danielle and thomas: maternity.

i first met danielle and thomas when we started attending the same church a few years ago. they are always so great to spend time with, so they were a perfect couple to photograph.

the elliotts are expecting their first baby in july, and i was honored to capture them together (with their first "baby" papaya) last weekend at the denver botanical gardens and chessman park.

baby peanut is lucky to have such amazing parents.

kayla and ryan: maternity.

i had such a great time yesterday with kayla and ryan, exploring their neighborhood and snapping photos along the way. they are expecting their first baby in just a couple months, and i am so excited for them. i have no doubt that they will be amazing parents. and since kayla and i are in book club together, i know that baby will definitely be a reader! 

sam and becki: maternity.

i met becki and sam over a year ago at church, only to find out becki and i are from the same hometown!  good old rockford, illinois. a special bond was formed that day.

a bond that only belongs to those who understand the rockford symbol, beef a roo, perryville, cross current, and crime rates.

our friendship was meant to be. 

i was so happy to be able to take maternity pictures for them this past weekend. even though rain and lightening decided to make an appearance an hour in, we still got some great shots and had a lot of fun in the process. and the best part? becki is having TWINS!

i can't wait to meet this little boy and girl! with such awesome parents, they are luuuucky.
