This soon to be mama of two has been a person I have heard wonderful things about over the years because she is a dear friend of my sister-in-law. It was so great to finally meet her and her adorable family. Our session together turned out to be a "session of firsts" for me, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results. This was my first attempt at maternity photos and also ended up being my first shoot in the rain! We met at Peters Lake Park, hoping to squeeze our session in before the rain, but mother nature had other plans. It began to downpour on my way there, and we were pretty close to calling the whole thing off. But, I know what it's like to be eight months pregnant just wanting to get things done, and I have to give props to this Mama! Most people who just had their hair and makeup done wouldn't be so willing to "play in the rain". But as luck would have it the down pour slowed to a light drizzle and we just rolled with it! Resulting were these gorgeous images that almost have a mysterious look to them. My camera did an amazing job capturing that mist in the air, and the vibrant colors from the rain soaked trees and grass.
Meet the Whaley family...
Special thanks to my sister-in-law Nicci for all your assistance and especially for having this amazing umbrella with you that fit in SO PERFECTLY!
Thank you so much to this soon-to-be family of four! Next time you're ready to play in the rain, you know who to call!
