My dear and amazing friends, Steph and Jeff welcomed their baby girl over Labor Day weekend and I realized I hadn’t blogged some of their last photographs taken together just before they became an official family of 4. Here they are and a big welcome to the world to their precious new baby girl. Big Brother is full of fun energy and so much love – I imagine he’ll do an amazing job at protecting her and teaching her about all he knows of this big world. I was so honored to have them reach out when they were on the search for a maternity photographer Fort Collins. My heart is so full for you Merkles and your beautiful family!
I firmly believe that there are times in our lives we should document regardless of how we feel about our bodies. Pregnancy is by far one of those precious times. Hormones running a muck, growing waistlines, an otherwise bizarre body shape, and an insecure body image amidst the changes which are our excuses for avoiding cameras during pregnancy are the very reasons we need to get in front of cameras.
