I am not sure if you know, but I have a fear of the water. Started young as I grew up in Florida and felt too many creepy creatures touch my toes, seen way too many gators and snakes in the lake water and watched too many people drown in the ocean. Unless it’s a pool, you really won’t find me in any lake water. When I walk across any kind of pier or dock, I feel like I am a cat trying to stop herself from getting into a tub of water… and I slowly walk to the point I absolutely need to be at. Usually I also let my clients know that I have a fear of the water and if I was to fall in (again) that they should first and always grab the camera. Worry about me second!

Anywho – this lovely momma to be and her hubby scheduled their newborn session with me which was very exciting for a few reasons. 1 – the first time I met them was in the baby department in Wal-mart YEARS ago. They were looking for a crib mattress and we were shopping for diapers. We actually had an extra mattress and offered it to them. From then, a client/friendship was born! I have watched them have beautiful boys but I was filled with joy when I learned they were expecting a baby girl.

They took me on a boat ride to a small island in Hope, Idaho to document their maternity session. That was my first time playing on an island… and seeing an eagles nest. That thing was massive!!

 

Here is a sneak peek into their maternity session.
