Avyanna and Phoenix were blessed with their little “blueberry” to be born this November. When we chatted about locations for the maternity photo shoot they knew exactly where they wanted it to be; Big Ivy Pisgah National Forrest. It was a magical place that they felt a strong connection to. So Big Ivy we went!
The mossy rocks and cascading river creating little mini falls and pools, and the beautiful trees created a sunlit canopy with shafts of light breaking through. In fact when we got there, one beam was lighting up a large rock right in the middle of the river. I urged them to jump in quickly so we could grab a few shots while the beam was still present. We started shooting, and about 15 photos in, the beam disappeared behind the mountain in the distance, and all that was left was the memory of it’s beauty. Thanks beam of light, for visiting us even for that one,short moment.
It wasn’t a challenge to get Avyanna and Phoenix to cuddle and love each other. It was such a beautiful day and such a precious moment. Just swimming in a sea of endless love for each other. And for an unexpected funny moment, I had climbed up on a rock and had a little fight with a small bush trying to get into just the right position. After getting some amazing pics of them they looked up and started laughing. Avyanna said she had to take a picture of me with my phone so I could see for myself. See for yourself how the foliage and I had a little cuddle moment, LOL. Whatever has to be done to get the photo, right?
Here’s to the future day when you bring little Blueberry there to frolic in the river and experience the joy with all three of you.
