Beautiful Mamma ~ 36 weeks | Pine City MN Photographer

I am a believer that people are pointed in directions in life for reasons unknown.. my motto always been “everything happens for a reason”.  Some people judge, and try to fight the true life balance. I have come to terms with my faith, and trust in god that my path is the right path for me and I follow it without hesitation. I take things as they come and accept new experiences without judgment or fear. I believe by me doing this, it has led to the best things in my life and has left hate and fear behind.   So a quick story that made me really think of all this, was a few weeks ago, I kept seeing Ambers name suggested as friend on facebook, no lie! lol  I knew of her, and I knew she was a great artist/photographer. We just had never had the opportunity to connect. So, I listened to our wonderful facebook prompt and sent her a friend request. It wasn’t long after she messaged me and we connected! She asked me if I would be willing to document her maternity, I of coarse said yes.  After meeting for Coffee and talking about all kinds of things I think it’s safe to say we have a lot in common! I’m from the north, and she’s from the north graduating only 20 minutes from where I graduated from!!..  creepy!??  lol.. just kidding but really it’s nice to meet a caring person who has wonderful qualities. Not long before this I had let go of someone in the best grace I possibly could. Instead of retaliating and being ugly, I chose to follow my path with open eyes and great things have happened, and i’m truly thankful for that, i’m always excited an patient to see what’s next, I do feel like I was able to meet Amber for a reason, and that feels pretty special.

On to Ambers actual maternity session! and no more blabbing lol.. We had been watching the weather for a couple days, there were storms popping up the day before, and that whole morning.. I wasn’t sure if it would work out but, I seen a great opportunity.. I changed our start time, and Amber picked the location!  I think it turned out perfect! The storm that rolled in right behind her came strait at us. We really were in the right place at the right time!! Enjoy these dramatic skies, and this beautiful mamma with her growing family! <3
