Joe and Jennie saw the maternity and newborn photos of their friends, Shawn and Alisha, and liked them so much they hired me to come out to Frazier Park and take their maternity and newborn photos.  Joe and Jennie have been wanting a baby for ten years, so this baby is a special miracle baby for them.  I was so happy to be a part of this special time for them.  Joe and Jennie decorated their nursery in this adorable space theme, so we started the shoot in their cute room.

My favorite shot from the session because this baby truly is their “little miracle”.

Their adorable three little dogs are their first babies, so we had to include them in the shoot.

Then we headed to a nearby park for more shots of the couple together.

This goose kept bugging me toward the end, so I included him in the last frame from the session.

A few weeks ago, I drove up to Valencia for a maternity shoot with Shawn and Alisha and their firstborn: Chancy.  This was one of my favorite maternity shoots because Shawn and Alisha were so relaxed and easygoing.  And they made each other laugh so hard, which made the shoot fun for all of us.

Here’s one of my favorite shots of the day, featuring Chancy.  They already have it framed in their home.

I love this series.  Shawn is so tender with Alisha.

And makes her laugh, which is awesome.

The baby will of course be a Packers fan.

After some portraits at home, we took Chancy for a walk up a trail behind their home.

One of my other favorites.  Chancy is just so adorable!  I’m glad they love her so much that they wanted her in the pictures.

I love the lighting in this one.  Beautiful!

After a quick change, we took a few more portraits in the hills above Valencia.  The colors are so bright and vibrant – I love it!

Alisha has a great laugh and smile – so contagious.  I could hardly take the pictures, I was laughing so much.

Chancy always wanting to steal the show.

Isn’t Alisha stunning?  I wish I looked so vibrant and glowing the final weeks of my pregnancy, instead of swollen and sluggish.

I am so late in posting these that Alisha has just had her baby boy, Braylen.  I will hopefully be posting these adorable newborn shots soon.  Thanks for inviting me into your family during this special time.
