I was so honored to have the opportunity to shoot Monica's maternity session last night. I have so enjoyed watching her grow into such an incredible and selfless mother. This is a motherhood so gentle and so full of love that it is hard to put into words. I've known Monica and have been friends with her since we were just in middle school. She is and always has been a wonderful and amazing person; always there for a good laugh or chat. So grateful that after all of these years we can get together to capture memories like this and swap fun stories about parenthood.
Monica asked to do this maternity session as a surprise for her husband; a secret that was quite hard for me to keep! Perfect rolling clouds, bright colored skies, lush greens, and nothing but smiles from all; even the horse! It was like a scene from 'The Sound of Music.' A photographer's dream for sure!
Not only was the atmosphere dreamlike, but her gorgeous children were as well. You can tell that they are surrounded by nothing but joy, peace, and unconditional love.
