Teresa + Kevin // Maternity Session

My first maternity session!

And I can’t imagine it going any more smoothly. Teresa and Kevin are such an adorable and welcoming couple, I couldn’t help but to think of what wonderful parents they will make…


The more I think about it, the more I realize that I want every one of my photo shoots to be an experience in and of itself. I don’t want it to be all about the photos. I want it to be about something greater. Something real. That’s where the honest moments are found. In the thick of a real experience.

I love that this was a maternity session but was about the two of them. Well. The three of them, truly. It was about Teresa and Kevin’s love for each other and what that love has created. A baby. A life. And about how that baby is going to change their lives.

And that’s a real thing.

Teresa gave birth two days after this photo shoot to a beautiful baby boy.

I went to deliver the photos to her last night and she let me hold him.


One week later and that lump I was photographing is now a baby, out in out in the real world.

It’s amazing what we’re capable of…

      Patsy Bevans - I was visiting the afternoon of the photo shoot. Teresa was a little nervous before he arrived, but Mat soon had her relaxing and being herself. We all laughed a lot, and the photos look fabulous!ReplyCancel
