Well things sure have been busy around here and I'm a little behind on blogging. Of course, I knew this shoot (and soon to be followed by the baby shower!) needed to be posted before Baby Schoener gets here which could be any day now! This summer we got to go to Sun Valley to photograph Katie and Brad's gorgeous wedding at Galena Summit, so we decided to bring the fams for a little getaway weekend. The Sunday after the wedding, we got to poke around Sun Valley and do a little shopping- then go scout out a mountiany location for Matt and Nichole's maternity shoot. We found a lovely place and I couldn't have asked for better light or a more beautiful couple. It's always so much fun to photograph people that you know and love- I get to make them do pretty much whatever I want and tell them (Matt) when they make dumb faces! So if you didn't know, there's a tiny human inside that belly. His name is not yet released, so in the meantime we've needed something to refer to him as. It started out as 'monkey' then evolved into "monk" and now for some reason it's "Monkle." It's really a horrible name for a baby, but we love him so much already! I have a feeling that with his dad, he'll go through about a million different nicknames that he'll hate (He calls my baby, who's name is Crew- "Freddy Crew-ger")!
Anyway, would you look at Nichole? Seriously, how stunning is she? And the quilt that they are laying on is one that Nichole made our of the fabric from their wedding. Embroidered on the edge is their wedding date and "Super Day" -- I can't wait to do many more family pictures of them with that quilt and another little guy sitting on it with them. Enjoy!
