Chester County Summer Maternity Session | Lauren + Brian

2018-08-30_0002.jpg

You might recognize Lauren and Brian from their gender reveal session with me earlier this summer! Well, Lauren is almost finished carrying their precious baby boy and before he joins us all, I had the chance to meet up with them for another maternity session! 

Two maternity sessions?! YES. I'm definitely going to blog about all my reasons for this and when I do, I'll edit and link it here. But let me just say, the reasons are plentiful. I'm so, so glad that I got to capture Lauren and Brian again before their baby boy is here. 

They told me all about how they chose his name (AND IM OBSESSED), Lauren openly shared with me how she's been feeling physically and mentally and Brian was just so excited to take on the role of dad. He is killin' it with the dad jokes and puns already. 

Enjoy some of my favorites from their 34 week maternity session at Cheslen Preserve. 

Of course, these two have an incredible sense of humor (and Lauren has a crazy infectious laugh) so we had to do some silly shots too! 

I can't wait to meet Baby Boy B so soon! 


Melissa + Zach | MARRIED {throwback blog}

West Chester, Pennsylvania vintage backyard summer wedding 

I thought it was appropriate to round out the throwback blogs week with Melissa and Zach. Of all of my couples, these two take the cake for the most relaxed and funny! There was not an ounce of nerves from either one of them throughout the day. I remember feeling like, these two love each other so deeply. We had a blast all day long! I already felt a deep connection to these two but I am so honored to have been able to celebrate and capture this day with them. Melissa is a cancer survivor and a speech-language pathologist working with young children with complex medical histories, developmental delays, multiple disabilities and many other health challenges. Zach is in his final year of seminary. They both are passionate about helping others, giving back and fostering love and inclusion in their community. Did you just get chills? Yeah. I totally heart these two. Their ceremony was perfectly meaningful and their reception was amazing! I mean, come on. They had a food truck that provides locally sourced food and then gives back to their community. There were local cheeses at cocktail hour and dessert included donuts! Can you tell I love food? This wedding truly felt like a big thank you to their friends and family.
