35 weeks

One of Meredith's baby shower gifts was me. Her dear friend gave her a maternity and newborn session as a gift because she did not document her own pregnancy and wish she had. While you are pregnant, you feel it will never end. But after the birth, you can barely remember what you looked like pregnant. During my own pregnancy, I photographed myself every few weeks and I cherish all those photos. Even though at times I did not feel so pretty, I still documented the change and I am so happy I did.

I love Meredith's expression in the last image. Authentic and real.

GAS • Saturday July 26th

GAS stands for Garden Art Show. It is one the best things to do in the summer and should not be missed. This will be my fourth year donating and my photo is from a recent trip back to Vermont on an early foggy morning. Usually, I walk home with too much art which is not a bad thing. However, I still need to hang what I bought last summer.

Founded in 2002, The Garden Art Show is an annual silent auction benefiting local charities in Boulder County, Colorado. Thanks to generous donations by brilliant local artists (from full-time professionals to inspired amateurs and undiscovered newcomers), all proceeds from sales of the art go to children's art and nature causes. In its first five years, the GAS has raised over $9,000, entertained hundreds of good people, put lots of great art in worthy homes, and decimated local supplies for jambalaya and mojitos.

Alexis is 19 weeks old and she already has a big beautiful smile. Her grandparents were visiting from Wisconsin so we had three generations of strong women present. That is special.

Thanks for having me come back to capture Alexis at this amazing time of her life. To see a slide show from the day, click HERE.

almost there

I met Joyce last week and we had so much fun during her maternity session. She was open and willing to try anything during the session even traipsing in a field with a ton of mosquitoes. A glowing mom-to-be and so excited with the soon arrival of her son, we documented this last phase of pregnancy before moving into motherhood.

In only a few weeks I will be back to capture her son first few weeks of life. I will be looking for the email announcing his arrival. Best wishes, Joyce.
