I know her from when we both worked at Disneyland in the parade department many years ago. When I found out she was going to be in town, I contacted her immediately because there is no other photographer I trust more or feel more comfortable with to capture this precious time in our lives. Lindsey always makes us feel so comfortable when she takes photos for us, and we really wanted to do a maternity shoot because having your first child is such a huge moment in your life and marriage.  My husband and I have been together for almost 10 years. When we first started dating we talked about kids and how we both wanted them someday. When we were finally ready to start trying, we were so excited and ready to start this next chapter in our relationship. Our pregnancy journey was not the easiest, but we are well aware that many have to deal with way worse situations than we did. It took us over a year to get pregnant the first time, and when we found out we were pregnant we were over the moon! Unfortunately, we miscarried that baby a few weeks after we found out. We were devastated but still very hopeful. Our doctor told us to wait a cycle before trying again, and we got pregnant two months later! The second time around we were obviously scared and fearful of having another miscarriage, but we remained hopeful and excited at the possibility of another baby. Sadly, we miscarried this baby a few weeks short of that 12 week mark, and we were completely devastated, confused, and just angry. The second time around was way worse than the first. I’m not sure why, but I think you just feel like there’s no way you would be put through that again. Our doctor was still hopeful and told us to give it some time before trying again. We had all intentions of following his orders, but we actually got pregnant the following month!! I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant and so incredibly grateful God has blesssed us with a healthy pregnancy and baby. The whole pregnancy process was frightening to me because I was fearful of losing another baby, but everyday and week got easier. We had friends and family praying for us and supporting us every step of the way, so that made our journey much easier. On top of that, my husband and I both have the most amazing parents who have set such beautiful examples for us and loved us unconditionally, so we are beyond grateful for this beautiful journey and ready to meet our little girl in July.”  Kelsey, Expectant MotherMaternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0002 Maternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0003

 

“Kelsey and I met while performing at Disneyland together, and I adored her from the start. She is kind-hearted and full of incredible grace, not only as a talented dancer, but as a devoted friend, sacrificial wife, and now a beautiful mother-to-be! I had the honor of photographing their wedding a few years ago, and was thrilled when they let me know they are now expecting their first baby! Their connection is radiant, their story is covered in perseverance and love, and I am so fortunate to have captured this season of sweet anticipation for them! 

I fell in love with photographing motherhood once we had our first baby. Seeing her grow and flourish so quickly has taught me to slow down and notice the little things… and it’s such a gift to have photos to look back on the way a moment felt with her. Giving tangible memories to the mothers I work with is fulfilling beyond words because we share the same treasure: To live fully present with our children, and to keep those moments forever.” Lindsey, PhotographerMaternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0005 Maternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0004 Maternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0006 Maternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0007 Maternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0008 Maternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0009 Maternity Photography by Lindsey Gage and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0010
