My Niece is Almost Here!!

June 04, 2015

Hey friends, it's been a while since I've blogged and that's because April and May were extremely busy months!  I've been super lucky though, because all of my clients this year have been the bomb diggity, and I have some incredibly sweet weddings to share on the blog soon!  But up today is a session that is close to my heart...  and that's because my own brother and his sweet family are the adorable subjects.

My younger brother Alex is one awesome guy.  Everybody loves him and that's because he's got the best sense of humor, and a heart of gold.  As his big sister, I've watched him grow up from this goofy kid into a responsible young man-- especially in this last year, he's blossomed in so many ways and I've never seen him so happy and healthy.  There are many reasons why he's so high in the clouds and loving life, and 3 of the reasons are right here:  his fiancee, Lindsey, her daughter Zoe annnnnd....    their baby girl to be, Lucia!!  Yes, you heard that right-- I'm gonna be an auntie again!!  Although I have 9 nieces and nephews on my husband's side (and I love those kids to pieces), this will be my first niece from my only brother, so I'm especially excited for her arrival! <3

Ever since Lindsey came into my brother's life, I've known it was right.  They compliment each other so well, and I can totally see why my brother finds Lindsey and Zoe so special.  Those girls are witty and smart, beautiful and fun; as a family unit, they're so natural together.  I've enjoyed watching Alex take on the fatherly role with Zoe, whom I instantly adored as well.  Zoe is so adorable, so thoughtful and sweet... it proves what a great mom she has.  I feel equally lucky to have those ladies in MY life, and I'm so excited to watch their family grow!!

I could go on and on, but I'll spare the extra lovey-dovey details and get to the pictures!  I was honored to shoot their maternity session, and feel so overwhelmed with gratitude when I look at these images.  We went to the Sonoma Regional Park, in our hometown of Sonoma, for a sunset shoot a couple weeks ago.  My dad, husband and kids came along to hang out/watch/entertain themselves....  so of course, my kids insisted on jumping into one of the frames!  That's them with their uncle Alex, Lindsey and Zoe in the first photo.

Baby Lucia is due to arrive THIS Monday, so I thought it would be perfect to share their sweet maternity session now.  I can't wait to see her beautiful face and hold her in my arms!  I'm so proud and happy for this sweet family, and incredibly thankful for them in my life <3
