Andrea + her stylish bump, maternity

Not only is she an INCREDIBLY gifted musician, she’s a self proclaimed “style nerd.” So, when she received my text saying, “Hey Andrea, can you style an adorable maternity shoot for yourself the week before you have a baby?”… she didn’t skip a beat! For anyone who has ever had a baby, you know how busy the week before baby is! You also know how you feel the week before baby comes so I was incredibly impressed with this lady!:)

She brought an array of adorable clothes to choose from but the cool part was, none of them were maternity clothes. When I was pregnant, I also never wore maternity clothes except for the occasional prego jeans…. but only because the hair tie holding my pants together was screaming for mercy near the end. For those of you who are expecting, this is a great shoot to get some ideas on how to look and feel cute, even when you are sporting a basketball under your clothes!

BIG thank you to Amanda Guilmette for some fabulous hair and makeup!

Ellen and Mark, engaged!

The playful energy between this adorable couple makes me so happy! Ellen and Mark spent the evening with Ted, photographing their incredible connection. Really, engagement photos are a celebration of your choice to commit to each other. To celebrate the choice to spend the rest of your life together. I think these two have that part down. They were ready to celebrate!

Mark actually reminds me a lot of Ted. He has an uncanny ability to make me laugh… a lot. Boy is it an incredible ability to have in marriage. Good  job, Mark!

For this session, we were excited when Maggie and Charlie rented an adorable cabin in the woods! It was fabulous for them to have a weekend getaway and what a perk that we were able to use it for photos!
