Himmelberg Maternity

It's not every day you get to photograph your best friend's maternity session, but celebrating sweet Nora Grace in Arkansas a few weeks ago gave me the chance to do just that!  Molly and Mark are due any day now and I.CANNOT.WAIT. It has been so fun--even from a distance--to watch these two--er, THREE--grow over the past 10 months.  Nora Grace is beyond blessed with these two as her parents and I am equally blessed to call them friends. Enjoy!

As if one pregnancy weren't exciting enough, Molly & Mark's sweet friends, John & Ashley ALSO announced their pregnancy this weekend! I was honored to snap a few announcement shots for them and capture some "best friend maternity" photos (that's a thing, right? ;)).  So excited for you, John & Ashley!

And, of course, not to be left out: Big Brother Truman. :)

Molly & Mark,

You guys already know how much I love you! Thank you for trusting me with these photos and thank you for bringing Nora into this world! I cannot wait to meet her and see you both as the incredible parents I know you will be.  Love you both!

Until next time!


Lauren & Mark: Maternity

I'm a little behind schedule in posting these photos, but, for once, I'm happy that I hadn't yet put these up because something very interesting has happened since this day!  Lauren, Mark, & I met up a few weeks ago and they were so fun to photograph.  They were SO excited about their baby girl.  Yesterday, Mark and Lauren delivered their baby and, as fate would have it, IT'S A BOY! What a crazy, fun surprise! Enjoy these photos, everyone, and Mark & Lauren: save those pink shoes for baby #2! :)

Lauren & Mark,

Congratulations on your new addition and I hope things are settling down after the big surprise.  Can't wait to photograph your baby boy next week!

Until next time!


Mackenzi & Ross: Maternity

This post is long overdue, but still totally worth sharing! :)  Mackenzi and Ross recently brought their sweet baby girl, Frances Jo ("Franni"--how adorable is that?), into the world and these photos are from a few weeks prior when we met for their maternity session.  The pure joy on the faces of these two is making me smile right now as I post these.  I know they'll be incredible parents.  Enjoy, everyone!

This next photo is one of my favorites.  THAT'S what pregnant should feel like ALL THE TIME, am I right?  Pure. Joy.

Mackenzi & Ross,

Thanks for being such an awesome couple to photograph.  You made for a very fun session! :) Congratulations on your beautiful daughter; I am so happy for you both! 

Until next time!
