Pregnancy Announcement in the Mountains

Pregnancy Announcement in the Mountains

A lot of my couples are planning a mountaintop getaway with a little secret…they’re pregnant! I love capturing this big announcement for expecting mamas and daddy’s way to tell their friends and family that a new member is joining their family.

When my husband and I were expecting our first baby, Savvy, we went down to the Blue River and took a few shots of us with our 8 week ultrasound and another with our fishing waders and fly rods, because lord knows we knew we’d be doing a lot less fishing when our first baby came around!

Documenting this time in your lives is a special milestone as it freezes the last time your family is going to look just like this. In a few months, you are going to wonder how you ever lived without that new little baby in your lives and can’t imagine your life without them. Then you’ll have these pictures to look back on and say, oh yes, that was such a sweet (and rested) time in our lives!

Pregnancy Photo Session

When Molly and Austin from Nashville were planning their trip to the mountains, they didn’t know they were expecting. When they found out they had a little bun in the oven, they reached out to me to document their announcement photos. Take a look at their session and see if having your pregnancy announcement documented this way sound just about perfect for you!


Could you spot the ducks in the last pictures? What a perfect session in every way! Congrats Molly and Austin! So excited for you to meet your new baby in July 2020!

If you haven’t met Weston yet, get acquainted! He’s by far the cutest thing I’ve ever seen (I may be a little biased). Here’s Weston at 6 months old.

I am a very proud big sister!

My baby brother, Weston Joseph Parrish, was born on January 6th, 2010 at 12:49 PM. He weighed in at 9 lbs. 6 oz. and is 23 1/2 inches long. He’s a big newborn! Mom and Weston are doing really great! They leave Cox South in Springfield, MO to go home today.

I was in the room with my mom and her husband Joe during labor and delivery, and my goodness what a crazy-miraculous process birth is! It was my first experience seeing a baby born, and to answer the question that is probably going on in your head, no, it did not detour me from wanting children one day! haha

Now that that’s out of the way I also got to take pictures of the process, you know me, always taking pictures! Most of the pictures are just for mommy and daddy to view, but  here are some of the precious pictures that you can see of my baby brother!

Baby Weston right after birth. He has dark blue eyes!

Weston’s grandparents get to see him for the first time!

Look at that precious face! Such a precious little nose. He’s sucking on his lower lip!
