The Renaissance of Motherhood

I remember speaking to Vanessa on the phone about her pregnancy and raising three children, as well as being a stepmom to teenage son. I thought to myself, “How does she do it?” Both Vanessa and her husband are in the military and she is raising their children through such a tough job. To say I was impressed by her is an understatement and I knew how important this experience was going to be for her.

“I was pregnant with my 4th and last baby and determined to get beautiful pictures that captured the beauty and power of motherhood. Knowing I’ll never experience pregnancy again, this photoshoot was extremely important to me. I wanted to capture my family and body in its current state so that I could look back on it years from now when my kids are grown up and be reminded of this incredibly special time.”

“My kids are 5, 3, and 2 and I know how challenging it is to get even one good picture of them. Erika’s energy and playfulness really got them to open up and feel comfortable which resulted in beautiful, natural moments captured on camera! The results were better than I could have hoped for!”

“My favorite part of the whole experience was the reveal at the end of the photo shoot. Seeing myself on the screen looking so regal was one thing, but then seeing the amazing pictures of my babies with Taylor Swifts “Never Grow Up” as the soundtrack was too much to handle, my husband and I both choked back the tears.”

Tell me about what an experience like this would mean to you!
