Quick preview from the fun session I did today with the Z family. You might remember baby Kinsley from some sweet 6 month old photos I did with her this past spring… now she’s got a sibling on the way! Thankful for a business that keeps me in touch with great people like this family!

::M+S expecting::

Last weekend we traveled up to Massachusetts to do some family visits and an exciting maternity shoot for Matt and Samantha. They’re coming up on their third wedding anniversary and are due to have a baby boy at the end of June! The week that we planned on coming up to MA, Matt and Sam actually closed on their first house! They’ve purchased a classic house built in 1907 (if I am remembering correctly) which they are currently touching up, repainting, and transforming.  I know they’ll make an amazing home for themselves and their new little one on the way.

We started with some shots in a park just a block or two from their house.

It only took Matt a few minutes to warm up to the camera and relax a bit : )

Another gorgeous park and lake were just a few minutes from their house so we took the opportunity to visit two locations for this shoot.

I’m glad they didn’t mind treading the water for the two shots above!

This pose is so classic and sweet. Oh and did I mention I never had to tell them to smile? They were constantly making one another laugh.

Although they are keeping the baby name a secret, I got  permission to share this shot of what the initials will be!

To close the shoot Sam and I headed to a nearby forest for some more personal pieces of her and her baby belly.

I know what all of you women are thinking- ‘I hope I look this good when I’m pregnant’.  Believe me, Sam really is this gorgeous.

Thanks so much Matt and Sam for having me capture this important stage in your lives! Best of luck finishing up the house and we’ll see you and BTH in July for some more pictures!

We had a beautiful weekend in MA and I’m excited to show you all the maternity pictures from my shoot with Matt and Samantha.

I’ve got a busy week ahead of me with lots of photog gigs including another family shoot as well as working for the Travel Channel for the next few days in Buffalo, NY! They’ve hired me as their ‘on-set’ photographer for a small film production. I’m hoping this opportunity provides some good experience and allows me to make some connections in the professional media world.

I’ll keep all of you updated on how those things go and will post the rest of the pictures from this weekend in a couple of days but I wanted to leave you with at least one image.

I also wanted to mention how thankful I am for the support I’ve received from those of you who read my blog and follow my photography aspirations.  I’m excited to see what’s to come and am looking forward to pursuing this passion.

Although the summer already looks to be a busy one and I’ve got some great photog events to look forward to, keep contacting me about pricing or shoot options.

::Ambler family::

When we first decided to move out to Statesboro, we were a little hesitant about the details it would involve.  We still didn’t know anyone well enough to ask to borrow a truck, or help lift heavy furniture, or help move boxes.  One day at work, John casually mentioned that we were moving the following weekend and one of his co-workers, Robby, immediately asked if he could help.  He said he would have a team of guys at our doorstep with a truck and trailer at 9am Saturday morning.  It sounded too good to be true, but that’s really what he did.  Robby and 4 guys John and I had never met loaded and unloaded all of our things- we practically stood and watched them work.

Not only was I happy to invite Robby over for dinner the week after we got settled in to Statesboro to make sure I thanked him for helping us move, I also really wanted to meet his wife, Chrissy.  Chrissy and Robby both graduated from GSU (the school John is currently attending) and live in Statesboro with their son, Alden, and baby-on-the-way, Molly.  We’ve gotten to know the Ambler’s and a few days ago Chrissy, Alden and I drove out to Brooklet, GA and did a short photo shoot.  Although Robby wasn’t able to make it, we’re planning on a full family photo shoot once baby Molly arrives!

Alden posed pretty well for this shot.

But most of the time he wanted to run and play 🙂

Snacks are a must with two year olds… Alden was really impressed with my camera and kept trying to see himself in the lens which made for a fun candid shot.

How gorgeous is this woman?

I’m sure Molly will be just as beautiful and I can’t wait to do a newborn shoot with her when she arrives!

My favorite shot from the day is below.
