Josh + Elyse

I felt like I got the last of the sun last Monday evening. I was so excited about my outdoor maternity session with Elyse and Josh, and the weather made it that much better.

This sweet little babe is due in just a few weeks and I can not wait to photograph him or her.

My passion for maternity and newborn sessions only continues to grow. I have to admit they are my favorite.

As the Winter months approach I am stewing over business plans to keep me occupied for the season, and maternity + newborns tie right in. As I mentioned in a post on Instagram the biggest goal I have this Winter is to blog a lot more. And not just blog photos such as this, but blog about life!

Back in 2012 when I got my first camera this was my big goal. I had started a blog called “dear love, shine on” (I still love the name) and my plan was to blog, and learn to take photos for my blog. I was constantly irritated by the idea of using google images just to have a photo on my blog. As a photographer, although there are so many “free” images out there, crediting anyone for any work they do is super important to me. So as easy as it is to scroll through google, find just about anything I want and slap it on my blog (these not being photographers work, but vector images, quote prints etc.) I still struggled to do so. So quickly I made the dedication to take my own photos!

Although what started out as a passion for blogging quickly turned into reigniting my highschool passions for photography, and although I love what I do everyday I still have this desire to blog. So although I have some ideas, I am hoping I can execute them this Winter before baby number 2 arrives! I feel like I am taking a huge leap and I hope you enjoy what is in store.

The wedding season is over and the Winter season has begun so here are Elyse + Josh on the blog today, just killing it at their maternity shoot this past Monday! Again, can not wait to meet this baby!
