Maternity session in Nevada City, California

This afternoon was spent with Blake and her sweet first born. Loved capturing her beautiful radiant self to incapsulate her second pregnancy with another sweet baby boy. These photos were taken in her mothers craftsman home settled in Nevada City in Northern California. I adore capturing the love between mother and child. The bond between these two (and three) are so apparent. 

There is a book that I have been reading lately that has demonstrated the bonds we have with our family unit and how much it influences our life. Hold Me Tight by Sue Johnson  explains how our childhood bonds effect our intimate relationships throughout our life! So inspiring! 

As stated on Sue's bio on her website she states, "Sue Johnson is founding Director of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy and Distinguished Research Professor at Alliant University in San Diego, California, as well as Professor Emeritus, Clinical Psychology, at the University of Ottawa, Canada."

She also explains, "

EFT stands for Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy.

This approach to seeing relationships – as an attachment bond – and shaping more loving relationships is leading the couple relationship field into a new understanding of romantic love.  read more »"


I highly suggest picking up her book!
