One of the best parts of being a wedding and portrait photographer is that the relationship you start with a young couple as they build their life together often doesn't end with the grand exit at their reception.
The milestones you are tasked with capturing and documenting span every important facet of the most important relationships in your client's lives and you get to witness those events and the growth that accompanies it from a unique and privileged perspective.
Last year I was blessed to be able to take part in capturing Sadie and Colton's wedding, to document their love and devotion to each other. I still get teary eyed thinking of their vows, and I was ecstatic when Sadie told me the news that they were expecting!
She asked about setting up a maternity shoot and I jumped at the chance to work with them again, and when they showed up they had that same intensity of love that they showed each other on their wedding day.
After we had been shooting for a while I asked them what their birth plan was in case her water broke right then and there and Colton's response was what you would expect from a man who is as in love with and dedicated to his wife as he is: "I'm taking her straight to the hospital and you better not be in the way!"
I look forward to capturing all the best moments of their lives for years to come.
