Jamie + Rob with Baby Kyllian - Revisiting Memories at Fletcher Park

My favorite thing in my profession is that I get to re-visit with people throughout their lives. I get to be there to witness and capture some of their greatest moments. Jamie and Rob worked with me as their wedding photographer back in 2017. And now, two years later, I am photographing their maternity session with baby and family photos to come. It almost feels like I just saw them yesterday! Time passes so quickly.

It’s such a beautiful moment to capture a little one while they’re still with mom, nestled inside and just waiting to spring forth. And it’s super important to schedule maternity sessions early! LOL. It has happened more times than I can count that the maternity session never happened because baby came early. And baby Ky was no exception.

We went back to Fletcher Park where we had done the engagement session. It was fun to revisit those memories and do another river shoot just like their previous one. Unfortunately it wasn’t in the same exact location. It had rained A LOT and the river was so high and fast it would have been impossible. But through exploration we found a little side river that was almost the same, BUT SAFE! One shouldn’t endanger their couples during their maternity session.

Can’t wait to meet baby Kyliian, or baby Ky, at our session next week. I need my baby fix :) Congrats to these amazing parents as they begin their next life journey together.

 
Here’s a look back at our engagement session from 2017.  This specific river spot was full of rushing, brown water from storms, however we lucked out with a side river, and we accomplished our goal!  Who knows, maybe we’ll have to bring baby Ky here too!

Candice and Charlie Maternity Session- The Hunt For Flowers & Ferns

Candice and Charlie are some of my favorite clients and people!  From head shots, to wedding photography, to maternity photo shoots, and soon....baby photography!  I've photographed their lives and watched as it's all progressed.  I feel so honored to have been there for these momentous occasions and captured it for them to relive forever.

Candice knew she wanted flowers and ferns.  Having pre-hiked Pink Beds in Pisgah and seeing field upon field of wild flowers and sunflowers, we planned to go there the following week.  Unfortunately in that time all the flowers got murdered!  Actually mowed down, you could see nothing but empty, mowed fields.  It was odd!  We continued hiking for about an hour finding some ferns and made the best of the natural forest. 

Just so happened that it's sunflower season at Biltmore!  So when I saw these amazing fields during a run I knew we had to do a whole new shoot just for fun.  I just knew she wanted flowers, especially sunflowers for her vision.  And so we got our flowers, finally.

The world is about to be + 2 amazing, caring and super loving parents and +1 lucky baby boy.  I can't wait to meet him.  Congratulations on your amazing next chapter you two!

We finally found a small patch of ferns that was just perfect for this forest mother
