I had the true honor and pleasure of photographing Hellen on Sunday, September 21st. She entered and won my "Free Maternity Portrait Session". When I told her she won she couldn't believe it. In fact, she told her friend "This can't be real, I don't win anything". She was such a sweetheart and willing to go to great lengths to help us capture beautiful sunset maternity portraits for her.
Hellen is from a small town called Lone Pine. Her and her boyfriend met each other while being stationed together in Southern California. Get this, they are BOTH United States Marines! Hellen is currently stationed in Southern California. Sadly her boyfriend will be missing not only the birth of their first child, but also the first 5 months of her life as he is currently deployed. Though it has been hard having her boyfriend deployed during her first pregnancy, Hellen is comforted by his phone calls and emails. He always has a way of cheering her up and making her day better.
I don't know about you, but I think Hellen looks amazing. Does she even look like she's 33 weeks pregnant! I couldn't believe it either, but she is. I personally know that I can't wait for her to share these beautiful portraits with her boyfriend, family and friends!
I hope you all enjoy the images, please feel free to share the. Be sure to check me out on social media!
Have a blessed day,
