Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful moments in life. It is something so incredibly unique and special and is one of my favorite seasons of life to capture. It becomes even more memorable when you are able to capture the pregnancy journey for someone else who has played a significant role in your own life. I met Ashley in 2016 when Jeremy and I were starting the IVF process. She was part of the incredible team that helped make our baby dreams come true. She was one of the phenomenal nurses we met along the way I will never forget her upbeat and compassionate energy from day one. She wasn't our main nurse and yet I felt like we connected instantly. She guided us through the scary process of IVF injections and truly went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and confident through the entire IVF process. When she contacted me shortly after Fin was born to tell me she was expecting I instantly started bawling. I was so honored that she remembered I was a newborn photographer and that she chose me to capture this season of her life.
I met her and her hubby in one of my favorite locations in the middle of January. When we were planning her session we expected a FREEZING cold day and made sure we would have a location close enough to the car in case we needed to warm her up midway through. Well the universe smiled down on us that day because we were blessed and shocked to have 70 degree weather. Yes you read that correctly 70 degrees in the middle of January! I do believe I was sweating by the end of the session! HA!! We had the most incredible light and they were an absolute blast to explore the woods with. I loved celebrating this time with them and LOVED every single photo we took. Here are some of my favorites (yes there are a lot :) )
