Hailey and Annabelle, a perfect beginning to any story I believe. I was welcomed into their home to document a more personal session and oh, what fun we had.

Walking into this family's home for our maternity session was so much fun. The excitement was everywhere. I loved this session. There were so many beautiful moments. So many beautiful memories.
