The Gomes Family - Newborn Family Photos

First she was "Baby Pickle".
Then she was, "It's a girl!!!"
And then there were three.

The Roy Family - Higuera Ranch Family Photos

Almost 2 years ago, Drew & Renee celebrated their wedding day at this very ranch,
and last week we celebrated their new family in the same hills.

Getting to continue documenting a couple's love story is truly one of the greatest parts about my job.

(Venue: Higuera Ranch)

Trevor & Lindsey - Pregnancy Photos

You only get a handful of "soul mates" in this life. Lindsey is one of mine. Trevor is one of hers. And soon, she's going to meet her 3rd soul mate -- the little bundle of life-changing-ness in her womb. My eyes are seriously stinging with feels as I write this. You see, I met Lindsey 6 years ago when I desperately needed someone who understood this photography part of my life. She gets me in a way not even my HUSBAND does (which is why we have fondly coined the term "work wife" for one another). And in just 4 short weeks (give or take), she is not only going to join the mom club, but the "run a photography business from home while being a mom" club. And I am selfishly SO HAPPY to welcome another member. I love these two souls more than words can ever express, and I am over the moon to witness them make the transition into parenthood. They're going to be SO kickass at it.

David & Nicole - Harmony, CA

I'm not saying I didn't enjoy photographing pregnancy before I had a baby of my own, but compared to how greatly I love documenting this transition NOW versus THEN -- it is night and day. I consider it the highest honor to be invited into the last remaining moments of a couple's life before it is forever changed.

Sean & Stephanie {Montana De Oro, CA}

When I asked Sean & Stephanie what they were looking forward to most about being parents, they said, "We just can't wait to meet her, and see what she looks like."

Instantly, I was transported back to being 9 months pregnant feeling those same feels (minus the morning sickness, thank GOD) -- spending every waking thought wondering what kind of human being my daughter would be, and being so restless because I just couldn't wait to have her out of my body and into my arms.

I see pregnancy in an entirely different light now, and documenting this insane part of a couple's love story is even more powerful to me than ever before.
