Simone & Aleks | Couple’s Maternity Session | Fayetteville Maternity Photographer

When I was a teenager, my friends and I tried to hook them up at all costs…deep there we knew they were meant to be together! A few years later, they started dating and now they are married and expecting their first baby, Davi. I couldn’t ask for a better man to take care and love one of my best friends. 🙂

Simone is one of those girls who always wanted to be a mom and after these 26 years of friendship I know her so well that I’m sure she will be the best mom ever! I feel extremely blessed to have captured Simone and Aleks love for each other and the beginning of their family.

Si and Aleks, I hope you like your images! They came from my heart. ♥♥♥



Simone, you are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!!

    Oh she’s so beautiful! I did NOT look like this serene and glowing when I was pregnant. Love the one of her dipping her toes in the pool.ReplyCancel

My dear country…I missed you!

I haven’t been to Brazil in a year and a half…and I have to confess that my mind was already giving signs of separation anxiety! 🙂 I needed to come, here I feel at ease…I can speak Portuguese, be very close to the nature, eat the food I miss every day and recharge my batteries with my family and friends! I love my country dearly!

This time I decide to be a turist in my on own country and I started paying attention on so many things I didn’t before. How diverse is the vegetation in Brazil, it is amazing! So many different kinds of plants! My stay in Rio was super quick! But enough for me to drop my bags at my sister’s apartment and walk to see the Sugar Loaf! The place below is one of my favorites in the world to go for a walk. When I saw all the beauty, all I could do was to thank God and the Universe to be able to see all of it!

    I absolutely adore the images of you, Carol, so carefree and playful. You’re one HOT Brazilian Baby! 🙂ReplyCancel

My favorite image…

…I love that my dad could capture us in such a candid way, I think candid photos are the ones that means the most… my sister and I, we are only one year apart. Even though she keeps saying she looks younger and for her delight people ask frequently which one is older, I’m the youngest, the one in red. This image brings such joy to my heart and good memories of my childhood in a small town surrounded by nature…I miss Brazil… and I can’t believe I will see my country in a few days. I’m coming to Brazil to spend Mother’s day with my family!
