Where do I begin, this session was so special to me, I had to split it up in two sessions because I just couldn’t fit it all into one. Did you know that Sweet Emma Lou Styles?!? It is actually one of my biggest passions, taking an idea and following it from conception, to reality!

This post makes my heart explode. This mama to be, is more than a friend to me…more like a sister. She is awesome, creative, daring, willing to take risks, and never ceases to amaze me.

I can’t explain what it means to have a friend that feels like family, sometimes I feel just as excited as she is for Baby M. I love her already and can’t wait to be Auntie Em to this sweet Baby Girl.

This mama to be, is a stunner, and I mean a STUNNER. I was so excited when she asked me to style her Maternity Shoot. She didn’t want to have the traditional Maternity Shoot, but still wanted to document such a special time. She ROCKED IT!!!!

She wasn’t afraid of anything,  and I just love her for it, not even a Maternity Shoot can make me walk a line she didn’t paint herself! She wanted a shoot that spoke to her natural maternal instincts, which has always been apparent in her love and care for animals.

We chose a Wonderland theme and played up her natural beauty and added some fury little critters! From wardrobe styling, to picking out props, to locating and renting some awesome critters Sweet Emma Lou and this Mama prepped to our heart content!

I am warning you now….these images are AMAZING! Sweet Emma Lou teamed up with our dear friend Shawn, of Magnolia Fotos ( I told you she would be back) for this amazing Maternity Shoot, and I can’t say enough about these beautiful images.
