carolyn :: minneapolis maternity photographer

Meet this beautiful mama. She is a dear friend of mine, and she's expecting her third daughter now. I absolutely love the way her smile just lights up her whole face. She has such a glow about her with this pregnancy, a radiance from within. She just sparkles... I wish there weren't so many miles between us! Thank you for allowing me to photograph you, Carolyn! It was a total blast. Minneapolis natural light maternity photography

Meet my very dear friend Melissa Surprise. Yes, that's her real name. Isn't she gorgeous? She's an incredibly talented childrens' lifestyle photographer as well, based in Highland, NY. If you live in upstate New York and are looking for some fun, bright, modern photos that really capture your child's personality, do give her a call! She's expecting her third boy, and she got a turn in front of the camera during our reunion in Nashville. I absolutely adore shooting maternity portraits using natural light. The glow and radiance of the moms, the way the light hugs the curves in their growing bellies... it's all so inspiring. Oh, that and the fact that they're not two years old and constantly running away from the camera!

We were also able to photograph a newborn (just 13 days old!) and another one of my dear friends (and incredible photographer!) who is also expecting. Can't wait to share these photos as well. Stay tuned!

On to the photos!
