I could talk about how I've known the Kieners for more than 15 years. How we've been college roommates, travel companions, bridesmaids, poker opponents, drinking buddies, and neighbors during that time. And how our daughters were born a little over a month apart and have become besties. But all of that would still seem inadequate. So instead I'll just leave you with a set of images - a mixture of candid at-home family moments and posed maternity portraits - that I took of this beautiful family of three very shortly before they became a family of four.
Natalie and Michael love to travel. And they're expecting their first child this summer. They wanted to convey both of these important things in a whimsical pregnancy announcement and asked me to take their photos. There is nothing more fun than working with people who are down to brave freezing temps and indulge my creative whims for the sake of cool photos. Here are some of my favorite images from the shoot with them and the resulting announcement which Natalie and I worked together to design.
