Julianna + Nathan | Bismarck, ND | Maternity

"It's only cold if your standing still."

 Julianna and Nathan joined me on a very bitter afternoon in February to capture their maternity pictures. We had envisioned a beautiful snowy day with nice trees, you know, those pinterest type pictures. Of course, it being North Dakota, we settled for knee deep snow, below freezing temperatures and wind. Julianna was such a trooper! We literally burned 200+ calories trekking threw the snow and questioning if we all still had limbs after the session.

Kim & Tim | Mandan, ND | Maternity Session

"I never want to stop making memories with you." -Pierre Jeanty

 This brave and strong momma joined me on an adventurist hike to one of my favorite locations. Tim and I bonded over talks of hunting and dogs. Kim was a glowing beauty. It was a chilly, cloudy, fall afternoon but we captured some stunning images! The two welcomed a baby boy shortly after.

Kara + Harper | Bismarck, ND | Maternity

"But I love you so much more than just to the moon and back."

 You might recognize these two from previous posts. Kara and I have been friends for awhile now, and I also photographed her maternity session with Harper. Little Harper stole my heart the first time I held her. She is so sweet and happy. She loves to listen to music and dance. She is ridiculously smart and loves having books read to her. Her soft little voice melts my heart every time she says "hi mel!" I really enjoyed this mommy + me maternity session. Thanks for having me out to the house and letting me love up on Harper! I hope our daughters are as good of friends as we are :)
