MATERNITY | The Confer Family

One of my favorite families is about to welcome their THIRD baby boy in a few short weeks! My husband, Zac, has been friends with Shane for more than 20 years, now, and it has been so fun to have children around the same ages who can play together. Melissa and I have often talked about the challenges and chaos that life with two boys is, so when we found out that they are having a third baby boy, I knew she must be a saint! On a serious note, the confer boys (Mason + Camden) are some of the sweetest little kiddos I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.  They are adorable and energetic and seem to be really excited about getting a new baby brother soon! I met up with the Confer fam for a quick maternity session last weekend, and the light couldn’t have been more beautiful! I am excited to share some (so many!) of my favorites from their session below.  Can we all just pause and acknowledge how full of personality Mason is, though!?

MATERNITY | AMBER + CAMERON

I had the honor of meeting up with my sweet cousin, Amber, for quick maternity portrait session at one of my favorite spots a few weeks ago.  Amber + Cameron are expecting a baby boy in just a few short weeks, and I am excited to meet him.  Amber is actually due on April 6th, which was my due date with my first baby, Jackson, back in 2011! He was stubborn and waited until the 17th to make an appearance, but I am hoping Amber’s little boy is a bit kinder to his mama! Being that Amber is my cousin, I have literally known her for her entire life :).  I used to babysit her in my early teenage years, and I have such fond memories of going over to her house and playing whatever games she wanted. She was a shy little girl like myself, and she used to curl up next to me or in my lap at bedtime, and would remain in that spot until she fell asleep.  I swear it feels just like yesterday that she was so small, so reconciling that with the woman who is about to become a mama is a crazy thing!

It had snowed a little bit the day before I met up with Amber + Cameron for their session at Silver Lake Park in Haymarket, VA, which was fun because some of the more shaded areas of the park had some snow left on the ground…the rest of the park was pretty muddy! Amber was a total trooper with an outfit change AND being barefoot in the second outfit.  Here are a few of my favorites from our session (p.s. how cute is that tiny belly?!)
