Maternity Photos: Kim & Blake

I was thrilled when Kim and Blake asked me to do maternity photos for them! They live in Florida, so we met (roughly) in the middle in Fairhope, Alabama, which turned out to be the perfect picturesque location. The weather was unexpectedly cold and windy, but these two did not let that stop them! We had a really fun day documenting the excitement they have in anticipation of their daughter, Stella. Here are a few of my favorites:

Just a Little Shout-Out :)

I'll be sharing some of Kim and Blake's maternity photos with you soon as promised, but first, I want to tell you how much I love the Porters. Mary and Brandon were my first-ever portrait models, and I owe my portrait skills to them. Without their willingness to let me practice, I would not have started out on this journey of learning about portrait work. All I have learned (and will learn, too) can be traced back to this maternity shoot:

And then there was this (much more difficult) newborn session with their precious son, Lawson:

Sadly, the Porters moved far away from us last year, but Alex and I had a wonderful visit with them in their new home a couple of months ago. I couldn't resist capturing their growing family again:

Aren't they adorable?
