Oh my, I just have no words. I am happy to call this beautiful woman a friend of mine, and it goes without saying that her beauty will just blow you away. When she first announced she was pregnant, we started making plans right away for her maternity pictures.. and I knew that she needed something extra magical… maybe even ethereal and whimsical… and lucky for me, she was open to anything =)  If only she knew what she was getting herself into!

And of course, the morning of our shoot the clouds rolled in and an ominous summer monsoon was threatening to appear… but we went ahead with our plans, and Steph amazed me with every click of my camera with just how stunning she was. A truly beautiful woman on the inside and out {and a NICU nurse, so she gets extra bonus points! 😉 } she is also going to make a wonderful mother. And she’ll always be able to look back at the days when she was pregnant with their first … when they would daydream about the adventures that lie ahead of them … and she frolicked in fields with giant balloons 😉  Doesn’t everybody?

Steph, you are such a fun and beautiful woman, and I can’t wait to watch you experience your new adventure of being a mom! Thank you for making this session so much fun- you guys are the best!

xoxo, Bri
