2018 marks the coldest start to spring I can remember. After barely snowy, but still wet winter, it snowed on the second day of spring. I’m not usually one to rush out into the snow–but if I can take photos, that changes my perspective about the cold stuff.
With the snow prediction looming the day before, there was time to arrange a quick maternity photo session for our snow day. It was cold, of course–but worth it!
I have had the pleasure of photographing this little lady and her family since her mama was pregnant with her. Take a look at her baby plan recap and don’t miss the most recent photos from her first birthday session too.
Her big brothers spent some time of their family maternity session exploring the woods and searching for frogs.
The whole family also visited the studio for Newborn + Family photos after Gwen was born. Mama asked me to stack her siblings, so we did!
Little Ms. Cupcake also came to see me for her 6 month sitter milestone as well as holiday photos.
One baby sometimes isn’t enough and her relatives were in town for the Thanksgiving holiday so they came along for an extended family session too!
Gwen was crawling at 9 months, and standing assisted, mama was sure to document those milestones!
The real reason you’re here though is because Gwen turned ONE! She came in for her 12 month photos and has grown from standing assisted to assisted walking. This little lady wanted to push mini chairs and stools all over the studio for her session! Her mama is a baker and brought along a smash cake as well as an adorable cupcake banner made by Creigh-ations. She knew what to do with her cake too and was happy to have it all to herself!

Oh how I loved taking these maternity photos! I photographed little Catie Jo when she was born and am so happy that her family is now expecting a baby brother. I look forward to meeting their baby boy for photos when he is born in just a few weeks.
Look at their outfits! I have a small collection of maternity gowns I offer for expecting mamas to wear. This mama went a step above though and found her very own through one of my favorite vendors. Catie girl is always sporting the very best monograms so of course she was wearing an adorable monogrammed dress. Papa was dressed in the most perfect complimentary plaid.
This family has a set of angel twins so it was important to incorporate them in a special way. Pink and purple signify Abby and Brooke, sisters born far too soon at 20 weeks gestation but forever in their family.
