Sweet Life Photography – Crystal’s baby bump [2 + 1]

I absolutely love photographing maternity photos. It’s a magical time for moms, well, actually for the entire family, to be honest. I remember how excited my two girls were when I was pregnant with our third baby girl (they would rub my tummy, talk to the baby and loved feeling her kicking and moving). When Crystal contacted me for maternity photos for her baby#3 I was thrilled!  You see, I never had maternity photos taken of my first two pregnancies and it saddens me (I have a few iPhone shots or tripod/timer photos, but nothing professional)…I’ve always regretted that, and for my baby#3 I had two maternity sessions done and those images hold a special place in my heart. I knew Crystal needed these maternity photos and it was extra special that her entire family was on-board and just as excited to be in the photos to record this special time for their family.

Little Cole and Lauren had me laughing the entire time they were here and this entire family knows how to snuggle. It was so special to witness and document their love and excitement. I can’t wait to see them again in a few shorts weeks once baby arrives.

If you love these photos as much as I do, leave a comment below. 20+ comments will earn this family a complimentary gift.

Sweet Life Photography: Annual Family Portraits…yes, every year!!!

This family is so great! Seriously. I’ve known them for years and get the amazing opportunity to photograph them annually (check out the last few years here and here and here). Our sessions are always full of love and laughter.  I cannot emphasize how strongly I feel about capturing family photos each year…..it’s shocking to see how quickly your children change in just one short year.  I’m glad we made time for a few solo photos of each Linnea and Toby, but my absolute favorite images from this session, by far, were the sweet moments of Linnea and Toby together.  Aren’t they amazing?!

If you’d like to book your very own family portrait session with Sweet Life Photography you can contact me HERE. I am usually booked 2 to 3 months in advance, so if you are looking for a Spring or Summer date, best to be in touch soon!  CLICK HERE to view more of my portfolio.
