A few weeks ago I had the extreme pleasure of photographing Dan and Caitlyn’s maternity session on the softest, warm, glowy evening here in Lancaster. Fast forward to this week and I am anxiously on stand by watching my phone for the call that this little boy is making his debut! The life of a birth photographer is one I am truly falling more and more in love with. And after witnessing how sweet Dan is to Caitlyn, how strong of a bond they share and how their interactions between one another are so uplifting and natural – it makes me so confident that this birth story is going to be nothing but a blessing to be a part of. 🙂
I was beyond excited when my friend Laura contacted me to photograph her maternity photos with her husband Blaine! Laura is one of my fellow Bachelor lovin’ fans so I can’t wait until we have another little member joining us at our Monday night viewing parties! Laura is due in May with their little girl, Kate. I can’t wait for this little cutie to make her debut! She’s bound to be a sweetheart with parents of gold. It was such a blessing to photograph Laura + Blaine and that adorable baby bump. Here are a few of my favorites!
Well, today on the blog I am kicking it way back. This past Summer I had the absolute pleasure to photograph my dear friends Kent and Ashleigh in their first pregnancy! Kent, Ashleigh and I have been friends for awhile now and I’ve been blessed to photograph Kent’s proposal, first engagement photos, their one year anniversary photos, and now their maternity photos! Kent and Ashleigh run an amazing photography and videography business together (they were the videographers for my wedding!). Kent and I have enjoyed many years brainstorming business ideas together, shooting weddings together, and collaborating any chance we can get. So it’s pretty clear that these people are super special to me.
Kent and Ashleigh welcomed their son Kai into the world on September 6th around 1:22am. He is the cutest little thing, and I just can’t wait to meet him! I love reflecting back on these photos now, knowing what little man was growing inside of Ash. Kai you are so loved by such sweet, amazing parents and family and friends. I can’t wait to see the places you will go little babe!
Here are a few of my absolute favorites from our time together!
