Since I will finally be meeting the latest addition to the family tomorrow, it seemed only fitting I finally blogged this wonderful maternity session. I couldn't be happier with how Danielle and Joe's maternity photos turned out. She wanted to do a nice mix of inside their home as well as outside on their property and we got super lucky with amazing spring weather on the day of their session.
I don't meet a ton of high school sweethearts, but these two are probably some of the sweetest. The way Joe would look at Danielle and didn't even complain about photos. They were so laid back and easy to photograph, and I know they are sure to be some seriously amazing parents. I had told Danielle after their session about how I had received some bad news earlier that day and had a seriously tough time getting ready for the session. I honestly wasn't sure if I would be able to focus on photographing them as I was totally distracted by a personal crisis. But having their session on this day completely turned it all around for me. No joke, within a few minutes I completely forgot about everything that was going on and was totally immersed in chatting with them and the photos.
It was a wonderful reminder about why I love what I do. It's the people and the personal connections. It's staying an hour after the session ended to chat about travel and share stories. It's making unlikely friends and being reminded of the amazinginly beauitful larger picture in life.
