A Plum Island Maternity Portrait Session
When I first started my business, I had no desire to photograph maternity portraits. But as the years went on my couples started to begin growing their families and I realized that I actually LOVED having the opportunity to photograph past DZP couples on their journey to parenthood! And then wouldn't you know I had a baby of my own! I suddenly knew what it felt like to anxiously await the arrival of your baby. I knew the feeling of your baby kicking and wiggling and moving about. I understood the joy a baby brought and I found myself hooked. As a photographer, I'm allowed a unique opportunity to celebrate these wonderful seasons of life with my couples. What a privledge it is to document their engagement, their wedding and the start of their family. (Plus, anniversary celebrations along the way!!) It's one of things that I love MOST about photography and I'm so grateful to be a part of that journey!
Which brings me to Katie and Kevin, who were married in 2013 and are now anxiously awaiting the arrival of their first baby, a BOY! I still remember their wedding like it was yesterday... I can remember Katie's parents BEAMING with pride and can only imagine just how excited both Katie & Kevin's families are at the coming arrival of Baby Shaw!!
I met the lovely couple at Sandy Point, a remote beach at the end of the Parker River Wildlife Refuge in Newburyport. We practically had the beach to ourselves and spent the afternoon wandering the ruggesd shoreline. Being the lover of all things ocean, I was in photographer heaven. Katie radiated with beauty (yes she GLOWED!) and Kevin was just SO proud and protective. Ah, it's adorable!!
Katie & Kevin, thank you so much for inviting to me to document such a momentous time in your family's history!! I cannot wait to see pictures of baby boy, but for now bask in the glow of pregnancy!! Enjoy your images!!
