Vanessa and Jeff began their relationship in this exact location 8 years ago, so it only made sense for them to return to this beach to celebrate the life of baby Olivia, as well as becoming a family of 3. The sun played hide and seek for the entirety of our session, as if it were teasing the anticipation and nerves these two soon-to-be parents were feeling.
It always feels like such a privilege to be able to share feelings of, and document the excitement & vulnerability of those that are expecting. Nonetheless, my approach to documenting motherhood sessions is an intricate one: I want to make sure you are seen for how you’re approaching and living up this sweet, fleeting moment of time. What an honor it is to be entrusted with these stories – archiving memoirs in visuals as people lean in towards every emotion they feel, relishing the joys and all the goodness to come, is something I don’t ever take for granted. We wrapped up the session with a promise of a future family session when baby O arrives – so excited to meet her and be reunited with these sweet lovebirds!
