A Dreamy Sunset Maternity Session

Emily is a sweet momma to 5 kiddos and about to welcome her 6th baby, and her 5th boy. When we chatted about her maternity session she mentioned that she had NEVER had a maternity session before, even with all her previous pregnancies. After I picked my jaw up from the floor, we got down to planning.

Momma’s it’s so, so important to be in the photographs that you cherish. I’m preaching to the choir here since I’m a serial self loather and body shamer of my own body. Even if you don’t suffer from the insecurities I do, you’ve probably made other excuses like time, or budget, or “is this really necessary?” It is necessary. It’s a treasure for your children, and investment in your story and legacy, and something that they will cherish long after you are gone. RANT OVER.

So Em and I ventured out to some dreamy locations and clicked away to preserve the memory of this pregnancy for her and her family. She felt like a princess in her twirly pink skirt. We escaped from life for a little bit, playing dressup and dancing in fields.

She is fearless, an epic friend, a lover of adventure and life, and one to say “Let’s do it!” to many crazy ideas. We love that her and her family are in our lives!
