Looking Glass Falls Maternity: Jessie + Christian

This maternity session at Looking Glass Falls takes my breath away!  This session means so much more to me than just pretty pictures.  When I first met Jessie and Christian years ago, I knew they were something special.  I’ve had the privilege of capturing their complete wedding journey, anniversary sessions, and the announcement of their first baby.

So when it came time to choose a location for their maternity session, it had to be perfect!  When I brought up the idea of a waterfall to Jessie, she was completely on board!  Of course it took some scouting to find a waterfall that didn’t have a long hike.  When we pulled up to the falls, my photographer heart almost exploded!  Jessie’s shimmery pink dress, and of course her striking beauty, was absolute perfection!  We also took a detour through Forest City for a more sleek backdrop to use with her black dress!  GORGEOUS!

Getting to capture this beautiful time in Jessie and Christian’s lives is such a blessing!  We always have the most fun on our adventures and the biggest adventure is yet to come!  They will be welcoming little Miss Ellie Elaine very soon and I can’t wait to meet her!  Thank you both for inviting me into your lives and allowing me to be a part of your incredible journey!
