Samantha, Curt and Baby P *Maternity* {Soon-to-Be!}

I had been incredibly excited for this session for a long time and so, when the wind was blowing, huge snowflakes were falling and it was maybe not so great to travel, I was really disappointed for a reschedule.  However, the following weekend proved to be an absolutely gorgeous sunny 35 degrees (hey, it IS Wisconsin!) and the wind seemed to be almost nonexistent as we got started with this beautiful maternity session.

Samantha and I had been meeting for quite a few months preparing her maternity timeline leading up to this session at 36 weeks.  Throughout this time I learned that Samantha and Curt were keeping themselves very busy with volleyball and home renovations, and keeping their baby name a big ol' secret!  Their home is coming together nicely and their name is still a secret and I remembered one thing I knew about this couple from the past, they sure are a blast and are up, for just about anything :)

I had a wonderful session Samantha and Curt, and I really, really can't wait to meet Baby P!  I'm sure he is going to be absolutely adorable and I'm telling you right now, he's gonna sleep for me.  Isn't that right, Mr Baby P? I'll see you all very soon!

I'm HUGE on gorgeous landscapes and even more so on landscaped black and whites.  This real moment was beautiful in color, but it's stunning in black and white.  Samantha and Curt haven't received their images yet, but I have! And this 8x16 is even more amazing in print.

Samantha is without a doubt as beautiful pregnant as not and that smile shines even brighter! &nbsp;This is another stolen moment, laughing at Curt. &nbsp;Gorgeous.

Nicholas is 4 years old! {Littles!}

My husband and I have some of the most adorable nieces and nephews ever (Although, I could be biased)  It's been my honor to photograph many of them throughout the years.  One of these adorable Littles is Nicholas, who turned 4 a week ago :)

This adorable little dude loves cars, specifically all Mustangs, and loves to help grandma in the garden pruning flowers and picking raspberries and he is oh, so sweet.  We had some fun running around Crystal Lake Park and posing with dad.  He enjoyed many Tootsie Rolls for smiling nice and it was, as always, a wonderful time.  Thank you Nicholas and happy birthday again little dude!

Mrs R {Boudoir}

This amazing, confident client contacted me for her 25th wedding anniversary.  The challenge?  Create something amazing for her husband's gift.  He's on the road a lot and she wanted something special he could take with him.  So mini albums it is! 

Boudoir is something, I'll admit, that I haven't had the opportunity to photograph a lot of.  But this session proved many things to me.  First, that I really can do anything I put my mind to.  Second, that I have some of the most amazing clients ever, and I really do love getting to know each and every one of them.  And finally, that there are women out there that truly do love themselves for who they are.  You see, all too often I hear gorgeous women critique themselves negatively.  But Mrs R looked right at my retouch clause and said 'I don't want to be retouched, this is who I am.'  I was floored.  Here's a woman saying to me, don't edit me, and I admire her for her confidence. 

Session day came with oodles of fun outfits, some great background music, and smiles and posing galore.  Without further a-do, I give you, Mrs R.

Mrs R really wanted a few images with her wedding dress, which still fit! &nbsp;So she brought it out of its box, where it's been carefully stored for nearly 25 years, put it on, and we created a little magic. &nbsp;There are many, many more, but I love the softness of this stunning black and white image.
