Amanda, Nathan & baby!

I’m so excited to share this sweet little maternity shoot. I love photographing everyone, but there is something so sweet about a couple anticipating their first baby…I remember that time myself when pregnant with Hallie and it’s just a time mixed with excitement, nervousness and complete joy! Of course, those are feelings with all expected children (I had the same with my adorable Hayes), but the first…stepping into so many wonderful unknowns…it’s amazing.

Amanda and Nathan have decided to do the baby plan, which I am thrilled for as I get to watch them becomes parents and watch their sweet girl grow…it’s one of my favorite options we’ve got. This was just intended to be a mini shoot, but once I watched them interact and took a glance at the locations, I knew it would be a bit longer than just a mini. Here’s a little look at what we captured that warm summer evening :)

Baby Sharp #4 … we can’t wait to meet you!

I’d say, meet the Sharps, but if you’ve read this blog before, you already know them. Not only have I photographed them often, I also have the pleasure of photographing the families of Heidi’s siblings too…and the whole amazing group of them took me on vacation to document them in one of their favorite places: Knisley Family in Kiawah Island.  I’ve photographed almost all of their weddings, maternity shoots, newborn baby shoots & family shoots (some even across the country)…I can’t tell you how much I love getting to watch the family grow through my camera. I already have an in, as Heidi’s sister Hayley is my best friend…but that they ask me back time and time again means so much!

What is special about this particular family is that Heidi & Nate were not only my first newborn shoot when their daughter Em was born, they were also my first maternity shoot & a few years before they were my first official wedding as ‘Cassidy Dawn Photography’! My dream is that my wedding clients will hang on to me for their big important events in their life and the Sharps have certainly done that!  So grateful for them!

We met up for a casual mini shoot in their adorable home and captured a few photos before this cute family grows by one more! I can’t wait to meet Baby Sharp and see her through my camera!

Fun fact: Both Heidi & Hayley have gone into labor right after my blogging their maternity sessions…so since I know Heidi is ready to get this show on the road…I thought, what they hey, let’s give it a try! Heidi, here’s hoping ;)

Brecken & family: his 1st year…and a tad more!

Oh, how I have been waiting to share some of these shoots with you. It’s taking a lot to not separate them into 6 different posts, but I really want to show how awesome a “baby plan” is.  Just a couple years ago, I introduced a “baby plan” to my shoot offerings. Not sure if it would take off, I had 5 families sign up almost immediately. I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I have had with these families. Some have picked to do their plan over 2 years, and some have kept them to 1. I’m still working with most of them, but I have recently finished up a few…and gosh, it’s so fun to look back. Honestly, it makes me feel a tad guilty for my kids…I mean, isn’t the saying…”a cobbler’s kids don’t have shoes…” or something like that?

Anyway, I HAVE to introduce you to these people! A simple blog post would never convey how much I adore them. Jamie and I have clicked and have become such great friends. Not like, “I love photographing you and your family, it’s really fun” sort of friends, but full texting conversations and her sending me the most thoughtful sweet notes and gifts. I mean, this girl, she’s something else.

They are actually the first family to sign up for the baby plan and she added a maternity session to it, so I just had to show you them all at once to watch cute little Brecken grow.  Hold on to your horses, it’s a big post, but it’s so worth it :)

Christie, Beckham & baby Chester

Happy Monday!! What? Too perky for this icy covered Monday morning? Sorry, but I wanted to share these sweet maternity photos with you all. I should start by saying…I love this girl. I’ve had the best time getting to know her & her family this past year while her son was on the “baby plan” (more on that soon), and as you can see, just as I hope all of my baby plan clients will do, she’s pregnant again, so I get another year with them! One of my favorite things about Christie (seriously, there are so many), she’s not wrapped up in the quantity of photos…just quality. We got together one afternoon, super low key and just knocked out a little mini session. Just enough to document this awesome time of her pregnancy & a few super sweet photos of her and Beckham.

Of course, as you have guessed it, her sweet baby arrived late fall, and I can’t wait to show you this awesome family of 4.

Heidi & Family | Ohio Family Photographer

I’ve got a funny story for you. I am so bummed that I didn’t get this blog post up yesterday like I intended. You see, I had everything ready to go, but my internet was being so slow that I thought…I’ll just get it up tomorrow instead of fighting with it now. When Heidi was pregnant with her first, Em, I blogged her maternity photos & that same day she went into labor and had sweet, little Em. Well, had I just kept with my plan, the same thing would have happened yesterday! Little Grady was born yesterday, so congrats to the family…I can’t wait to meet him :)
