Jessica! South Bend, Indiana Newborn Family Session

December 1, 2014

“Motherhood is the greatest thing and the hardest thing” – Ricki Lake


Meet Jessica!  I’ve known Jenna and Ali [aka: “mom” and “dad”] pretty much since we moved up to South Bend four years ago [yay for connecting with people at church!]  And it has been very cool to watch them transition into parenthood!  Jessica, who lovingly has been referred to as “pumpkin” since way before she was born, was born on Halloween this year! [How appropriate! Right?!?].

Jenna and Ali, thanks so much for inviting me to photograph your darling daughter!  I’m so glad I was able to be around for this journey!  Much love friends!

[With a ton of help of course from Megan, and the ladies at church].  Since it was awesome, and Jenna was the most adorable pregnant lady, I thought it was my duty to include some of those images too :).

    Awe. Love the pumpkin story! My favorites are the first one of her wrapped up in that beautiful quilt, the black/white one of her and mom and dad, and that one of her in the quilt with a pumpkin. Ha! Very cute.
