Chico CA Maternity Photography:: Awaiting Baby Z

There are no words to describe how sacred and honored I was to take these photographs for my dear soul sister and brother. As a photographer it is always great when you find a beautiful location to take portraits, maternity or family photos, and a big win when the location has your clients favorite tree. The willow tree is one of beauty and grace and has a calling to Elysia’s heart. So when they came into town for their blessing way from Oregon, we knew how special it was going to be to have this symbol as the backdrop to their maternity session.

We had so much fun underneath that willow tree taking these photos. The joy in their hearts as they prepare for the arrival of a new baby boy is clear to see. The love that shines within them inspires me, and gives me so much love and passion for what I do. Every woman deserves to be honored, to feel beautiful and have this magical time in her life captured.

As I edited and processed the images to prepare for delivery to the expecting couple, something truly special and magical was revealed. You see, among the branches of that willow tree, while kneeling down to kiss his sweet babe, the sun shown down ever so brightly onto them. And through that sunlight, a rainbow kisses the shadow of Elysia’s precious belly. A rainbow for their Rainbow Baby. A symbol of hope and love after loss, this rainbow signifies a connection and bond of the spirit and love of their baby lost, but never forgot. As I shared this image with my lovely sister, my heart was at peace and full of gratitude to know that I was able to honor her and journey with photography.

Blessed beyond measure, our family is so thrilled to welcome this new baby into the world who is already so very loved!  To my soul sister, I give thanks and envelope you with light and love for a beautiful birth dance to come!


Beneath the willow tree
they dream of you.
Envision that first embrace
Their hearts glow
Beneath the willow tree
~yours truly
