“These images were taken at the same place my husband and I were married one year ago, Board & Batten. This is such a special place that holds some of our best memories and we wanted to share this place with our little lady to come. Since our pregnancy fell in the height of Covid, we were unable to have a baby shower or see majority of our friends and family. We are so grateful to have these images captured during this special season of life. Memories we will cherish forever. She is the best thing I never knew I needed. Thinking back, motherhood was never really a role I thought would be for me. In my own time and when the right person came into my life there was no hesitation that things shifted and becoming a mother was something I was ready for. I’m so glad I gave myself this opportunity to experience this great love, my life is forever changed because of her.” McKenna, Expectant Mother
“Working with McKenna was so fun! This is her and her husband’s first baby so I loved see the pure joy and anticipation in their faces as I photographed them. I wanted to focus on them as a couple just as much as the baby bump because a family starts with two people, before a baby even enters the world. Another thing I loved about working with McKenna was that she really appreciates photography and the importance of documenting a moment that you don’t want forgotten. Pregnancy is only 9 months and it can fly by. I love that this couple can now look back at these photos and remember how they felt in their last months as a family of two.
What I find most fulfilling about photographing motherhood is that every family is so different but yet each mom exhibits the same tenderness, strength, and resilience. That’s what I like to focus on most, is how amazing and strong mothers are for taking on that full time job. Motherhood is never the same for everyone, and every mother has a different approach and experience with each of her children. But there is always common ground with each mother, and I like to highlight that in each of my photo sessions.” Hillary, Photographer
