Rustic Fall Maternity Session


When Jessica reached out to me to take her maternity photos I was both extremely flattered and also pretty nervous. Photography has always been a hobby of mine that I pursue through my blog. I have been asked before if I am a photographer and usually I just giggled and brushed it off. Today I am thinking that it could possibly become more than just a hobby for my blog, as I enjoyed scouting out the location, finding the best lighting and getting to know Jessica and Geoff better as a couple.

These two beauties are expecting their first little bundle of love very soon. I have known Jessica for a number of years, as we worked together serving at a restaurant. Jessica always made me laugh, she was someone I could go to when I was both excited and had a funny story to tell or sad and frustrated. Having the pleasure to capture the love these to have and the little baby belly that Jessica very stunningly carries was such a highlight.

  • Real life workouts with our babes. It's not always easy, but it is always worth it.
Thanks for joining this workout @roxannredekop

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.
This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.
For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on⠀
