Chris + Laura | Sunrise Maternity Session | Pennsylvania

 I woke up at four-thirty a.m. on March 29th to travel ninety minutes for a sunrise Maternity session. Mother-to-be Laura (a fellow photographer) and I arrived to the location simultaneously, and chatted in her car while waiting for the sun to peak above the horizon. Fifteen minutes later we hopped out of her car and walked until I found my sweet spot. I squealed with delight at the golden glow creeping through the trees - it couldn't be a more perfect morning.

 

I remember the birds tweeting morning chatter, the park landscapers beginning their day, and the smile never left Laura's face. Ten minutes into our session, Laura's Husband arrived, and I was immediately warmed up -- not just from the morning sun, but by the bond Laure and Chris shared. From Chris gently running his fingertips through Laura's hair, to the constant laughter, the session was full of visceral memories that I still connect with while viewing their session...

 

I am humbled when a fellow photographer puts their trust in E. Ashley Photography to capture milestone moments.

Experiences such as that bring everything full circle.

The adoration Chris has for Laura is found in the way he speaks to her, and looks at her in pure joy.

Laura talked to her baby boy throughout the session, making it hard for me to keep blaming my watery eyes on the onions I cut the night before...

Knowing their son will one day see this photograph, is why I do what I do.
