Anticipation | The Burtons

I am in love with this family.  I might as well start a fan club and name myself the president.

It’s amazing what happens when two parents decide to absolutely put their family first.  They just radiate happiness and have a blast together.  Of course, I’m sure raising a family of little boys is no cake walk, but Ashlee and Corey never seem to forget what’s important.  You can sense their dedication to each other and their boys when you’re around them.  In June, they’ll be adding one more to the bunch.  And they couldn’t be more thrilled about it!

Maternity photoshoots have a special place in my heart.  There’s nothing like watching the process as a family grows to add another member.  Of course, everyone loves newborn sessions, myself included.  And how could you not?  Those tiny hands and feet, a sweet, perfect new child.  But I also love it when moms give me a chance to photograph the “before” stage.  Everyone anxious to meet the new member, the excitement of the other siblings, the quiet anticipation and of an expecting mother.  It’s a brief but beautiful moment in time.  I’m so glad I was able to take an afternoon and enjoy it with the Burtons.



Corey cracks me up:



Mom with her pile o’ boys:




After the family fun, Corey took the boys home while I slipped off with Ashlee for some solo, pregnant mama goodness.  To me, pregnant women are absolutely beautiful, and I think you’ll agree that Ashlee takes this beauty to new heights!

Stunning, you say?  Yes, she is!



This beautiful mama is also a trained dancer.  SO graceful!

Ashlee and Corey – thank you for sharing your family with me for an afternoon.  That new baby boy is going to be so blessed to have you as parents.  I can’t wait to meet him.
