Baby MJ Maternity Pics <3

Happy Thursday! Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

I’ll be posting two maternity sessions to the blog. So adorable. First up is LaShonda and Marc and little baby MJ. Absolutely love this couple and can’t wait to meet their lil’ bambino!

I’m going to kick this off with one of my favorite maternity photos I’ve ever taken. = LOVE.

Thanks so much for coming to see me for baby bump pics! Good luck welcoming little MJ into the world!

Much love,


Trish, Bryon and Baby Molly <3

Hope everyone had a rockin’ Easter filled with many of my nemesis, Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs.  Goddd, why are they soooo gooooooodddddd?  Seriously!  I am obsessed with these even more than the Reese’s Hearts and Reese’s Trees. 

Lots of my high school friends follow my photography and blogs (gracias!!) and those in that category would know the adorable Mama Trish.  : )  They are expecting their first baby SOOOON and I couldn’t be happier for them!

She’s one of those people that truly is just as sweet and genuine as she is beautiful!


Needless to say, everyone was thrilled when they announced the big news.  Miss Molly is getting ready to make her big debut just before summer in Chi-town.  This little gal is ready to get her big city shoppin’ on.  And we all know such a stylish couple is guaranteed to be totin’ around a stylish little fashionista!

Note the adorable jewels.  Trish sells Lia Sophia, too, so she has the cutest accessories EVER.  Here is her link if you are interested in a party, book party or just ordering something:  CLICK ME!

 Trish and I have religiously followed each other’s blogs for a few years now…or however long we’ve been blogging.  It was hilarious because when I finally got to meet her husband at their maternity photo shoot, I really felt like I already knew him.  Ha!  I was practically at their wedding a couple years ago in Ireland thanks to the fabulous photos Trish posted after the big day.  If you know Trish, I highly recommend going to her Facebook and getting her blog link.  It’s really cute : )

They actually came out for mini-sessions the morning of her baby shower.  One of her shower guests had purchased a super generous Ann Steward Photography gift card for her as a shower present, so I knew I had to allow some extra time for some additional maternity photos of fabulousness.  Since they actually live in Chicago, I am not sure when else she’d be able to use the card (I know it’s not easy to pack up a baby and drive three hours to someone for photos) in the near future.  At the time, I was hoping it wasn’t obvious I was extending their mini-session a little bit – I didn’t want to ruin the surprise : )

During the session, we talked about how Trish and I love spending money and our husbands have heart attacks over it : )  We knew this, of course, from the blogs.  I am hoping Kurt and Bryon get to meet someday – they would get along great.  We won’t let them compare notes too long, though.  It could be detrimental to our shopping funds.  Ha!

OMG, look at those little shoes and the “Love at First Sight” frame with the ultrasound pic.  Dying over the cuteness.

Good luck, Trish and Bryon!  We will all be awaiting for the big news of Miss Molly’s arrival and hope to see lots of pics and blogs related to the adorable little princess!! 

Thanks soooo much for coming out to the farm!  xoxo! 

Mucho love,

Ann : )
