You Are My Greatest Adventure / Justin & Monique

Where do I even begin with these two?! Monique messaged me saying; “Girl, I want to have a session of just Justin & I.” Say what?! Yes Lady friend!! She specifically was looking to have purple flowers in the background. So I took to location scouting to see what I could find in early May. And I stumbled across these gorgeous purple flowering trees set against the beautiful old brick of a local church.

As parents of three young boys, Justin & Monique have recently made it a point to add more moments in their life focused on the two of them. And I could not be happier for them! Because lets be honest, to be the amazing parents they are, they need those moments of just being Monique & Justin <3

I first met Monique & Justin just about 8 years ago, when they hired me to photograph their twin boys in the hospital just after birth and a studio newborn session. Since then, we have had numerous sessions together over the years, documenting all three boys growth. And while we capture family images as well, rarely do we focus on Monique & Justin. So you can imagine my excitement when she told me she wanted me to help her with such a session!!

The day of their session was filled with dark clouds and rain; I told her it’s going to clear off and be beautiful just in time for your session. And don’t you know, as she drove to meet me, she encountered a fabulous rainbow as the rain subsided and the sun came out!

These two are definitely each others rocks! It has been such an honor to be Monique’s friend and watch her overcome many heartaches and obstacles over the recent years and begin to flourish and see her realize she is so so much more than just a mom, with the constant love and support of Justin by her side!

Neil Getty / Newborn Session

Watching families grow is such a fun part of my job, and I get so excited when they return for me to photograph their newest additions! This sweet family has trusted in me to capture all three of their handsome little guys over the years. Their newest bundle of joy, Neil, was recently in the Erin Marie Photography Studio, for his ‘modeling’ debut. I photographed both of his big brothers, and for each of their sessions mom brought something specific to personalize some images. Big bother Ford, we photographed with a Ford street sign and cowboy boots. Big brother Jack, had cute letter signs to spell out his name. For Neil’s session, mom found this adorable milk bottle swaddle blanket, which was perfect as they are a dairy farm family! She also brought in an old family metal milk box that has the farm name, Ideal Dairy Farms, on it. Just look at this handsome fella!

Neil wanted to check out all the happenings during his session, but we eventually got him tired out and he fell asleep for some wrapped images.

Mom had this super cute swaddle blanket with cows on it, and I just had to grab a few images of him wrapped all snug in it!

And as mom is a plaid fan, using the plaid scarf that I had on hand in the studio was a must do!

Angela & Dan / Maternity Session

Maternity sessions hold a special place in my heart to photograph. These handful of months (what sometimes feels like years lol) pass so quickly, and it’s a time when a woman’s body is doing such incredible things; you know, like creating another human! As a mom who’s been through multiple pregnancies, I completely understand the moments of uncomfortableness, feeling huge and unattractive. But let me tell you, it’s one of the most beautiful times in your life! I love to document that and show you how gorgeous you truly are in those moments. <3

Angela and Dan received a maternity & newborn session as a baby shower gift, what an awesome gift right?! They were recently in the Erin Marie Photography Studio for their maternity session and let me tell you, they were so much fun to work with! Angela and I had chatted beforehand and I was able to gather that she really liked silhouette images and a very simplistic style to the images. I advised her on what would work best in clothing choices to achieve the type of looks she liked. Just look at that gorgeous baby bump!

While maternity sessions generally focus on momma-to-be and her growing belly, I love to capture images of parents together in this special time of their lives. And like most loving and supportive significant others, while Dan might not have cared so much about being photographed; he was a great sport and followed my directions when included in images. Though I think his favorite parts of the session were probably when I would tell him he could sit and relax for a few minutes while I photographed Angela :D

I can not wait to meet and photograph their little one, very soon!
