From their engagement to wedding and then maternity, newborn and family sessions, I have been photographing this family for the past four years! And what a fun filled and busy 4 years it has been! I was so excited when Christy reached out to tell me they were expecting their second and wanting me to document her growing family. It is such a pleasure to see Christy and Kevin go from engaged to husband and wife to new parents and now eagerly awaiting their second – another little girl! It was also so wonderful to see Hayley again. She is no longer a baby but a busy toddler who is about to be a big sister!
Second maternity sessions have a different feel to them then the first, especially when you have such a energetic and curious two year old. There isn’t as much time for serene baby belly portraits as both mom and I were busy corralling Hayley for pictures. She isn’t quiet aware of what this all means to her, and wasn’t thrilled about photos but she still blew some kisses and talked to her soon to be sister! I am sure she will fall in love with her instantly once she is here and I am looking forward to seeing their relationship grow.
We headed over to South Valley Park in Ken Caryl for their session. Just South of Denver, South Valley is a gorgeous open space with dramatic red sandstone spires, ponds and enchanting mountain backdrops! Mom and dad chased Hayley and we explored the park while I photographed all the adorable moments.
I cannot wait to meet this little lady and do her newborn session in a few short months! She will love to have all these images to look back at when she is older! This family is full of blessings and joy and I couldn’t be happier for them. Please enjoy some of my favorites from their session.
