Ah, the last of a string of simply gorgeous moms-to-be.  Well, the last for now:).  Kirsten is due in just two weeks, and she just glows.  I can tell baby Ella is 100% adored already.

I can’t wait to meet your little one!

So, February is the month of mamas-to-be.  It’s been so, so much fun sharing in the excitement and anticipation with all these beautiful women and families–and I have one more to photograph tonight:).  March is going to be chock full of brand new little people for me to snuggle for a few hours and I can’t wait.

By way of announcement, I am going to be out of the office beginning tomorrow afternoon through the end of this month.  If you are waiting on an order, it should be ready the first week of March–right when I get back.  I will not be answering emails or taking phone inquiries until March, but if you are one of the gorgeous women waiting for your March surprise to arrive, and that surprise decides to show up in February, don’t hesitate to let me know!

And now for the images, I had so much fun with beautiful mom-to-be Jessica on Saturday.  She brought an ultrasound image of baby boy Maddox and my goodness, he is beyond adorable already!  I just can wait to meet him and squish his little cheeks:).

Lee and Jessica, it was a privilege–see you very soon!

So this blog post is long, long, long overdue.  Back in December I had the opportunity to photograph my brilliant and beautiful good friend and colleague Ashley Putz of Ashley Brown Photography.  Ashley was the first photographer I met when I moved to New York.  She photographed Jack’s birth and our whole family a few weeks after Jack arrived, and for that I will be eternally grateful.  Ashley was expecting her first baby, due in February of this year–actually just over a week ago.  Baby Greta had her own set of plans, though, and the day after Ashley’s session she was admitted into the hospital due to some pregnancy complications and Greta arrived a few short days later.  I was so, so grateful that Greta held off long enough for us to capture just how beautiful her mama was while pregnant.  It’s always a special experience to photograph another photographer.  There is this wonderful level of trust that just puts everyone at ease and makes the session flow so nicely.  Now that my computer is up and running again, I can’t wait to get through the whole session (it’s taken way, way too long to get these to you, Ashley, and for that I sincerely apologize), but for now, here’s a little taste of what’s to come:).

I think this might be my most favorite image from the whole session. I just adore the connection here… sigh.

Baby Greta has had a bit of a rough welcome to the world, but I can’t wait to meet her and capture the love that I already know exists for this wonderful new family. She’s an amazing little person:).

Yes, I am still here.  My old computer, however, is not.  After about 3 weeks of trying to figure out if it could be resuscitated and then waiting for the new one to arrive, we are up and running again:).  And posting beautiful images.  Like the ones I have today of gorgeous, gorgeous mom-to-be Kate.  Seriously, she wears pregnancy so very well, and I just can’t wait to meet her baby girl in a couple of weeks.  I feel beyond lucky to have shared this exciting time with such a beautiful family.
