Another session where we had to keep rescheduling because of freezing temperatures or rain, but finally I got to photograph this beautiful Mama. Love that she also brought her sweet baby along – the first baby loving on the first baby, oh, just love! I kept watching the sun go in and out of the clouds all day. (I finally had to stop looking) And, for most of the session, the sun was trying to hide behind the clouds. Oh, and it was just so muddy and add on a wind advisory. I think even with allll of that going on, we were able to capture some sweet memories. That baby will be here so soon! Can’t wait to meet him!

According to Mom..

What was your favorite part of the session? Why did you choose this location? My favorite part was Becky and I making crazy noises trying to get my dog Luna to look at the camera or at me! I chose to take my pictures in the field because I love being outdoors, and I love the way Becky is able to capture the light!

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? I was mostly worried that the sun wouldn’t cooperate, but Becky was great! She was able to find the light and tell me where to stand before it disappeared behind the clouds.

Do you have a theme for your nursery? What has been the most fun part of shopping for your baby? My nursery theme is based on adventure! I have foxes, and other woodland animals throughout the room. We also have a fun tee pee and a cozy book nook space already filled with books! The most fun I’ve had shopping for baby Lenzen has been picking out our crib. We decided to go with a light grey crib that can convert into a toddler bed and a full size bed! I think it’s beautiful!

How did you and your husband meet, and where was your first date? Luke and I met on match.com believe it or not!!!! ha ha ha! Our first date was a bust! Poor Luke took me to a beer place and found out quickly that all I drink is wine! But the conversation and our chemistry saved the day! The rest is history!

Do you have any other pets or little ones? Luna is our fur baby…she is an English lab. She was trained as a diabetic service dog, but is now retired and spoiled rotten!

What is your favorite tv show to watch together? Right now we’re watching the latest episodes of House of Cards on Netflix, but we enjoy a “fixer-upper” show called Holmes Inspection when there is nothing new to watch. We are constantly doing DIY projects together to our house!

The first few months of the year can be tricky when it comes to outdoor sessions. You just never know what the weather will be like – 80 degrees, snowing, or just plain cold. We had to reschedule a few times for the weather, and we weren’t sure if it was going to work out this day. I think there was even a super low chance of rain, but it just started looking dark around the time of their session. We moved quickly and then it started sprinkling. By the time we were walking to the parking lot, it was raining. This mama looked stunning, and these two were just so sweet together. Can’t wait to meet and photograph their baby soon!

Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it’s okay to cry with you
Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I’ve been near God
And that’s the way it ought to be…

‘Cause you’ve been more than a friend to me
You fight off my enemies
‘Cause you’ve spoken the Truth over my life
And you’ll never know what it means to me
Just to know you’ve been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
More than you’ll ever know,

You had faith, when I had none
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn’t think I could find the strength to sing
And all the while I’m hoping that I’ll
Do the kind of praying for you that you’ve done for me
And that’s the way it ought to be…

You have carried me
You have taken upon a burden that wasn’t your own
And may the blessing return to you
A hundredfold

This radiant Mama has been a best friend of mine since we were fourteen. I met her and also this bff at the same time and we have been friends for years. It is always such a treat to spend time with both of them, and we got to hang out and celebrate this sweet mama at her shower in the morning before I took her portraits. They have both been such encouragers to me, and I’m so very thankful for the influence they’ve had in my life that has shaped me so much. They are truly gifts. (I might be crying a little bit as I type this post)  They stood by me when I married Michael and both made it to Raleigh for the birth of my first child. I love these two girls so much, and I’m so thankful for them. I was ecstatic when Brooke called to tell me she was pregnant, and loved photographing her maternity portraits.

Just to tell you a little bit about how this day went – we did have the shower early in the morning until about mid day. If you know anything about me, I do not like shooting in bad light. Mid day – like is never going to happen. We had to make it happen this day, and so, let me tell you, we did a lot of hiking until I found a spot I could be happy with. It was probably the least comfortable spot on the whole property, too, but Brooke managed to look radiant and happy. We were covered in all kinds of field debris, and I definitely did not wear hiking or jumping across creek shoes. (yes, we jumped across a creek. I was looking for snakes at all times.) That being said, we laughed a lot and definitely made a memory. And most of all, were able to capture the love these two have for each other and for their sweet baby on the way. (Soooo soon!!! I cannnnnot wait!!!!!!!) And if you know Brooke, she is full of so much joy, laughter + giggles, and I loved that this session captured that about her.

According to Brooke…

What was your favorite part of the session? My favorite part of the seasion was being in the wooded areas. I liked how the brush and trees photographed…the light was lovely!

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? I was about 35 weeks pregnant and felt a tad chubby with my baby bump popping out so far! However, in the photos I felt Becky captured my best angles. (:

Do you have a theme for your nursery? Yes, our nursery has a bright and whimsical bird theme! 

How would your describe your perfect Saturday as a family? I love slow mornings where we make a big breakfast and go for a walk around the farm.

How did you meet and where was your first date? We met through a friend and we had a sushi date and afterward we went on a walk and played basketball as it began to snow.

What is your favorite TV Show you watch together? NC State sports

Their sweet little one was born only one week after this mama’s maternity portraits. (I can’t wait to meet their baby girl soon!) Her mama was just glowing the morning of her portraits – she is just stunning! She picked a beautiful gown to wear and also brought a flower crown she had worn for a portrait session right when they found out they were expecting, how special! We had beautiful light the morning of her session, and it was such a joy to meet this Mama!
