Summertime Family Maternity Photos

Summertime Family Maternity Photography

These beautiful family maternity photos from Emily Heizer, Photography with Flair capture a sweet family of four, with one on the way. Mom Stephanie was 2 weeks from her due date in these photos with her three little boys: 5-year-old twins Grant & Kellen and 3-year-old Lennox. While they are celebrating the new life that is about to join them, they are also mourning the unexpected loss of Stephanie’s husband, Justin, who passed away midway through this pregnancy. Stephanie wanted the session to reflect their life as it is right now, which is in a state of healing, while also bringing Justin’s presence into the images. He was an avid swimmer, so the pool made the perfect spot for some shots. Later they piled into Justin’s perfectly restored Volkswagen Bus, his pride and joy that he had worked on so diligently. Such a wonderful idea to include his memory in these photos. See more in the full gallery.

    Thank you so much for doing this feature! Stephanie and the kids look BEAUTIFUL! The new baby is here and new baby girl “Johnna Justin” is just as beautiful as her big brothers and her Mama! A Memorial Fund in honor of Justin, to benefit the kids education has been set up if anyone is interested or willing to lend a hand towards their future. I linked up my website link directly to my post about the family, which has that information, or you can go here to head directly to the post here:
