This lovely couple is expecting their first child soon. Rashi looks simply stunning as an expectant mommy and I can tell that they are going to be such wonderful parents. Their first baby is the fluffiest whitest poof ball of a dog that I’ve ever seen. He is in for a big surprise when he discovers that he is no longer Number 1 ! I love that Rashi’s mother came along for some pictures of them together too. What sweet memories for their new baby!Rachael McBee maternity photographyRachael McBee maternity photographyRachael McBee maternity photographyRachael McBee maternity photographyRachael McBee maternity photographyRachael McBee maternity photographyRachael McBee maternity photographyRachael McBee maternity photographyRachael McBee maternity photography

This sweet baby girl was long prayed for by her parents and her church family. She is truly a little miracle and has blessed all those who know her. I am so incredibly blessed to know her parents and  honored to have the opportunity to create these images for them to cherish as she grows up.

There are some people in your life with whom you have a “soul” connection. You have known each other for so long that you don’t need to use words to communicate. I knew in my heart that Lori was expecting weeks before she broke the news to me. I was simply beside myself with excitement and thankfulness for Lori and Stephen, because I knew they had been wanting a baby for some time.  I feel so blessed to have been a part of praying for sweet baby Soleil and for the opportunity to photograph her first days. They invited me into their beautiful home to capture these images when she was seven days new.

Their love story began as teenagers who had a crush on each other and it has continued to grow and deepen over the years. I have been so blessed to know Lori since junior high when she was just as beautiful as she is today. Their baby girl has been long hoped and prayed for, a fulfillment of their strong love for one another.

Lindsey is one of the sweetest, kindest people I know. She glowed beautifully when she was pregnant and we had so much fun capturing her expectant beauty. Lindsey has impeccable taste in all things fashion and is one of the creative minds behind the Brides of Oklahoma! Sam & Lindsey welcomed a handsome little hunk in September, who came to see me for his first portraits.
