When Heather first reached out to me for information about a maternity + newborn session collection, she had a lot of questions, but her biggest concerns were about what to wear. Heather has a more casual style but was interested in dressing up for this occasion. It didn't take her long to share her concerns about not being "very fashionable." And to be honest, she sounded a lot like myself! :) So we scheduled an in-person wardrobe consultation for her right away. She came into the studio and tried on a few dresses and also brought in a few pieces of her own favorite clothing. We worked together to create a plan for her maternity session wardrobe for her and her family that we were both excited about!
When she shared with me that she was expecting again I knew I just had to find a way to get her in front of my camera! I was so excited the day she came into the studio for her maternity session. Here are a few of my favorite pictures of our time together. We may have spent most of our time together talking, but, that's just what we do! Ha!
I had such a wonderful time getting to know Melissa and hearing the story of how God redeemed the many years she spent waiting to become a mama. The time I was able to spend with her was truly such an encouragement to me!
Melissa reached out to me in early January and since she was just a few weeks out from her baby’s due date, I wanted to get her in the studio for a consultation as soon as possible (all consultations are complimentary with no obligation to book a session). We squeezed her in within the week and she decided to move forward and book both her maternity and newborn session together. She also told me she would be the only participant during her maternity session and she wanted to use it as a time to really celebrate this season and embrace the journey she has been through to get to where she is today. What a beautiful story she has!
Katie is the owner of a new local boutique here in Lynchburg, Virginia, Woven Devotion. I love the name of the boutique and thought it fit so well to describe this season of her life. Not only did she open her store in 2016, but that was the same year her body wove together her precious little boy. Pregnancy is amazing and beautiful, isn't it?
I have been so excited to share this session! While my clients primarily choose to have their maternity sessions photographed at the studio, in the field, or in the garden, I do have a few clients who request entirely different locations. I am happy to go wherever my clients ask and for this particular session, I photographed this beautiful expectant couple in the nursery they designed just for their sweet little girl.
