Waiting Expectantly | Photography by Samantha Kirk

January 31, 2017

“My husband and I are expecting our first child in June. We feel overjoyed and incredibly blessed for this little life we created together. We wanted to document this special moment in our lives, not only for us to look back on years from now, but to share this journey with our child as he or she grows up. We chose the beautiful rolling hills of Briones Regional Park (outside of San Francisco) for the backdrop of our photos. Our session with Samantha felt so comfortable – like we had known her for years, even though we met for the first time at this shoot. We love her use of film photography and the light and airy quality of her photos.

I will never forget the very first time I saw our baby on the ultrasound and its beating heart. In that moment, I was overcome with so much emotion and the realization of motherhood truly hit me. I feel so privileged and thankful to be a mother. I am in awe every day as I watch my belly grow and I can’t wait until I meet our little one.” Alice, Expectant Mother

“When I first met Alice and Andrew, my goal was to capture their story and make sure they were comfortable in front of the camera as I know most people aren’t, but they were so fun to work with and had no trouble in front of the camera. Being able to capture such a special moment for them meant so much to me. Their love for each other and the excitement they had to start a new family was so contagious.  I love being able to met each couple and learn and know their story. So many moms are excited and I love being able to capture that glow and that joy they have about soon meeting their little one. I love being able to hold moments for them in photographs.” Samantha, Photographer
