Expecting Joy | Lynchburg Maternity Photographer

While I am busy shooting engagement sessions and weddings right now, which I love, I got excited to change things up a little this past week and spend some time with my friend Joy capturing a big milestone in her life. I love to photograph couples - whether it's a wedding day, an every-day, or a even a maternity session. This session was so much fun because they quickly adjusted to being in front of the camera and were able to just be real despite the fact that I was acting like a total paparazzi. We laughed so much during our time together! Joy and her family are expecting their third precious baby girl to join them in just a few weeks and I am so very excited for her! I love Joy because she is so real - she is real about the challenges of being a mom, the challenges of pregnancy, but also the blessings she has in her life. She is just so genuine - about it all - and that is a refreshing quality to find these days. I enjoy every chance we have to talk about life, balancing being work-at-home-moms, and plans for our futures. (Psst, Joy is the awesomeness behind The Goose Beary Shop!) I can't wait to meet her precious Tacy and watch as Joy makes the beautiful adjustment from work-at-home mom of two to work-at-home mom of three. I admire her so much!
