Kellie's Maternity - They are adding a boy in the blonde mix!

Kellie and I play volleyball together. She is super talented, even when she's 8 months pregnant. Yes, I play on a team full of mama die hards. We have a tradition that there is always at least one of our teammates cooking a bun in the oven every season. Well, it was Kellie's turn! She and her husband Pat all ready have two beautiful blonde girls who are going to be the BEST big sisters! To Pat's obvious excitement, their son came just a couple short weeks ago and he is the MOST PRECIOUS little boy in the world! I realized that baby Westin was all ready here and I haven't even blogged their family and maternity session yet! I'm here to rectify that.

We went up Big Cottonwood Canyon toward Solitude Ski Resort for our photo session. There were still a few flowers left when we got there. The dry winter we had really made it hard for wildflowers to come and stick around very long this summer (So pray for a great winter this year!). Family session was first and we did a short mini session with everyone and then a short maternity session in a new Sew Trendy gown that I purchased this year. Emma and Peyton were so great to help me with everything, including dress tossing and avoiding ants that might be able to bite my toes.

"Give mom some hugs." Emma proceeds to crush mom with love. Haha! I love this shot, because she is just loving her mom to pieces!

As we were packing up the sun took one last gorgeous peek through the canyon and I asked the girls if they would like to dance in the grass. It took zero convincing! They took off and we snagged a few more playful pictures in the last sun of the day. Hello summer sun, we love you!
