{Maternity}Kasie & Ryan | Burlington Lifestyle Photographer

There is a first time for everything. Sunday we combined a lot of firsts together:

  • Kasie & Ryan's first child
  • My & Sarah's first maternity session
  • Sarah's first session with her brand new lens
  • Our first session with the cameo appearance of a McDonald's cup

It was great. Truly it was. If you saw Sarah's post from yesterday, we were fortunate, once again, to work with great clients. Kasie is breathtaking, almost 8 months pregnant and glowing like a mommy should be. And Ryan is a hoot. As in kept us hooting & hollering (yes, I really did just say that!). He was a great sport and I couldn't help but appreciate how in love they are. With the birth of Logan only a month away, we are so excited to have this opportunity to photograph his wonderful Mommy & Daddy.

Congratulations! (again!!)

Here are my favorites. Sarah took the lead for this session, doing most of the directing. I stayed in the background and worked hard to capture different angles as she set up Kasie & Ryan.

I think this is probably my favorite photo of them! Isn't she just gorgeous!

For their engagement session, they lied on the grass and looked at each other much like the photos on the left & right. So I'm hoping we recreated that moment all these years later!

I love the next three! We just told them to cuddle and the cuteness just overflowed! They were all kissy and giggly and it was just so adorable!

We picked Beth Schmidt Park in Elon to do photos because of the adorable playground. There were a lot of kids and it was HOT but I still got a few shots of them on the slide and bridge. Doesn't it just make you warm and fuzzy inside?!...maybe that's just me...!

And this is, by far, my FAVORITE shot of Kasie. I peeked through a little arch way to get it but I think she is framed beautifully and is just radiant!

I know I sounded all mushy while writing this, but it was that kind of session! Romantic & sweet and lovable - the way it should be.
