I met Leigh and Kelly last year when I photographed their beautiful and intimate wedding (featured on Southern Weddings!) When I got the call that she was expecting and wanted me to do her maternity portraits and newborn photos, I couldn’t have been happier. Other photographers will agree, we don’t just take pictures, we are allowed into people’s private moments, to share and document some of the most special times in their lives. It is such an honor. And even more so when you’re invited back to follow in their journey.
Baby Ginger Grace, or Gigi, arrived on her mother’s birthday and here are some faves from our time together. I love capturing images in people’s homes, showing their environment. Gigi has a beautiful vintage-inspired nursery and you know how much I’m sucker for vintage/antiques! Leigh and Kelly, thank you for choosing me again. I so appreciate your loyalty and friendship! Gigi is simply….beautiful!
I wanted to do something vintagey – knowing Leigh appreciates that. And I was dying to use this flower hat!
Oh so sweet details…
Leigh was super creative with this antique piece she found, making into a dresser/changing table! And love the letters on the wall above crib!
The guest bed holds a beautiful quilt Gigi’s grandmother made her. I wanted to capture her on it…
On the outside of the Gigi’s door are the sweetest homemade pieces of art you ever did see. Her big brothers made these cards. And completely melted my heart! The last image is Leigh’s framed birth announcement which sits on the antique dresser. I love that she and her daughter share a birthday and that Leigh’s mom saved this!
