Whitney & John | Hampton Maternity Photography

Let me warn you, I feel some sentimental-emotional stuff comin' on. Just tellin' ya...

I met these two on the beach yesterday morning. The weather was perfect, the light was beautiful, and the beach was empty. I don't think we could have asked for much more.

There's something so amazing about these maternity shoots and the couples that request them. I have been absolutely floored by the amount of emotion my couples have been willing to share with me. It humbles me. So much. I love maternity shots. I love the anticipation and the excitement each couple feels in their own special way for the life that they've created. It's unbelievable.

So here we go...

Whitney is so photogenic. And glowing. She's just glowing!

John... you're not all that bad yourself ;)

Talk about brave. These two got IN the water. It's nice and warm outside here in VA these days, but the water is still C-O-L-D. Troopers! And I didn't even suggest this... nope, this was all their idea! Which is absolutely why they're my new best friends. For ever. And Always. Amen.

Saved this one for last. As I'm editing, this is my favorite so far. I get a little emotional looking at it... I love it. And I wish I had something like this hanging in my room... *sigh* hindsight is 20/20...

Thanks guys for an awesome morning! There are SO MANY more amazing shots. I can't wait to show them to you! Soon... soon!

Until next time,

So, yesterday morning was a great morning... for a while anyway... I got up early while all the boys were in bed. I was able to drink a cup of coffee and watch the crabbers check their traps in the harbor. I spent some time on the internet and got ready for my shoot... it was relaxing and great.

Then I left.

And apparently my husband temporarily lost his mind...

Because when I returned, my baby looked like this:

DJ, fancying himself a barber, decided to "cut" Noah's hair. He said, "Well, YOU said it needed to be cut!" Yes, NOT shaved!


So, we (DJ, myself, and the neighbors) can't quite decide who he resembles most... blog readers, you can help... here are the candidates:

It's a bit of a tough call for me. I haven't quite decided, but I have taken to calling him "Dalai". You know, like, "What are you doing in the fridge you silly dalai?" or "Get your water dalai..."

Here's a few more pics of the bald baby just in case you need some reference material...

Help us decide people.

And lambaste DJ when you see him next...

And, hats, yes... we'll need some hats for his oversized-melon-head otherwise he'll be all kinds of sunburned...

Until next time,
