Maternity shoots are seriously one of my favorite things to shoot. I really like the feeling of making an expecting mother look and feel her best. It's so common for women to feel uncomfortable in front of the camera during this time where physically they don't feel their greatest but I like to do everything in my power to make them realize how beautiful they really look. Capturing the natural beauty and happiness of an expecting woman is what I strive for and I'm so happy when I hear their feedback telling me how good they really looked.

Jessica is one of my longtime college friends and is expecting a little boy soon! She's also someone who normally hates being in front of the camera, but from the look of these photos you would never know that! She was a natural and is such a beautiful mommy to be.
