Matt & Sophia Maternity | Southeast Michigan Maternity photographer

I met Sophia back in the spring of 2013 at a job orientation. We are both pediatric nurses that work in private homes (next to this job, it’s kind of the best) Anyway…..we chatted a little about my 2nd job and her upcoming wedding. Later that week, they booked!!!

I met Matt and Sophia together in the October 2013 when I shot their engagement portraits at Sophia’s Whitney Family Farm in Ann Arbor Michigan, they were (are) adorable.

Fast Forward to Spring of 2014 when I photographed their gorgeous country wedding at the cutest little church in Dexter Michigan. It was a gorgeous day, with a few sprinkles of rain (ok, a lot of rain at some points) but that didn’t stop anyone from enjoying the day!




But seriously…the threat of rain makes for a gorgeous sky, doesn’t it?


Ok, on to the actual reason for this post…..when Whitney emailed me mid 2015 to announce to me that her and Matt were expecting, and she wanted to book her maternity and newborn sessions!!! Now THIS is seriously why I love this job so stinkin’ much!! I get to watch families form, and grow…it’s kind of amazing, right?

A chilly January afternoon, we met at my studio in Britton MI. We were hoping for a little snow, but not with this years Michigan weather. Sophia was seriously stunning in her perfect round belly. We captured some great memories. w (8 of 40)w (11 of 40)w (17 of 40)w (28 of 40)w (33 of 40)

Didn’t I tell you she was stunning in this beautiful round belly. You’ll be able to catch a peek at their sweet princess’ session pretty soon!
