To say that I'm excited for this couple is a complete understatement. Leah and Daniel are expecting their first little bundle of love in December! They are having a baby boy, and I am just over the moon thrilled for them! I've had the honor of photographing their engagement and wedding, maternity announcement, and now their delightfully sweet maternity session! Leah and Daniel met me at one of my favorite parks, when the leaves were vibrant yellow! Since they had never been there before, I showed them some trails and playgrounds where they can someday bring their little guy and tell him all about how Mommy and Daddy came to this very same place before he was born. And they can tell him just how very excited they were thinking about holding him, snuggling him, and sharing nature's beauty with him! Leah and Daniel, I hope you enjoy some of my many favorites from this gorgeous autumn evening!
Throughout the session, Daniel would just stare at his wife, mesmerized by her. And so this image is definitely a favorite of mine.
Daniel was standing off to one side while I took some portraits of Leah. He kept telling her how beautiful she was, right then, right there, in that light. I totally agree with you, Daniel!
Leah, you are beautiful. Truly beautiful.
Yes, the scenery is quite lovely. The way these two held each other and just breathed together is my favorite part.
Leah and Daniel brought along the cutest little baby shoes as well as one of their favorite pieces of decor from their son's nursery! Jackson is such a fantastic name!
We were blessed with some pretty amazing light during their session, and I just couldn't let them leave without soaking in some of the last bit of the evening light! A favorite!
Leah and Daniel! I know I've told you a hundred times how happy I am for you, so I'll just say what
an honor it has been to document each of these wonderful occasions in your lives since meeting you a few years ago. You're about to embark on one of life's most amazing-crazy-awesome-miraculous adventures together, and I'm so excited to see your sweet family grow! Baby Jackson, I cannot wait to meet you! xoxo
