Seila is expecting her third baby and we did an outdoor session this time around. I have captured Seila’s first baby girl as a newborn and documented her second pregnancy and second baby boy as a newborn. When Seila booked her maternity+newborn bundle for her third baby, it made me completely happy and honored!! It is always a beautiful feeling to capture these kind of journeys but watching a family grow over the years is so extra special!! She is glowing and looking so great and beautiful. Check her out:

Carmen’s mini maternity session is one of the most special and emotional sessions in my career. Carmen lost her husband a few months ago and she is expecting their second child together; a baby girl! Losing your best friend/companion is one of the hardest experiences and I can’t imagine the pain she feels everyday. I captured their first pregnancy together in 2013 and I knew this pregnancy needed to be captured. He may not be physically here but I made sure to add him in a few photos for Carmen. Check it out:
