an incredible blessing. I felt him move, I heard his heart beat, and watched him grow.”

I had a great time shooting Nashville TN mini sessions this year! Here are a few snaps of two of my families from that day. I’d love to have you join me next time!
