the back bay

on wednesday, shelby and i met up with sarah (nugent) sweggles for a walk and then lunch. we trekked in the wild flowers at the back bay and had fun watching shelby explore snails, the dirt, flowers, sticks, etc. and trying to keep up with her as she ran. she told us herself, “i have a lot of energy!” if we could just bottle that up and sell it, we’d never have to work again :). here are some pics (of shelbs of course) from our exploration…

welcome baby benjamin!

what an incredible experience i has this past tuesday!  on 4.6.10, i was able to witness little benjamin cole goodman make his way into the world!  it was a home birth and was attended by 2009 midwife of the year, bj snell {she’s my midwife too}.  the process was so beautiful and peaceful!  and brooke did such an amazing job!  she was so centered and calm.  although i have seen many births during my nurse’s training, i think this was my first natural birth, and definitely my first home birth!  there seemed to be such comfort and ease in being at home.  even big brother jonathan and big sister kate got to see their little brother’s arrival.  what a moment!  i feel honored to have been given the opportunity to capture some of the beauty of benjamin’s birth day!  congrats, goodmans!

brooke + ?

on sunday, i had the honor of taking some maternity pictures for my good friend brooke!  we knew each other from youth group back in high school, but we became true friends when we were in a couples bible study several years back.  she’s now pregnant with her 3rd.  we went to a beautiful park in laguna niguel and snapped these shots. her baby boy is due the beginning of april and i am so excited because she invited me to come and photograph her birth!  i can’t wait to meet little baby boy goodman!  thanks brooke for giving me the opportunity to capture a bit of your beauty, for the chocolate chip banana pancakes, and for the mommy encouragement!
