When planning your maternity portrait session, the dress will often choose the location for you.  In a shimmering, white fitted dress from PinkBlush Maternity and hair and makeup from the fine gals at Beauty Bar Boutique this expecting mama was all aglow for her downtown, riverside portraits.  In a dress like this one all you need is a statement necklace, a great pair of shoes, and no shame in that baby bump!  And at 32 weeks Ashley wasn't afraid to strut that bump in heels!  She and her husband, Brett, decided early on that they did not want to know their baby's sex until he or she made it's debut.  So of course a green necklace was fitting for a gender neutral pop of color.

This growing family is very close to my heart as Ashley and I have been best friends since the 6th grade.  I won't tell you how long that's been so you can't do the math!  It has been an honor and my pleasure to stand by her side at her wedding, pray with her in planning a family, and now to document the beginnings of this incredible new chapter for her and Brett.  She will be a loving, nurturing mother.  In fact, she IS a loving, nurturing mother.  She and Brett are the proud parents of a perfect baby...oh wait, you'll have to find out the sex on the next blog post!  🙂
