I have a confession to make. I am one of those women who absolutely LOVED being pregnant. And before you think that I just had easy pregnancies haha, let me tell you, I didn't! But there was something so incredible to me about carrying another life inside me, and playing a part in that miracle. It's probably why maternity sessions are one of my favorite things to photograph. I love the ability to capture a women during such a pivotal time in her life and show her and others how stunning and strong she is.
Today I am featuring one of my favorite sessions of all time...Kasey and Keith's sunset maternity portraits. It was one of those sessions that really just had everything in alignment...gorgeous mama to be, adorable couple, perfect weather, and breathtaking sunsets. We shot at one of my favorite locations, Samuell Farms, and as per my usual, I had them trek the total opposite of where every other photog was working, in search of the perfect lighting. During our hour long session, we were able to use several different backgrounds, and since the light can shift so quickly during that time of day; it resulted in giving several beautiful skylines. Kasey was SUCH a trooper the whole time, even when I asked if we could walk to opposite ends of the property to get the unblocked sunset shots. As we walked between pictures, I loved getting to visit with Kasey and Keith. They are such a sweet couple, and so in love with each other and their sweet baby girl, Genesis. I remember as I was taking some portraits of Kasey alone, Keith was standing off to the side. He said to me, "I have the most beautiful wife in the world."
Kasey and Keith, thank you both for trusting me to capture these precious memories for you. May God continue to bless you and your beautiful family!
Perfectly Pink Sky
As we were wrapping up the session and beginning to leave, we saw how the sky how transformed perfectly into bright pink and purple. We had to stop and grab some final shots in front of it. I smile whenever I see this picture because I truly believe that God was helping us to celebrate baby Genesis and the miracle of life that evening.
