maternity session

My sister's best friend asked if I would take some maternity photos for her & I have to admit I was so nervous about doing this & it was a huge step out of my comfort zone. I have never really taken pictures for anyone else & the old me would have somehow backed out for sure, but I have lived long enough letting my fears take over & not doing things because it felt uncomfortable or scary. I am so glad that I sucked it up & did this & I hope to keep stepping out, pushing myself, & become more comfortable with being uncomfortable.

This family is incredibly sweet, SO much fun, & I could feel the love they all have for each other. They are a beautiful family & I can't wait to meet their new addition soon!

 My mom & Kennadie came along & I promised Kennadie that when we were done we would go walk in the water near the waterfall.

And this is how excited she was about that...

i have absolutely no idea what she is doing with her hands but she was one happy little girl :)

Being here with my mom reminds me of how we spent so many of our days when my sister & I were growing up. Our parents always took us fishing, for walks in the woods, exploring new places, summer days that were spent down by the reservoir with our dog, canoeing. It means the world to me that my family is so involved in our lives still & that we are doing the same type of activities with Kennadie as we did when I was her age. It was such a nice ending to our weekend.
