I knew from the start of our session that I was going to get along with Ian & Erica JUST fine. They are such a down to earth and fun couple, and I was so happy to photograph this maternity session for them. They had a request that they bring along their dog, Elvis, which I of course said, “Yes!”. If it makes you more comfortable, especially if they are part of the family, I always encourage it. Elvis was more than a pet, he was definitely family to Erica. She started telling me that these were probably the last photos that they would get of him because it would most likely be the last Christmas (these were taken in early December) he would have. He was the sweetest dog and was so close to Ian & Erica. He definitely deserved to be a part of these photos 🙂
Onward! We went to Glendale Shoals for their maternity session. It was nice that day and the falls felt perfect. I wanted to get as much as I could without wearing Erica out too much. Keeping the pregnant lady happy is the most important, always, lol.
These are my favorites (which I had to narrow down, lol) from Ian & Erica’s (and Elvis!) maternity session 🙂
I’ve also been thankful enough to photograph The Courson Family once their beautiful boy, Rivers, was born in January. Unfortunately, Elvis passed away this April, and we will definitely miss his sweet face. I’ll be sharing their lifestyle shoot very soon and you’ll get to see sweet baby Rivers 🙂
