Leslie and Shannon's Maternity Session

It's difficult to put into words how much I adore this growing family. Will and I have run rescue with Leslie for 4 years now. In fact, we have all been on the same shift for all of those years! Yes, saying we are going to miss her on those shifts will be an understatement, but luckily I am sure we will get to baby sit with the sweetest baby boy. :) These two have been fun to watch throughout the pregnancy. I would never have needed to see Leslie's baby bump to know they were expecting - just look at their growing smiles! Seeing these two each week was so much fun as their excitement grew and as they passed each milestone. Oh and it might have taken 8 months but I think Leslie is finally used to me talking to and feeling her belly without warning! :) In addition, I have gotten to hear some great parenting advice from Shannon, the to-be dad. Considering, he is using Bill Cosby has is guide to parenting, I think we are all in for a lot more laughs!

If I didn't get lucky enough with such and amazing couple & baby bump, we got to shoot at Mabry Mill in the middle of Fall!! Let me tell you it was a photographers dream. A glowing couple, a glowing sunset, and glowing leaves!! If I haven't said it already (please, I've said it 101 times) I love Fall in Southwest, VA! Enjoy some of our favorites from Leslie and Shannon's maternity session!

This chair was passed down to Shannon. It was the same chair his grandfather used as a child and it has remained in the family ever since...
