Carrie married the love of her life a year ago…and before she put away her wedding gown, she decided to give life to it one more time. And she had even more of an incentive… she is pregnant. At the time this session took place, she was about two months along, and though not necessarily “showing”…she could already feel the difference in the way the dress fit her.
Carrie wanted to do the photos at her parents’ house in North KC. At first, I was a little hesitant because lighting is so key to getting strong portraits, and most houses don’t have lots of available light. But as soon as I stepped into the foyer, I was not concerned in the least.
not to mention… Carrie was so classically beautiful. Her dress, her overall look is so timeless. And she was the sweetest person ever…with a voice like an angel (she can sing, too!!). Her mom was on site and just as nice and ever-so helpful with holding a reflector for a few of these images. And later, even her dad joined the party–sacrificing his dignity to dance a jig or two to get his daughter laughing.
I am so honored to have met this family…and these images are even more special to me because there is a life within Carrie that will someday see these images and know that he or she was there for the making of them. He or she helped give her that glow!!!
Carrie–I wish you and your husband the best as your family grows… Have a wonderful next two trimesters and enjoy motherhood. xo
