The week before Mother's Day I received the sweetest phone call from a husband looking to purchase a portrait session for his expecting wife.  Ladies, you should have heard the way he spoke about her.  Clearly this man was over the moon, not only for his wife, but also for their baby's arrival.  He gifted her maternity and newborn portrait sessions and also surprised her with a pink, flowing dress specifically for the session!  And the gold medal for sweetest husband goes to Mike Baker everyone!

With hair and makeup professionally done and several outfits ready to go, Amanda and I took to the sand on one incredibly beautiful week day evening.  Sunny?  Check.  Zero humidity?  Check.  I loved every second of this session.  My favorite moment had to be when Amanda whipped out the CUTEST mint green bikini at the end of the session and asked if we should try it out.  Yes, please!  Between floppy hats, flowing dresses, and teeny-tiny bikinis you are bound to love these images as much as I do!

Thank you to the incredibly talented ladies (and gents) over at Beauty Bar Boutique!  They never fail at making my expecting mamas feel so loved by enhancing those beautiful pregnancy glows.

A huge thank you to Mike for being an incredibly thoughtful husband and gifting this beautiful dress to his wife.  And another huge thank you to Mike and Amanda for donating it to my ever growing maternity wardrobe!

Can you handle this?  Because I certainly can't!  The belly.  The bikini.  The scarf.  It's all just perfection.
