As photographers, we get to watch the most important moments in our client's lives as their families grow. The best thing is when we photograph a couple's engagement and wedding and then get to document their maternity and beyond.

I met Daniel and Phylicia through Daniel's sister years ago and I feel so blessed to have been along side through some of the biggest moments of their lives from engagement to wedding and now to expecting their first child.  These two melt my heart!

Mrs. Petersen is one of those ladies that just GLOWS in her pregnancy. Carrying Julian is treating her so well (despite what she might tell you about the cramps and trouble sleeping). This mama is gorgeous and photographing their maternity shoot was a total joy.

When doing maternity photos I think it's important to mix it up - to get some shots of mom and dad together, capturing this incredible time in their relationship as they are about to add to their family, but to also capture mom alone with her baby bump.

While not all mamas-to-be are interested in baring their bellies during this growing phase, and that's totally understandable, Phylicia is feeling more confident than ever and it was important to her to capture this amazing time in her life with some images that will last forever. I can't wait to meet baby Petersen, due next week!
