it is crazy how connections work. chelsea & john went to Liberty University the same time as i did. i saw them around campus when they were dating, we had mutual friends so i remember hearing about their wedding. chelsea & i knew of each other mostly from people getting us confused. (our names, we both have super strong jaw lines and we are obsessed with knitting). facebook started to suggest other users to me and she popped up so i added her not to long ago. before i know it we were planning on actually meeting to do her maternity shoot. while we were shooting yesterday i had wished that we were friends in college!
i am so excited about these images. dreamy, romantic and joyful! i feel like a lot of maternity portraits can be so cliche. but i think this season in life for couples is just as romantic as an engagement season. creating a family together is such a beautiful thing to me! i am excited to see their relationship to continue to blossom & grow as they start this new journey as a family.
