Just about here, Baby

My cousin and dear friend (and hair stylist!) Hannah is due to have her baby girl in a couple of weeks. We got together for some maternity pictures a little while ago and I wanted to share a few of my favorites from her session.

These two were my sneak-peeks that I shared via Instagram, and they still make me smile. I think she is just glowing.

And here are the final images. I love that Hannah’s boy Aiden came with us…he is so excited to meet his baby sister and was very loving to his mama during pictures. We started the shoot at their home in the bedroom that has amazing light. And then we headed to the park in Wenatchee where I’ve taken Hannah’s family pictures 2 times before. I love how these images turned out. Hannah, you’re such a gorgeous mama.

It was such a treat to be behind the camera again, especially on such a beautiful day and for such a special occasion. I cannot wait to meet (and take pictures of) little Harper. Get here soon sweet thing!!

The best part of my day

Is waking up and taking care of this guy. Gibson has been with us for 2 months now, and they have been full of fun, joy, training, carpet cleaning, frustration, lots of chewing, puppy kisses and life! He’s made our life better; that much I know for sure.

I’m pretty much a really proud puppy mama. He is teaching me as much as he is learning from me, and I think that makes for a good lifelong friendship.

My session was posted yesterday and its all about creating and using a Blog Mission Statement. You’ll be amazed at how much this one thing can help you find and develop your voice as a blogger.

Creating a Blog Mission Statement is one of the first things I have my blog design clients do. It helps us both have a clear vision of where the blog headed.

Are you thinking about a blog redesign for spring? Check out my Blog Design page for more details about working through the process with me. I’d love to hear from you!
