Ashley & Kyle

Kyle and Ashley are our dear friends and neighbors, and it’s been an absolute JOY to walk with them throughout pregnancy!

Ashley’s been a TROOPER – from throwing up 3-7x a day for the first 16 weeks of pregnancy – to dealing with all the covid craziness and changes in plans with baby showers and not being able to have family visit – it’s been a tough and wild ride. But it will also be so worth it soon! Hands down I know they both will be incredible parents.

We had been planning to do a maternity shoot for awhile – but came up with the snow idea just a day before after a ton of rain came through and we realized that there would be lots of snow up at Mt. Laguna. As pictured – I did this shoot in snow with my one year old on my back! A new first for me as a mom. 😉 After we all froze, we attempted to do a bit of sledding, which was also a first for me. And HOLY SMOKES those sleds go fast! I was definitely not prepared and may even have got some air on a hill, haha!

My little guy Micah was already traumatized by the cold to enjoy any sledding, so next time we do snow it will have to not be preceded by an hour long photo shoo, haha. Glad we did this though, and can’t wait to meet baby Vinton!
