Mitchell and I met Alex and Bryan at one of my most favorite locations of all time in Locust, NC! Alex had one request and that was for the field to have some shade because she didn’t want to get too hot! After all, she was 8 months pregnant! In the middle of August it’s hard to fight the heat, but Alex and Bryan were both troopers. We’ve known this adorable couple for quite some time. Mitchell and Bryan used to work together in Texas and that’s how I was able to meet sweet Alex! We witnessed their beautiful marriage and now we’ve captured special moments of them expecting their first baby! I seriously love seeing friends grow in their marriage and the blessings that flow from that like having a baby. I especially love being able to capture it through my camera and save these moments for a lifetime.
If you read my blogs often you know I always brag on how beautiful my clients are. Well, I’m going to do that, yet again! Alex and Bryan were so easy to photograph. Not only were they super models in another life 😉 but they are so sweet, kind and genuine. There is something unique, yet emotional, about a maternity session for a couple expecting their first baby. I personally can’t imagine since I haven’t experienced this, but I am blessed to witness it often. Maternity sessions are typically scheduled when the mom to be is about 7-8 months pregnant so the baby will be arriving soon! The parents are so excited and some will admit even a little nervous. It’s an intimate time in the parents lives. The last few months of just the two of them. The family is excited, they are excited, everything is coming together, the nursery is ready… and so on. It’s the last few months before their whole world changes and they are blessed with the presence of their first born. And you know what I’ve discovered? I just LOVE it! I love everything about it. A few tears of joy usually fall from the mom to be (and even the Dad at times:)) and the session is just purely authentic and intimate. Alex and Bryan were a joy to photograph and I’m so thankful they choose Mitchell and I to capture this beautiful season in their lives. Bryan has now perfected the “nuzzle” and I’m pretty sure if the lawyer thing doesn’t work out – him and Alex can pack up and move to LA for a modeling career!
We can not wait to meet baby H! The Corbetts will be great parents and baby H is already blessed beyond measure!!
We love you two sweet things!
