Oklahoma City

I went to Oklahoma City last week to visit my dearest friend and cousin and I couldn’t leave without taking a few maternity pictures of her. Mostly because I wanted her to see how we all see her; confident, strong, gorgeous and graceful. She has not had the easiest pregnancy. She spent the first two trimesters constantly sick which is hard enough on its own, but on top of that she is in her last year of law school. There wasn’t a sleep all day option or wait until you feel better… there was only the option to keep pushing through. One might take that opportunity to whine and complain but instead she praises God for the miracle inside her and prays for strength when she needs it. Believe it or not, during these pictures, she was sick as a dog and lacking sleep. But all I see is an incredibly strong woman who will be an amazing mother to her daughter. To my sweet Emmalee, when you’re feeling weak, over whelmed or just plain sick of your clothes not fitting, know that the world sees something completely different and I know Isabella will love to see how gracefully and lovingly you carried her.

We had a perfect evening for maternity photos by Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City. It was unseasonably warm and there were hazy clouds over the sun that created the softest light! Enjoy!
