A Mama Spotlight - Photographing Nicole's Pregnancy

For our first “Mama Spotlight”, I thought it only fitting to feature my best friend Nicole. She started her journey into motherhood at right about the same time that I re-established Captured Forever Photography. Naturally, I decided to take pictures along the way.

First stop was the gender reveal party.

Nicole gathered friends and family at their home in La Mesa and went with your traditional giant balloon full of confetti reveal. To no one’s surprise really, there was a pink explosion ( apparently there is such thing as a “navy all girls curse” ).  Nicole and David began the baby girl name negotiations. Reagan Marie came out as the winner.



Next was the maternity photos. Nicole is a country girl at heart, so we headed out to the Steel Canyon Bridge to capture some truly magical and rustic photos. Check out those boots!

The baby shower approached quickly and before we knew it, it was go time and Reagan was ready to make her grand entrance. I was so excited when Nicole asked me photograph her birth story. It was truly a beautiful experience. I got to watch my best friend of 26 years meet her sweet baby girl for the first time. It was truly a life changing moment. Nicole became a whole new person in my eyes and I am SO proud of the woman she is a mother. I was also instantly in love with Reagan. She is the perfect mix of her mom and dad!

Y’all better get used to looking at this adorable face because I plan to be taking pictures of this sweet girl for many years to come!
