The dad-to-be in this sessions’ photos, I have known for years. Victor was a new doctor when I first met him. I knew him pre-dating and marrying his now beautiful wife Liz and I was so thrilled when they asked me to photograph their maternity session. They are expecting a little one to arrive before they know it and they wanted to capture how absolutely stunning Liz is.
This is their first child and unfortunately shortly after baby Da Costa’s arrival they will be leaving for Detroit, MI for Victor’s fellowship. I am so sorry to see this family leave because I would love to photographically chronicle the little ones first year but I did get to chronicle Liz’s pregnancy.
We started when there was a positive pregnancy test but no baby bump taking pictures and every 3-4 weeks we have taken pictures of the growing belly. We have one more session in a few weeks and then I will be able to put the finishing touches on Liz’s “pregnancy progression” photograph so keep an eye out for that.
They also wanted a session at Duke Gardens when the spring flowers started to appear and so this is a few of my favorites from their maternity session last week. We got there just when the wisteria was starting to appear on the arbor at the top of the stairs. These two make everything look easy and effortless. They are so in love with each other and with the new little one that they haven’t met yet!
Thanks again guys for allowing me to capture such a beautiful time in your life! I will miss you guys and meeting the little one but a picture is worth a thousand words (or so I try to tell myself when I am shooting) and so I am looking forward to seeing him grow up through pictures and facebook posts!
