Family| Maternity Photographs with Luke Griffin & Katherine Rose

posted on: May 21, 2014



During our Florida vacation I received an email from Katherine of Max and Friends letting me know that she reads this little blog and would love to capture the tail end of this pregnancy for me, and also a few pictures of our family with her husband Luke. It took maybe 30 seconds after reading her email for me to respond that I was totally down, excited, and honored that they asked me. It's funny how things work out, I had newly become a fan of Luke and Katherine after seeing a few of Emily Henderson's maternity shots on Pinterest. Soon after, my friend Naomi also posted some pictures that they shot of her family around the holidays. As I looked over their portfolio prior to them even reaching out, I thought about how fun it would be if they actually captured our pregnancy for us. I guess all you need to do is put things into existence and they come alive right? 

Peter and I rarely get photos together as he's usually the one behind the camera, also I never went the maternity shoot route with River, so this was extra special. I can look on these photos and genuinely have a true connection with this time in my life and my family's life. After he arrives, the beauty of this day and the way we felt will always be with us. Also I can't forget to mention, these are the last photos of just the three of us as a family, it's so crazy. 

Here are a few of our family and maternity photographs.

Thank you so much Luke and Katherine, these photos mean everything to us! If you're in the L.A area I can not recommend this duo more. We had the best night with them and they are truly amazing people.

  6. The sweetest family -- and I cannot -- CANNOT -- get over how cute you + Peter are. It's out of control. So glad you had this opportunity to get someone else behind the lens for a second -- it's the most precious gift.
