Seriously… this Daniel Island maternity session will forever be one of my favorites! In fact, this location may be the very reason I decided that I liked doing outdoor sessions…..and I kinda found it by accident while scouting another area. So you can imagine my excitement when Chelsea and Nick said they loved the area too AND wanted to do their maternity photos there. Win…win!
Okay…I’ll calm down! As much as I loved the location and Chelsea’s dress (now added to our client closet!), the connection she and Nick had was the best. It was the perfect reminder of WHY maternity photos are so important. Sure, you have a baby to celebrate, but it’s also a time to celebrate YOUR relationship. Moms and Dads, read this and remind yourself of it when you’re in the thick of parenthood and covered in bodily fluids…DO NOT forget about each other. Remember this moment and how you felt. I know it’s cheesy, but I promise it’s true!
Chelsea and Nick, I’ve told you a million + times now, but THANK YOU! It has been such a pleasure getting to know you two and I cannot wait for your baby boy to join you. You are going to be amazing parents!
See why Daniel Island has completely stollen my heart? This area. These people. I am so blessed to call this my job!
& this photo ^ also reminds me of why I do what I do and why motherhood has become my passion. There is something special about the anticipation and even the reflection. During all of my sessions I typically tell parents to take a walk and just be…and to take the time to reflect on what has been and then anticipate what’s to come. Sure, it can be a little awkward at first, but without fail these are always my favorite images!
