Do you remember Paige and Justin? I’ve taken their pictures before and was thrilled when Paige messaged me for a second shoot, this time highlighting their addition to the family! Paige might be the most beautiful, glowing pregnant woman I have ever laid eyes on. I’m pretty sure Justin agrees. They are so sweet together, which made this portrait session one of my favorites to date.
The session took place in South Carolina at Anne Springs Greenway. I wish I had known about this location when I lived nearby. I feel like I could take photos here dozens of times and still get different, exciting results with each session. We only covered a small portion of the grounds this time so that Paige didn’t have to walk too far. It was a beautiful day!
If you’ve ever done a session with me, you’ll know that I get really excited when I see pretty light. That was this moment.
There were a few log cabins on site and one of them was Billy Graham’s grandfather’s. So incredibly cool, right?
I love it when clients come to shoots with ideas of their own. Paige sent me a few pictures of things she had seen on Pinterest a few days before the shoot, so I copied them onto my phone and had them handy for inspiration. We didn’t copy photos exactly, of course, but the feel of them gave me a good idea of what they wanted their photos to look like. Not every photographer is ok with this method, but I kind of love it! As long as the expectation is not that I copy someone else’s work, it’s a great way to know that you are just as excited for the shoot as I am!
It was her idea to do a few shots barefoot. These next images might be my favorite from the session, but there were so many great ones it’s hard to choose.
Paige and Justin, thank you so much for having me photograph you again during this exciting time in your lives! I am excited to meet your sweet girl, Parker Lyn, and continue capturing beautiful moments of the entire family.
