Michelle Maternity

I met Michelle two years ago when I took bereavement photos for her when she tragically lost her baby Makenzie. We have since become friends. She has also become someone I admire.

One would think that such heartbreak would dampen someone's outlook on life. And even deter them from wanting another baby again. Not Michelle. She was determined to become a mom.

Michelle called me on Valentine's day to let me know that she was pregnant. I was over the moon excited for her! We immediately started talking of ways to announce her pregnancy. Learn more about Michelle's Rainbow Baby Announcement here.

16 weeks later, I photographed this gorgeous woman again. This time in a beautiful oasis located right smack dab in the desert. My fabulous makeup and hair artist Taryn came to Michelle and pampered her before her shoot. From Hair and Makeup we went straight to a wardrobe that I had carefully stylized specifically for Michelle.

Once we reached our shooting location the sun was setting right on schedule. With perfect lighting and a gorgeous mama. Magic happened.  There are too many favorites  from Michelle's session that I had to sit down and really, really think about which photos to share. It's hard to choose favorites of favorites!

Congratulations Michelle! It is such a blessing to photograph you! I can't wait to meet Baby B.
