This sweet family has been with me since the very beginning of my business. They brought their 5 week old baby girl to me when I was just getting my feet wet in the photography business. They were my very first ‘stranger session’ and I was SO nervous. I remember studying lighting and posing like a mad woman the week leading up to their baby’s newborn session. At that time, I had zero clue that it was hard to do a ‘newborn’ session on a 5 week old. :) When the big day came, I quickly realized that I had NOTHING to worry about. These are some of the most laid back, friendly, and downright wonderful people you could be lucky enough to meet. I have fond memories of that session and meeting these amazing people.
Baby Nohl’s big birthday is approaching quickly, and we obsessively planned a ‘snowy maternity session’ for Ronne. He is a long awaited blessing and I couldn’t be more thrilled for such a wonderful, loving family. Little Nohl has no idea yet how lucky he is!
Ronne & family moved to the Phoenix area a few years ago, so we met in the middle near Flagstaff to do her maternity pictures. This location was an absolute gem of a find. I decided on the drive out (no pre-scouting was done due to the distance involved) that I wanted to find a grove of aspen trees in the snow. I thought the white on white would make a very pretty backdrop to show off that gorgeous baby belly of her’s. Nothing like a specific demand, huh? As we pulled into Williams/Flagstaff area, we stumbled across a ranger station while exploring a back road and found a nice lady working on her pickup truck. We got some great inside advice on where to find exactly what I was looking for. Despite a blown tire on the drive (I am SO glad my husband was with me on this trip), we found the PERFECT spot for Ronne’s maternity pictures. It is a wonderful thing to see a vision you had in your head for months beforehand come to life, and these pictures do that and more for me. I am SO excited for this family and cannot wait to meet baby Nohl. <3
Sweetest little family you will ever meet… I adore this girl! <3 The lighting was just magical… We both love the flare that circled itself perfectly around her belly… Ahh…just gorgeous! I absolutely ADORE this… We were already finished with the session, when I saw the last minutes of golden light disappearing behind the horizon on the drive out. I pulled off to the side of the road and we flagged them down to do a few last shots of sweet Lucienne. So glad we did! And because these guys are so special to me, I thought I’d put up a quick walk down memory lane for them. <3
A favorite from our first session together…Miss Lucienne’s ‘newborn’ session at 5 weeks old…
Her 6 month session…. And last but not least, a few favorites from her 1 year session. <3 I hope you guys enjoyed these, and I cannot wait to meet your new little boy! Now flip over into a head down position Mr. Nohl! hehe
