There are few shoots I wake up at the crack of dawn for…in fact none, except for this one. That’s right, I woke up before the cock crowed. For this shoot I was inspired by the freedom of the Great Plains Indians. Melissa is a friend and talented photographer who carries a special place in my heart…she is wife to a loving husband, mother to the cutest little girl, and they are all expecting a baby girl any day, any moment now. Five years ago, Melissa and Micah were the first couple ever to ask me shoot an engagement for them, so it meant the world to me when Melissa asked me once again to capture these memories for them at this stage of her pregnancy. Melissa and Micah, I am beyond excited for you two ! Melissa, you make pregnancy look so good.
