Maternity Portraits – Emily & CJ

I love getting to photograph maternity portrait sessions because there is just something so beautiful about that anticipation and love growing stronger each day as you wait to meet your child. It’s an honor for me to get to capture that moment in time so that when that child grows up, they can look back on how loved they were, even before they were born. To be able to see how their mama glowed, and how their daddy looked at her.

Getting to freeze those moments for my brother and sister-in-law? Y’all. It doesn’t get much better.

Add in some gorgeous weather, bluebonnets and a perfectly beautiful central-Texas backdrop and I was in heaven!

A quick stop on the side of the road for some bluebonnet shots? Yes, please.

CJ’s not at all excited to become a dad… (please tell me you can sense the sarcasm!?)

So my mom kept CJ’s baby shoes, and there was just something about seeing Emily hold those little sneakers in front of her belly that got me sooooo excited to meet my nephew! (Can we also just take a second to let that sink in? My NEPHEW!)

Of course we had to get photos with their first baby, Rocko. And when he looked up at his soon-to-be little brother, my heart just kinda melted. Such a sweet boy!

This book? I can’t even really think about it too much without getting teary-eyed, y’all. And I know I’m not the only one!

Emily was a soccer player through college, so in addition to CJ’s stuff I had to make sure we got a few shots in for Emily, too! I know she’s going to have so much fun getting to teach her little man how to play soccer, and after seeing her play with Peanut, I know he’s lucky to have a pretty great coach!

Another shot for Emily – with the onesie that says “Daddy and I agree Mom’s the boss” – you can see how CJ feels about it! And you know we couldn’t be serious the whole time… so we had to snag a few of their “signature” pose haha!

Such a sweet moment – these two are going to be amazing parents, y’all.

CJ & Emily, thank you so much for being such a blessing in my life, and for giving me the blessing of becoming an aunt. I really appreciate getting to be the one to help lock these moments in time for you to be able to look back on once your son is grown.

I love you both and can’t wait to meet the newest addition to the family.

  1. The pictures are awesome and Emily is absolutely beautiful! You can see the anticipation and love on CJ’s face. They are going to be great parents and I can’t wait to meet the little guy. Of course, I’m a little partial to the little Texan…..Great job with a couple (or 3) great subjects.
