Jessica, Brandon & the unborn Baby Kendall — maternity photography

One of the best things about my job is getting to follow and document my clients’ lives through all kinds of exciting events — engagements, weddings, pregnancies, growing families. So I was thrilled when Brandon — a former wedding client — contacted me about photographing Jessica, her baby bump and him. Even better, we scheduled our photo shoot on their one-year anniversary. And best of all, it was a surprise gift for Jessica! (He told her ahead of time to treat herself to a cute maternity outfit and then told her why the morning of our shoot.

Jessica had spent weeks and weeks on bed rest through a difficult stretch in her pregnancy. So it was even more enjoyable to make some beautiful images of her in the final weeks as she awaited the arrival of her daughter, Kendall.

Here are some of my favorites from our afternoon:


This was the third time I’ve photographed Jessica and still, I can never get over how big her eyes are. Just gorgeous!


It was pretty chilly and — as was much of October this year — gray and looking like it was about to rain. But we snuck outside for a few shots in their backyard to catch some of the fall foliage.


Congratulations, Jessica & Brandon. I’m so thrilled that Kendall made her way safely and happily into the world. I can’t wait for the next shoot some day — family portraits!
