Mell Bell’s Belly days (hours?) before delivery!

We are on standby to take Mell Bell to the hospital any day now!  We did a bunch of family shoots out on the beach today and took a few moments to do some last minute maternity portraits.

I love those ladies 🙂

Melly Belly!

My lovely Mell Bell, will be my baby momma in May, they say!  And we’re having a girl, which calls for a tutu maternity portrait 🙂

I love those ladies.

Pregnant Mommy Kicks Back in Maternity Portrait Session

This mommy is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and even teaches classes. He’ll be coming to the local dojo kicking beside his mommy late this September.

Can I just say I love maternity sessions?!

Last week, Linsey came into the studio for a last minute maternity session! I (Valerie) say “last minute” because she is 36 weeks (now 37 weeks) and is expecting a baby girl!

There is such amazing beauty in expecting a child! It’s such an honor for me to be the one chosen to capture it with my camera.

Here are my top 3 favorites from Linsey’s shoot:




Also, this is a GREAT time to mention that our studio has decided to start doing FREE maternity sessions! 

*We will also do a free newborn shoot for your baby up to 6 weeks of age!*

So now all you mommies-to-be have no excuses! 🙂
