soon-to-be-parents

I hope everyone has had a wonderful memorial day weekend. The weather in Pensacola was delightful amidst a few showers, which helped in keeping the temperatures down. The kids are out of school, and summer is just starting.
For McKenzie and Gary this will be a memorable summer, with the arrival of their first born, little Miss Grey (I love the name). You know, I’m a big advocate of photographing newborns early on, but really I think, all stages of our lives should be documented. When a women has her body so radically transformed by pregnancy, that’s one of those very special “stages” worth safekeeping with the magic of photography. We may not all gain just the few recommended lbs by our practitioner, but nonetheless, the transformation is spectacular, a rare moment in life, a new life growing inside, a miracle of nature, that will only last a few months…
Thank you for allowing me to celebrate the joy of your new life with images.

These 2 are so in love, one little kiss was all it took to have them relax in front of the camera.

Look at these adorable little sandals Mc Kenzie found for Grey, she’ll be so stylish!

    Great! I love the new yellow backdrop in your studio. You will get lots of use out of that. I also LOVE the full length nude image. I am 35 1/2 weeks pregnant. No way am I posing for any nudes now!:) I should have done it with baby number one (like these smart parents). Baby number three I am not feeling so sexy...;)
