when one of my besties, beth, asked me take her maternity photos, i was both excited and nervous about it. i won't name any specifics, but we've all seen those cringeworthy maternity photoshoots...ha you know the ones i'm talking about...and i really wanted to avoid that. because i think when done right, they can be really fun, pretty photos to document that time in a lady's life. and i'm so happy with how these turned out! we shot them up big cottonwood canyon and the colors were incredible. plus it helped that this lady is a real beauty! she and her husband, strater, were so much fun to work with and i cannot wait to meet their bound-to-be-beautiful baby boy :)
