I'm so excited for Jessica and Josh, on their journey to parenthood! There is something so special about expecting a first child. Not only are they gaining a baby, but they are also transforming from husband and wife, to also mother and father. The two recently announced that their baby is a boy!
When Jessica first messaged me to plan their maternity session, she said she wanted some sunny and glowing portraits, which is my main style for portraiture. The date we initially planned called for rain, so we rescheduled. As luck would have it, the second date we scheduled not only called for rain, but it also called for thunderstorms. I had my camera bag all packed and ready to go, hoping the rain would clear or that we would miss the rain all together. It started pouring about two hours before their portrait session was scheduled. We decided to reschedule. About an hour before the session was supposed to start, the rain cleared up and we decided to go with the plans after all. I am SO glad we did, because we captured such beautiful portraits. The clouds were moody, which added some nice drama to the images. There were also small bursts of sunlight, when the sun came out between clouds for brief periods at a time, so we were able to get some of the back-lit portraits Jessica really wanted. It was perfect.
Thanks so much for booking with me, Jessica and Josh! Congratulations on your baby on the way!
