Jessica: Maternity

This past weekend Anthony, Riley, and I headed to Wilmington, NC to see some of our best friends and to take some maternity pictures for our friends Jessica and Duane. We had a great time and it made me miss everyone sooooo much. Geeze, I mean…why cant ALL the people I love just come live near me??!! I dont think thats too much to ask. 🙂 Okay…Im selfish…I get it. 🙂

I had all of these super fun ideas for Jessica’s session and couldnt wait to play with some direct sunlight and cool shadows…but low and behold good ole hurricane Bill came and busted up my plans! Sooooo, on to plan B. We shot inside one of my favorite places…Port City Community Church. This place is also super special for Jess and Duane because the new building has been a labor of love 1o years in the making. 🙂 Duane and my bff Jessica Mann are on staff at PC3 so we were able to get inside, take cover from mean ole H.Bill, and shoot some pictures of my fabulously pregnant friend. Good times indeed!

Here are some of my favs…we started in the atrium area…

Their son Miles came along too. 🙂

He’s a little camera shy…

Then we were off to Grow Zone…Anthony and Riley lead the way! (p.s. I cant tell you how much I love my boys! )

Oh….and Miles has been taking gymnastics and its definitely paying off! Look at that flexibility!!!

This to me pretty much sums up life with little kids…(gulp)

On to the cafe…”hot mom check-in! What what!”:)

And finally…when Miles was born we wrote his name on Jess’s belly for her maternity session. This time she wanted that again but got a little help from the fam.

Jess and Duane…we cant wait to meet lil miss Iris!!!! We had the best time with you guys and we miss you a ton already… 🙁 Oh….and we miss you a lot too Jessica Mann and Riley wants you to know he loves his lovey so much!!!
