Let me just start by saying I love maternity shoots. There is always such a special energy about them. Ali, David, and their daughter Emerson are expecting to welcome a little one into their family within the next couple of weeks. They are all so excited! They made the bold choice not to find out the sex of the baby, so there is so much excitement and anticipation surrounding this pregnancy!
This shoot really struck a chord with me for two reasons. First let's start with the flower crowns + flowy dresses. Such a perfect combination. Ali's vision for her shoot coincided perfectly with my idea of what I hope my own maternity shoot will be one day. The gorgeous flower crowns made by Amanda Burnette made the shoot!
Secondly, Emerson is about the same age I was when my mom had my sister. I vividly remember how excited I was for my baby to get here..because yes I was convinced that she was going to be MY baby. I could see the excitement in Emerson's eyes and knew exactly how she felt. Becoming a big sister is a really big thing in a 3 year old's life.
Ali + David had a present waiting for Emerson at the start of the shoot. Her eyes lit up when she opened it. It was an adorable little bracelet that said big sister on it. She was so excited!
These three are the sweetest little family and it truly meant so much to us that we got to take these photos for them!
