Lifestyle maternity session are so much fun! I don’t know who was more excited, Rachel, Adam, or Bagel the pug! Oh the anticipation in their home was sweet. I loved watching Adam feel little kicks on Rachel’s baby bump. I smiled every time Rachel stroke her belly with out realizing it.
There’s nothing quite like that anticipation… Maybe Christmas eve when you were a child! Each ultrasound was like trying to peek at your presents. The excitement of this new baby in their family was so joyful.
We got to take a few in their beautiful brand new home. It was so fun to get a tour and see the nursery getting started. Rachel was absolutely gorgeous! We took these in that golden window of pregnancy around 7-8 months along. She had the cutest baby bumb, but wasn’t as uncomfortable as that last month.
After our time in their home and playing with their sweet puppy, we ventured out into the brisk evening by the lake for a few shots in what is practically their backyard! Beautiful Sand Hollow Reservoir.
That sunset was perfection, with rosy hues and lavender mountains. The desert was just starting to bloom from all this rain. I loved watching the Adam and Rachel walk together. Adam was so attentive to Rachel’s every need, including helping her empty tiny rocks out of her heels (seriously rock star mama for wearing heels while pregnant!)
I know that they are going to be awesome parents! They already love that little girl so much! They really are like the little kids on Christmas eve, just waiting for that morning light and the anticipation of what’s to come!
