Emily & John’s Maternity Session

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Emily and John as they prepare for the arrival of their sweet little one due in January! We had an absolutely gorgeous afternoon wandering around the Japanese and Italian gardens of Maymont Park.

It’s hard to pick a “bad” location to photograph in Maymont. With its gorgeous flowing waterfall, stunning bridges, columns and various architectural elements, rolling hills, and changing leaves – you really can’t go wrong. That said, when you wander around Maymont with John (who used to location scout for films) it is IMPOSSIBLE to go wrong! I loved how I went into the session with a plan in mind of the best locations to use and every time I turned around he would be 2 steps ahead of me, seeking out the best possible light – talk about a phenomenal assistant!

Emily and John, I had a wonderful time hanging out with you both and capturing these sweet moments for you. I can’t wait to spend even more time with you in the new year, photographing Baby B.’s newborn session when he arrives!

Just kidding, she always avoids dairy; stupid lactose :-p
