Jenine - Mini Maternity Session | Lynden, WA Maternity & Newborn Photographer

Jenine's awesome sister gifted her with a mini maternity session while her and her husband were in town last week.  We had a rainy day but that didn't slow us down.  Jenine is absolutely stunning and such a glowing mama-to-be!  I wish they didn't live across the country so I could meet the sweet baby in about 9 weeks! All of the session images are online, checking them out by clicking on the Proofing link above.  Enjoy!


Shelly | Lynden Maternity Photographer

Gorgeous soon-to-be mama, excited soon-to-be daddy and one precious little girl on the way = one amazing maternity session!  What a great morning I had this past weekend spending some time with Shelly and Kent just one week before their daughter’s due date.  The lighting was perfect, the location at Hovander Park was perfection and the weather was great!  I can’t wait to hear the news of their little one’s arrival so I can meet her for newborn pictures!

Thank you so much Shelly & Kent!  You two are going to be awesome parents and I am so excited for your growing family.  I’m praying for a safe and amazing birth – see you soon!

Amber & Jerad | Lynden Maternity Photographer

Who is 38 weeks pregnant and still wearing regular, non-maternity clothes?  Amber is!  She seriously rocks and is possibly making women jealous all across the nation now!  She is so fit and adorable at full term – picture perfect really!  Amber, husband Jerad and I had a great time exploring some fantastic urban locations this past week in the freezing cold.  I can’t wait until their little baby boy makes his big arrival in the next few weeks and I can get a little newborn fix!  These two were so much fun, up for anything and I can just tell they are going to make the best parents.

Amber & Jerad - thanks for letting me document this exciting time in your life!  I hope little Peanut makes his debut soon—see you then!

Below are some of my favorites, the rest are online – click on Proofing above.  Enjoy!!




Perfect baby bump!



I wanted to celebrate the fact that Amber can still run and workout at full term (because let’s face it…I’m pretty sure I was waddling like a duck at that point).  So we did a little back alley jogging – love it!  My favorite!


Best doorway ever!





Brittany & Joel | Lynden Maternity Photographer

Brittany and Joel are expecting a little girl this winter so we documented the exciting upcoming event with some maternity/family pictures on a freezing cold, beautiful Saturday morning at Semiahmoo.  We had a great time walking around, talking about babies and trying to stay warm. 

Thanks so much Brittany and Joel!  I can’t wait to meet your little one in February!!

Ian & Kristen | Lynden Maternity Photographer

This past week I had a wonderful time photographing Ian and Kristen’s maternity session.  Kristen looked absolutely radiant—she is one gorgeous mama-to-be!  These two were wonderful to work with and I was so excited that Ian brought out his classic truck for the session!  I can’t wait to meet and photograph their new baby (hopefully in just a few short weeks!), especially with that truck!

Thanks so much Ian and Kristen!  You two are fabulous!  I hope the rest of your pregnancy flies by—see you soon!

All of their session images will be up by the end of the week.

Isn’t she gorgeous?!

Ashley - Maternity

Monday night I had an awesome time hanging out with a beautiful mom to be and her family. Thanks so much for a great time Ashley and Tyler! Ashley looked gorgeous just a few weeks out from her due date!

Check out some of my favorites!

Simply stunning!

I love this picture!
These two were so excited to meet their little one--just a few more weeks!

One brave momma!

I'm quite certain she couldn't feel her feet after this but it was definitely worth it! Amazing!

Belly comparison!

I can't wait to meet Teia (I wish I knew how to put the apostrophe over the "e" like how her name is written below!) in just a few weeks--I'm so excited for her newborn session!

Big sister is SO adorable!

Not only is she beautiful--she's strong. These last two are my favorite shots from the day and completely unplanned--those are the best kind!

Thanks again Ashley and Tyler! I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well! Here's hoping for a fast, safe delivery! See you in a few weeks!
