Gosh I have a good looking family.
Garrett and Alisha entrusted me with their engagement photos–my very first real shoot, and now they’re expecting a little girl. Of course she’s already betrothed as Vienna’s best friend for life, and we’re all dying to meet her.
These two make my job easy. Like I would look up and be about to say something and they’d already be doing it easy.
One time in the future Alisha is going to teach a class on how to weeerk the camera. Cause she’s got it. She laughs and blames it on high school vanity, but I don’t believe it. We all went through that stage and didn’t come out with these kind a skillz.
I feel so tenderly about these photos, because it seems simultaneously yesterday and a whole lifetime ago that I was in her shoes, waiting. Growing, stretching, expanding–in all ways–finding all kinds of aches and strange sensations my body never felt before. And a little thing is rolling around in your belly, punching your ribs and forcing you to down whole containers of Tums. You feel uncertain and swollen and scared and thrilled and ecstatic but calm, warrior-womanly. Everyone’s like, “it’s such a beautiful time!” and you’re like, “I just feel like a whale.” But it really is beautiful, the things your woman body can do.
It seems like one of those times you can’t fully experience the beauty of until it’s in hindsight. I hope these photos, Alisha mlove, help you more fully experience your glowing beauty right this second. You are a vision and I am so thrilled your family is growing. You and Garrett will be angels to that little babe.
Expecting a little one and in need of beautiful photographs to remember this time by? I’m your lady. Details for maternity sessions can be found here.
