Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

Rachel’s Maternity Session at Capitol Park

February 5, 2021

Ohhh this session has my heart!!! This is one of my absolute favorite times of the year with one of my favorite people! This gorgeous maternity session at Capitol Park was for my sweet sister in love, Rachel. She’s carrying my new precious baby niece, River. I am so obsessed with her name they chose! I was drawn to look up the meaning of her name and found this. A river is a place of gathering, of assembling in cheerfulness and prosperity. Psalm 46, below, is prophetic. God has a city with a holy place, His headquarters, we’ll see its name, and this river shall contribute to the spiritual quality of gladness to the welfare of its inhabitants. Psalms 46:44. How amazing is that?!

The Session

This session was so much fun and Rachel couldn’t have looked more stunning! This was the perfect setting to capture this special time. The cherry blossoms at Capitol Park were fully in bloom and EVERYWHERE! I only wish they stuck around longer but maybe that’s why shooting in them is so much more special. Capitol Park is breathtaking this time of year but Rachel was even more beautiful! We had so much fun laughing and hanging out together. This was such a fun afternoon!

Rachel is one of my favorite people. She inspires me in more ways than she knows. She’s so strong and determined. She’s already an incredible mother to her son, Jaymin, and an amazing wife. She works so hard for her family and always puts their needs above everything else. I just adore Rachel and I can’t wait to meet my sweet baby niece!!
