You might remember this lovely lady from her wedding earlier this year. She is my beautiful friend Michelle, and I am so thrilled for her and her husband to be expecting their first daughter (a honeymoon baby, no less) any day now. Michelle’s session combined two of my favorite things to shoot – boudoir and maternity. I think there are two times in a woman’s life when she exudes the essence of beauty, on her wedding day and during pregnancy. I am beyond fortunate that I get to capture these truly priceless times for clients and friends. I obviously know first-hand how important and wonderful it is to have these memories captured, because you do forget — the memories start to fade in your mind and it’s such a treasure to be able to look back and remember exactly how you looked, and how you felt. And one day it will be so special for baby Ella to look back on these photos and see how beautiful and radiant her mama was when she was waiting for her. Congratulations Michelle and Peter, I simply can’t wait to meet your sweet little girl!
