Julianne and Dan :: Maternity Photos :: Denver

Pregnancy is such an exciting time- as you watch your body change and know that there is a new life forming inside of you, there is a magical excitement in the air. This maternity shoot was an especially meaningful one, because after an exceptionally difficult pregnancy and 16 weeks of bed rest, my brave, stoic little sister is about to embark on a new life journey with her amazing husband.


I am putting every ounce of good and healthy energy and prayers out there that the next step will be easier for you than what you’ve gone through. I love you so much and can’t wait to document this new little life that is about to come into the world. I admire you beyond words and love you very much!

Your sister and “auntie-to-be”,

It’s great to finally see some pictures of you guys — and that little bundle inside of you! You two are going to make the most amazing parents to that little baby. We can’t wait to be a part of the ‘parent’ circle with you and celebrate the journey of parenthood together. We love you very much, and can’t wait to hear the news… any day now!! xoxo – KCM&E
