There is something so special about a couple expecting their first baby. The excitement, anticipation, and imagination of what is to come is palpable. I had the pleasure of photographing these two on a warm weekday evening, and magic was in the air! We were even blessed with some surprise flowers despite the dry summer.
I had the pleasure of photographing a lovey couple at one of my favorites spots earlier this month. There was a gentle calmness between these two expecting parents, and mama was absolutely glowing! It was a warm, quiet evening at the greenbelt, and here are some images from our sunset shoot.
I was very excited to meet these two at Sekrit Theater for a maternity shoot a few weeks ago. This sweet couple absolutely glows with their excitement for the pending birth of their son, and it was such a pleasure to see them again after shooting their birth announcement earlier this year. This dreamy setting also didn’t disappoint! Here are some favorites from our shoot.
Earlier this year, a sweet mama-to-be reached out to me about a pregnancy announcement shoot. She wrote about how she’d already lost two babies, and was praying and believing that this would be her “rainbow baby”, which comes after the emotional storm of a loss. Given our own family’s story, I felt privileged to be asked to help them capture this moment in their lives.
I was so excited to hear from her again many weeks later, that they were ready and feeling great for their shoot! Just entering the second trimester, they’d done genetic screening that showed a healthy baby. Praise Jesus!! The joy and love shared between this couple was palpable, as was their confidence that God is in control and has good things planned for them. I’m grateful that baby-loss families can rely on an infinitely loving God to carry them though both the pain and joy in this life. And with a healthy baby on the way, there is so much reason for celebration!!
