While I was back in Massachusetts for Christmas, I had so much fun shooting Sam and Matt’s maternity session. Sam and I have been friends since we were five years old in Mrs. Palmer’s kindergarten class at St. Mary’s. We trick-or-treated together and spent countless afternoons playing with our Beanie Babies and making up dance routines to Tearin’ Up My Heart. We caused trouble in the back of David Allen’s psychology class, celebrated proms and graduations, and she’s still my only friend that can get away with calling my mom by her first name.
I’m so happy for you, Sam, and so excited I was able to capture this amazing new adventure in your life! I can’t wait to meet and spoil baby Amelia! Matt, your life will never be boring with these ladies 🙂
My favorite couple is having a baby! Colby told me she was pregnant by texting me and saying she’d need some maternity pictures done. I startled the person driving the car I was in when I screamed in happiness! I’ve loved documenting Colby and Bryan’s life together from their engagement to their wedding, and now the imminent arrival of their first child (who is sure to be gorgeous and photogenic just like they are).
We did this shoot at Battle Park in Rocky Mount, NC, but I loved that the fall foliage made it look like we could have been anywhere. The bridge was may favorite feature, and I will definitely be looking to shoot there again next time I visit.
I can’t wait to meet their little guy and love on him (and take his portraits of course), but until then, enjoy Colby and Bryan’s maternity photos!
A few weeks ago, I spent a lovely evening in downtown Wilmington with my friends Joanna and Will, shooting their maternity session along the riverwalk. The weather was absolutely perfect, and since it is still spring, downtown hasn’t become too crowded with tourists yet. This was my first opportunity to shoot downtown, and the scenery, between the bridge, the riverwalk, the old buildings, and the battleship, is just beautiful. Joanna and Will’s excitement and love for their new family shows through the photos. We had our session pretty late in Joanna’s pregnancy, as you can probably tell, and the Richardsons have since welcomed baby William into the world! I’m so excited to meet him! You may see some photos of him on the blog one day, but for now, check out the rest of Joanna and Will’s maternity session
