This photo shoot was a bit bittersweet. I photographed this Mama when she was pregnant the first time around and have thankfully been able to continue her journey as the family expands. I have photographed many women over the last couple of years but she has impressed me the most as she has had to serve and protect both her toddler and her unborn child alone while her husband has been serving our country overseas. She has shown strength and perseverance and thankfully very soon she will have her whole family together again. I look forward to photographing them together as a whole family and hopefully I get to do that before this little one is born.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
