Becky and Chet | Maternity Session | Carversville, PA
Becky has an energy about her that warms you from your head to your toes, and Chet's smile makes you want to smile. When Becky and Chet decided they wanted me to be a part of their incredible journey from pregnancy to parenthood, I jigged in delight as I responded to the inquiry. As the weeks went by I checked in to see how Becky was feeling. I learned more about the couple's history as she told me about the day she met Chet. During one of her bartending shifts at a bar in Doylestown, she looked up, saw Chet, and instantly had that 'Oh man, that's my future Husband' moment. She was right, of course. They were engaged in February 2016, married September of the same year, and several months later were pregnant with their first child.
That leads us to the sunrise maternity session you will soon be viewing below.
On a -let's be honest- quite perfect morning in August 2017, I left my Philadelphia home at 4:30am (fresh coffee in hand thanks to my Husband!) and headed to Carversville, PA. After a fifty five minute commute that included me squealing to myself about the beautiful sky turning from black to a beautiful indigo, I parked outside of Becky and Chet's home. I notified them of my arrival, sipped my coffee, formatted an SD card, and listened to NPR. I soon heard my name spoken by Chet's deeply warm voice, gathered my gear, and headed over to hug the beaming couple.
We then spent two hours basking in one of the most beautifully lit sessions I've ever photographed. We were surrounded by the gentle hum of bugs, birds, and cars going by as Becky and Chet showed me around their special world.
