Fresh Faces | Mom

Today was extra-special.


{that pregnant glow!}

I met with one of my awesome “Fresh Faces” blog promotion recipients to do her maternity shoot.


AND it was her birthday!   Happy Bday!!!

I had so much fun with A.  She was super relaxed, sweet, and so proud of her perfect belly.  She was 100% willing to go along with all my (sometimes crazy) suggestions, too.  :)   I just had the most relaxing time and enjoyed comparing stories and second-time mom worries and celebrations.  Her 14-month-old son slept through most of our time together, but when he woke up, he was a total gem.  I am thrilled for A, her husband, and little son.  Their soon-to-be born baby girl is already SO loved…I can’t wait to meet her in a couple weeks. 


{i LOVE this pic — i love his little face as mom hugs and kisses him with all her might.  she completely adores this little man, and it shows}

A–Thank you so very much for having me today.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself!  I have SO many more images that I just love!  I can’t wait to show you them all.   ~m

    Oh my gosh Maggie! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures so far!! They brought tears to my eyes (happy ones of course)!

    What a GREAT idea with the belly and the booties!! I really enjoyed our time together today! You made me feel so comfortable and gorgeous in all my pregnant glory (ha ha ha ha) And you are just sweet as pie! What a great birthday present!

    Thank you so much for taking some pictures of T, I know he wasn’t the focus of our shoot. I had a great time and look forward to having you again when the baby gets here!

    If these photos are an indication of what else you captured, I am going to die waiting to see the rest!

    Thank you again so much for this opportunity! I can’t tell you how much it means to me, I only hope it shows in the final results!

    Talk soon :)

    Thanks for your comments, ladies, and Amber I can’t wait to see you with that new little baby of yours. Here’s to a speedy and safe delivery.

    I like the one showing her fingertips on her belly — looks like those itty-bitty covered buttons that go down the back of a wedding dress.
    They’re all great pictures.
