I loved getting to meet the Hannant family recently to capture maternity photos for Ashley, as well lifestyle family portraits before they soon become a family of five! It was just over 100 degrees that afternoon so it was HOT but Ashley was such a trooper braving these temps, especially being almost 8 months pregnant! I bow down to you Mama. We did take one car/AC break mid way through which I think helped us all re-energize for the sweet light that followed. And towards the end of the session, they just let the kids play by the waters edge, which coupled with the lighting, allowed for some candid magic moments -- the kind that fill my heart up. I apologize for for such a long post but I had the hardest time narrowing these down. Ashley, thank you for allowing me the honor to capture this special time for you and meet your sweet, loving family!
These two just kill me (inset emoji heart eyes!)
I mean, how sweet is it that her 5 year old son wanted to go out there with Mama and hug her!
