In my opinion there is no better time for a maternity shoot than at sunrise. Not only is it beautiful and symbolic of a new day, it is also a great way to escape the Albuquerque heat. Oh….and get to see the hot air balloons taking off. This beautiful Mommy-to-be hiked to the top of…

    How many great photos to be found in here! Just discovered you blog through pinterest. Now I’m gonna digg into more of your post to find more inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

There is something extra special about the pregnancy of your first child.  It is hard to explain in words…I just know that when I photographed this beautiful couple, they radiated the feeling I remember. A sort of calm, anxious, loving feeling. Climbing that tiny tree was totally worth it when I captured this image. Next…

    Oh my gosh Katie – your baby bump is adorable!! All of the pictures are beautiful! My favorite is the third from the bottom, with the two of you in the field. Congratulations!

I’ve heard some really sweet, funny and cute nicknames for babies. I think Tomato may be my new favorite! Often times this shoot felt more like an engagement shoot than a maternity shoot. Clovis sunsets have such a dreamy, watercolor effect. Note to future clients: Don’t start doing cartwheels behind my back unless you want…

  • Angela TomlinNovember 2, 2010 - 8:41 pm

    I only saw the pic of Jen in the wrap on fb and LOVED IT! I think my new fav is the cartwheel pic! They are all amazing!

  • SandiNovember 3, 2010 - 4:58 am

    That beautiful pregnant lady is my very best friend, who picked a wonderful guy to create a baby with. I lean towards a boy but am no good at these things. Whichever it is, s/he will be wonderful and very loved!!!

  • SandiNovember 3, 2010 - 5:00 am

    To Kasy Mikelle – thanks for doing such a beautiful job for these two fabulous people! Those are stunning pictures!

  • Lois SeibtNovember 3, 2010 - 7:51 pm

    Jen is going to give me my third great grandchild. The pictures are a masterpiece. Oh, I think it is going to be a GIRL tomato.

  • Heather LloydNovember 4, 2010 - 6:54 am

    Jen you look beautiful and I just love all of these pics. I would have to say that the cartwheel one is my favorite of the two of you. Really amazing photos!

  • TaylorHogeNovember 4, 2010 - 12:47 pm

    These are so amazingly beautiful! I love the tomatoes and that you are courageous/patient enough to be surprised. I wanted to be–and then couldn’t make it! 🙂 All the very best to you both and your (soon to be) new addition!

  • Donna GetzNovember 7, 2010 - 5:34 pm

    Loved the pictures, especially the cartwheel. Yep, it’s a boy! What a beautiful family you are already.

I love it when clients want to surprise their loved ones with photos. This Mommy-to-be decided to surprise her husband, who is deployed until November, with some maternity photos. This photo happens to be my favorite because it combines all the things her husband loves. Car. Wife. Baby girl. (probably not in that order though…

    Danielle you look absolutely beautiful! Love you all, Aunt Gail

  • Joe WottonOctober 5, 2010 - 8:25 pm

    Danielle – what a GREAT series of pics! Fabulous idea — Joe will love these. I especially like the two pics of you in the dress where you look down at your baby and then in the next one you look up to the sky (thinking of Joe?).

  • Chris InghamOctober 5, 2010 - 9:09 pm

    Looking Great Danielle! Wish we weren’t so far apart, but pictures make us feel closer. Thanks for sharing. Love to the Benscoter Family!!!

    You never looked more beautiful Danielle. These photos just made me smile and cry at the same time. I can’t wait to see you and to meet our sweet little Sophia.

  • Carl BenscoterOctober 6, 2010 - 5:07 am

    Danielle, these are great pictures of you. What a great concept. I know Joe will enjoy them, especially since he hasn’t been able to be with you for so much of the pregnancy. I like the one on road where you’re looking down at Sophia.

  • Aunt JanOctober 6, 2010 - 12:55 pm

    Danielle, these pictures are so beautiful and clever; Joe will love them. Can’t wait to meet Sophia. Can we order some? Love from Aunt Jan, Uncle Jim and Cortney.

    Since when have you been pregnant?

  • Erin LagasseOctober 6, 2010 - 2:24 pm

    Great Pics Danielle!!! I really like the one with Joe’s “bat mobile” and the one when you are looking down at your belly with the road in the background. I know Joe will love these!!!

  • Debbie WottonOctober 6, 2010 - 9:49 pm

    Sweet Danielle, I love these photos – what a great idea! Fave pic? I’d say the one of you in the dress looking down on Sophia with the road stretching on, which reminds me of the road/fields in the movie “Gladiator.” But all of them are gorgeous. I don’t think you ever take a bad picture!

  • BrittneyOctober 6, 2010 - 10:58 pm

    These photos are amazing! You look so beautiful Danielle!

  • Julie B.October 7, 2010 - 4:36 am

  • Joe BenscoterOctober 9, 2010 - 9:01 pm

    I love the pictures hon! Thanks so much for getting them taken. Can’t wait to see that baby bump in person soon!

  • Karen Rini-AgpaoaOctober 12, 2010 - 8:39 am

    These are awesome! Danielle, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Each one depicts a more beautiful you and baby Sohpia! Good luck and keep the pics coming!

  • taraOctober 18, 2010 - 3:09 pm

  • CherylJanuary 1, 2011 - 9:57 pm

    Such a pretty mommy. My favs are the Milo and Sorghum picture and the belly in the road – great dress and I love the lines of the dirt road. Kasey you are the Best baby belly photographer ever!!

I was a bit leery about this photo shoot because of the looming storm clouds and muddy fields. However, when this mommy-to-be stepped out of the car I knew everything would fall into place. Dressed in a bold, blue dress and yellow scarf, she looked so beautiful and was truly glowing…like sunshine. I knew a…

    I’ll admit that as David’s dad I already think that he and Ingrid are made for the camera. Your photography captures their inner and outer beauty. I would love to buy some of these.

    The photos are lovely. I have not had the opportunity to visit with David and Ingrid during the time of their pergnancy. It was delightful to see the joy in their faces and the beauty of Ingrid as an expecting mother.
