Mommy Makeover Nominee: Anita

This amazing mom has been nominated by her daughter, Jessica.

"My mother Anita is for sure in need of a day all about her. She has been there through every trial and tribulation that not only I have caused, but also those that have come upon me. She uprooted her life to move with me when I needed her to look after my kids for an Army assignment, she stood by my side and looked after my babies while I had to undergo 3 c-sections and 3 brain surgeries. She is always there for me whenever I need her and never says no even though she has a full time job on her feet all day and is suffering from massive pain from fibromyalgia. She truly is my hero and I love her unconditionally and honestly feel she deserves a day to be all about her. Please vote for my very well deserving MOM!"


Let's celebrate this amazing momma!

Good luck, Anita!

Baby G

All of the tired cliches about spring are true. It's a time of new life, beginnings, and starting fresh as the world wakes up. The trees are just beginning to bloom and flowers are opening bright petals to the waiting world. Spring is also a messy time, but all birth is messy. It's a fitting metaphor, then, that the maternity photos for "baby G" should take place during a spring morning surrounded by blooms and new life.

I had such good time photographing these two, and was so enchanted by the scenery of Cochrane Park here in Yelm, that I kept making ridiculous noises (that can best be described as a "squee") every time I caught a shot that I KNEW was going to be enchanting. Here are a few of my favorites from the session...

Of course, they had to take some time out to be silly! Can't you just see them aboard the Titanic!?

Um...romantic, much!? They are so sweet together.

I am so in love with this photo! She's so lovely, and with the leaves of the blossoms falling... it just makes me happy. I'm pretty sure this photo was worthy of a good squee.

And my favorite simply for the gorgeous scenery...

Congratulations Mom and Dad-to-be! Baby G is going to be one lucky and much loved little fella!
