My beautiful baby sister is going to be a mom next month. I feel like her pregnancy has flown by even though I know she wouldn't agree. Pregnancy is so beautiful, but also seriously one of the toughest things a woman will go through. It is such a gift, but holy moly is it hard. I have loved watching my sister through this stage of life, and even though there have been bumps, and aches and pains, she is already becoming such a wonderful and caring mother.
So I actually had to talk Carley into these portraits....She wasn't planning on maternity portraits until I started sending her pins of pretty winter sessions. I mean seriously Car, your sister is a photographer and you are one hot mama, so what were you thinking??? Luckily she did agree and we decided to do the shoot the same day as her baby shower which worked out great for hair and make-up! We literally only had 45 minutes and we spent a lot of that time cruising through the pasture so she made magic happen in very little time, which actually worked out ok since by the end her nose was getting a little red. Gotta love Montana in December. James even made an appearance which was not part of the original plan, but you don't tell your expecting wife no...you just don't.
Enjoy the sneak peek of Carley and James shot at our winter wonderland Buttelman Ranch in Three Forks, MT. I love you two and can't wait to meet my nephew!!!
