Maternity Life...Coming to a Close!

For those of you who have been following along with my personal life, you know my husband and I are expecting a new addition to our family!  Baby girl Tresko is coming...SOON!  I'm currently 37 weeks along and for those of you who don't know pregnancy math very well, that means I'm THREE weeks away from my due date!  It's an exciting, overwhelming, nerve-wrecking feeling to say the least. 

While my career as a photographer has been an adventure and very fulfilling, I feel like my whole life has really been geared towards becoming a mom.  Since I was young, it's the one thing I knew for sure that I wanted to be when I grew up.  I have an amazing mom who was very involved growing up and has been a wonderful support for me to this day.  I'd say that's one of the biggest reasons I've always known motherhood was a goal in life; because I wanted to be just like her.  In all honestly as the due date approaches though, I'm a ball of mixed emotions.  I blame hormones too, haha!  So much to prepare for, yet everyone says you can never be 100% ready and I 100% believe that.  There's just a lot of adjustments at once, including our move from California to Washington! I'm definitely missing the sunshine and warmer weather and of course my friends. Life has felt far from normal, but I know God has a plan for us here and with a baby on the way, I know life will be sweeter once she's in my arms!

Now for some photo fun!  In preparation for baby girl's arrival, I couldn't NOT do a maternity shoot to document this time in our life. The wonderful Jessi from Jecka & Co. Photography  was gracious enough to drive down from Livermore to the enchanting Nestldown for our maternity session.  We made sure to get in our photo shoot before our big move. It was so awesome to be able to capture some of my own memories at Nestldown; the venue I've shot at countless times over the years.  Using all film, Jessi delivered some gorgeous images to us and I'm super grateful!!  Here are just a few of my favorites below :)

Valentine's Day Maternity Photo Shoot

Shooting a maternity session was such wonderful way to celebrate love on Valentines Day this year!  Celebrating the love between a married couple and the love of their expected child is really special and I'm so happy I got to photograph this part of my sister and brother-in-law's journey together.  I've said it before and I'll say it again; pregnancy is just such a beautiful thing.  My sister would probably disagree with that statement after all the "morning" sickness she's experienced and the major change to her body, but as her little sister, I just admire her so much.  Just look at her...she's so beautiful!  She opted for a whimsical look, wearing an adorable flower crown which worked so nicely with the field we shot at in the Calaveras Hills in Milpitas.  The sun was hitting the hills just perfectly and made the shoot look so magical. Her baby bump is still small, but growing day by day. I'm so happy for her and her husband Marcus and I am just so anxious to meet their baby boy in May.  This is will be not only the first nephew in our family, but the first grandchild!  For my parents who raised all girls, this will be a fun change for them to have a boy in the family. I can't wait to be an aunt!  Plus I'm really looking forward to shooting some awesome newborn shots!  ;-) Maternity pictures at Spring Valley Pond field in Milpitas, CA.

Santa Cruz Beach Maternity Shoot

Baby bumps, bellies, and the expectations of a new life!  Pregnancy is such a fascinating and beautiful thing to me.  I have yet to experience it, but I admire each and every woman who has endured it and brought a life into the world!  I had the honor of photographing Jennifer and her family as they fast approached the birth of their second child.  Jennifer gave birth only 3 1/2 weeks after this shoot and she was such a trooper!  We trekked down to 4 Mile Beach in Santa Cruz, just off highway 1 and we caught some gorgeous light.  Their adorable 2-year old daughter Darla was being camera shy, but I was able to snap some moments of her precious smile and curiosity with the sand.  Baby Dakota is growing fast and strong now.  I even got to meet the little one last week!  From the belly to a baby in the big world--it's just amazing how life forms.Maternity photo shoot at Santa Cruz Four-Mile Beach.
