This may surprise you, but Ashley's shoot was the first maternity session I have done. Somehow I always ended up taking pictures before people were pregnant or after the baby had arrived. I'm so glad Ashley wanted me to take her pictures! She is so beautiful pregnant.
Every year I get to take pictures of Deirdre's kids. I started babysitting them when I was 13 so I've known them for a long time. It's been fun take pictures of them for the past several years and to see how they have changed as well as my photography.
Christina's oldest son, Anthony was born with a congenital heart defect called hypoplastic right heart and was just weeks away from getting a heart transplant when we took these pictures. He has been home from the hospital for three weeks now and is doing well. I'm so glad I was able to take this wonderful family's pictures. We took them up at BYU's campus. Several of the pictures were taken indoors due to Anthony's health. but we were able to get a few outside.
Amanda won the Mommy Models' contest and received a free photo shoot. She has such an adorable family! I've known her for a few years now and she is such a great person. I'm glad she won so I could take her pictures again.
