Kirstie, Stephen and the Bump
I was beyond thrilled when Kirstie contacted me to photograph her maternity session. This was my official 1st full circle couple. I photographed their engagement, their wedding and WAY back in the day-her 1st headshots. They were some of my first ones to take and they were her first to be taken. She believed in my talents then and I remember when she had asked to photograph her wedding, I was stunned. The scent of pizza in the air, our shirts stained with olive oil and a look of fatigue in both of our eyes-we were long time servers at California Pizza kitchen together. We had discussed her engagement photos and how she wanted to travel up north...and how she wanted me to shoot their wedding too. I was flattered, humbled and filled with joy beyond measure. It was my 1st destination wedding, as well as engagement session and it will forever hold such a special place in my heart. Fast forward to just over 2 years later..and here we were in a beautiful trail that had Nor Cal vibes but was just in our backyards. What a stunning mama-to-be...I couldn't get over how gorgeous she looked in green and how her skin glowed. I love how Stephen looked at her and I can only imagine how he'll look at his new, little lady. The love they share was just as full and apparent as it was several years ago and I can't wait to meet Baby M.
