Sometimes my heart is so extremely full. And when I look through the lens of my camera and get to see what life is all about, it overwhelms me with joy. This past month, my sister and brother in law were able to visit us from Florida and asked me to take some maternity pictures. We headed out to only the greatest place Michigan has to offer, the beach(!), and snapped a couple pictures before the sun went down.
It was perfect. My sister, who I love dearly. Her husband, who is such a perfect addition to our family. And their baby, who I cannot wait to meet soon!! What a beautiful picture of life and how it progresses.
Editing these images made me a bit teary eyed. Not only because I get a nephew or niece soon, but because I have captured so many of life’s “greatest” moments for Anni and Joel. In the summer of 2011, I captured their engagement pictures (also on the beautiful Lake Michigan). In the winter of 2011, I captured their wedding pictures (in the beautiful land of Florida, perfect to get away from winter in Michigan). And now, in the summer of 2014, I’ve captured their maternity pictures. What an absolute joy.
Please enjoy some of the pictures I took of Joel, Anni and baby Christie!
