Pregnancy is such a special, incomparable experience. But I know that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easy. Many mamas go through so much, and it can be a difficult time. But knowing that a child is growing inside and feeling those kicks, wiggles, and hiccups help us push past the morning sickness, aching backs, and restless sleep. Those reminders help us fight through any complications that may arise with hope and determination. We put ourselves aside because of the deeper desire to care for and cherish the little one blossoming inside. And all of it is so very worth it the moment we hear that first cry and feel that soft little body snuggled up close. This is what we’ve waited nine long months for!
It doesn’t matter if parents awaiting their first child or their fifth, that eager anticipation and joy-filled wonder is the same. We just can’t wait to meet that little child and see what he or she looks like and discover their personality as they grow. Will he look more like Mom or Dad? Will she have the same curly hair like her sister? Will he be boisterous and playful or calm and thoughtful? We can’t wait to find out!
Can you believe this beautiful lady is a third-time mama?! Alexx is just radiant, and looked stunning in every dress she tried on during her maternity shoot. We did an outdoor session, which turned out so beautifully. I always love how dreamy overhanging tree branches look in maternity sessions. Mother Nature always provides the most beautiful backdrops. We even had a picturesque pond for these photos. Alexx looks just a peaceful and calm during her pregnancy as the serene water behind her. I love the photos of her son and daughter hugging and kissing her belly. I think those two are more than ready to meet their new sibling. I’m sure they will be the three musketeers, always giving mom and dad a run for their money, but they’ll also be the best of friends.
We also did some very sweet portraits of Alexx and her handsome husband. They look so in love and ready to meet their little bundle of joy. Of course, we also did several shots of Alexx on her own to highlight her pregnancy and growing bump. She’s in the home stretch now and more dazzling than ever. I love the portrait of her resting elegantly on a tree branch like a scene from a fairytale.
Congratulations, Alexx and family! I am so very excited for you all and can’t wait to see your sweet little love!
