Last weekend I had the enormous pleasure to photograph Ryan and Becca’s maternity session on Bunche Beach. This shoot is one that I(and anyone who really knows Becca) has been waiting and hoping for, well, for a few years now.
You see, Becca is one of those people that is always there for others. She is thoughtful and is a perfect babysitter (just ask my children)! While I have known Becca for well over 10 years now, into our adulthood, I have seen her want nothing more then to be a mother. She has graciously and lovingly helped be support for friends and family that are lucky enough to be moms, but all the while we knew she wanted her own. Between almost getting babies to foster, to possibly having one on her own, this was always part of her plan. Her family and friends have been part of this journey, and each time another almost-HER-baby fell through, we all just couldn’t understand why. Enter Ryan. They fell in love quickly and are now expecting this precious little miracle baby that we all have been hoping for. This is clear proof that you must be patient and not loose faith that everything will work out.
Seeing the two of them, and her perfect little belly truly makes my heart happy! I am so ready to meet baby Parker, and I know Becca and Ryan are too. Here are a few favorites of their beautiful shoot. Enjoy!

We also spent some time photographing Becca and her twin sister, Rachel. Twin sisters, baby cousins, and flower crowns; what more could you ask for? You both are so beautiful!
This has absolutely been a week of a lot of throw-backs! Two clients that I photographed happened to be ones that I not only had the pleasure of photography their weddings, but I have also gotten to photograph their children and growing families! Taylor was first in front of my lens in 2012, at 2 years old. And now he is going to be a big brother! My, how time flies! I love that my clients have become friends, and that I am able to share a small part in their journey. Follow on Instagram @elsiejphoto
