It is well... Maternity Session | The Woodlands, TX | Studio154 Photography

Today, I was to introduce you to this beautiful lady, Jenny. Our paths crossed in what we believe was a God directed way. 

Jenny is pregnant with her second child, and while at an appointment at her doctors office they found out their baby girl, Sadie, had a form a Skeletal Dysplasia. You can read more about Jenny and Sadie's story on Jenny's blog. #PrayforSadie

We wanted to capture maternity photos for Jenny and her family as quickly as possible because with this diagnosis, Jenny explained, that baby could arrive earlier than 40 weeks. 

That afternoon of the photo session it started to pour down raining. Not just a little drizzle, it absolutely side-ways rain storm. I was so worried we'd have to reschedule and that probably was going to make this photo shoot not happen. I prayed the rain would stop! It did. Not only did it stop, the most glorious sun shine came out. You can see in the images below that the sun wrapped around Jenny, her husband, and son - like a warm blanket. Jenny and I both said that there had to be a sermon somewhere in that. After the storm, His sun shines brighter than before. 

Jenny brought some sweet sentimental things to include in the maternity shoot. A letter that she wrote to her daughter years and years ago. A blanket for Sadie, a bracelet, a bear and a book. Her precious son, loved showing these things off. He just recently celebrated his birthday and we discussed all the things 4 year olds do. 

Even with being faced with the unknown for their sweet Sadie, Jenny (and her families) faith is so strong and steadfast. I'm so encouraged by them, and truly honored to capture these photos for the Ladd family. 

I ask that you join with me in praying for them through this journey and season of life. I leave you with this beautiful hymn that Jenny has her on blog.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul
It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Pickles, Popcorn and Ice Cream, oh my! Maternity Session | The Woodlands, TX | Studio154 Photography

Hello Friends! I have a super fun maternity session to share with you today. You might remember seeing this gorgeous boy Mom over on my facebook page recently...

That day we captured some super sweet moments with Mama and her two boys as they await the arrival of their newest team mate rounding out to a perfect trio. 

After all the precious-silly moments captured at home, Amy (mama) and I chatted and dreamed up a fun maternity shoot. Involving one of the stores that we spend probably most of our time at, the grocery store! After a few phone calls and emails later with management, I had the date set and made our way to H-E-B, (where "Here Everything's Better"). I don't know about you, but what pregnant lady doesn't love the grocery store!

When Amy arrived, I couldn't help but crack up laughing as she showed me her spoon she brought from home, "Ya know, just in case I need some ice cream." 

We ventured round the aisles to her favorite spots, Baby Harrison was craving kettle corn, and we made a stop to cool the heartburn - introduced Amy to TUMS Smoothies (these are LIFESAVERS) - and continued our way throughout the store. We laughed till we cried and had a blast capturing all those Preggo favs. 

Finished the trip with a bucket of Texas goodness, Blue Bell ice cream, and baby decided he needed a drumstick too. Whatever baby wants, baby gets, right!?

Enjoy our trip to H-E-B!

Autumn Maternity Session

I met this precious Mama this fall for her maternity session. Her darling little girls were in tow and they were full of life and buckets of happiness. It was such a fun session! 

KateLin is grace and beauty all wrapped into one. She wanted to capture these photographs as they were going to be welcoming their rainbow baby soon. The baby's gender was going to be a surprise and the girls were excited to find out. 

Enjoy these autumn glorious jewel-toned photographs...

Rainbow Baby Maternity Session | The Woodlands, TX Maternity Photographer | Studio154 Photography

I know the heart ache of infertility and pregnancy loss all too well, having been through a around of IVF and two miscarriages, I have a heart toward those who've had to journey through it. It's like a silent club we're in together, we mourn and comfort each other in the hard times, and we also celebrate and jump up and down in excitement during the good times! 

I've been fortunate to be able to celebrate having a rainbow baby. A rainbow baby is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.

I had this idea, this vision come to me for a photography shoot: Rainbow confetti falling from the sky on an expecting Mama! What better way to celebrate something amazing happening like throwing confetti all around? Who doesn't love confetti!? 

My sweet friend, Brittany  (who also participated in my beauty for ashes photography project last year), is currently pregnant with her precious rainbow baby, jumped on board to help make this idea a reality. With the help of some amazing creatives this vision came to life.
