I had the honor of photographing the S family as they await the arrival of their newest blessing, little Molly.  This mama will always hold a special place in my heart, because she was one of the people who encouraged me to pursue photography as a business, so much so that she signed up for her maternity session months ago!

This couple is so sweet to each other; the love between them is so beautiful.  Their faith and love for one another were obvious even during our short session, and I think those feelings are palpable even in their images!  The weather wasn’t being very cooperative, but we didn’t let that stop us–we moved inside, where we captured some great pictures on the stairs… and these stairs are particularly important since these two just finished rebuilding them from the ground up themselves!  I love the idea that this family will have pictures that capture the beginning of their family, right in the same house that Dad grew up in and that they are working to make special for their own little ones.

Just a few of my favorites…

One of my favorites… I love photographing couples, and ones on the cusp of such a joyous moment are particularly rewarding!
