Ashley & Jamie // Maternity

We’d be hard pressed to find something sweeter than friends who trust us with their big life events.   

When we shot Ashley & Jamie’s October wedding on the top of a grassy hill, we had no idea we’d be back to the same location just under two years later to document their next big leap—parenthood.

We started the evening in the nursery, looking at all the love that’s already surrounding Baby B (henceforth all the bees around).  From books with heartfelt messages to the practical pieces, the nursery was such a cozy nook to start our session.   We thought of all the late nights, early mornings, and rocking and reading sessions that will happen so soon in this very room!

Jamie, who is not necessarily a delicate kind of guy, held Ashley so tenderly.  Ashley fit so perfectly in his arms, and their baby fit so perfectly in her embrace.

After some sentimental moments in the nursery, we went outside to where Ashley and Jamie got married just under two years ago.  The hill was ready for us, with soft light peeking through the tall grasses and a soft breeze.  

One of the gifts Ashley & Jamie received at their shower was an illustrated book of Harry Potter (which has played an important part in their relationship—check out the ring box that says “Always” from their wedding day!).  Jamie sat down on the grass and read to Ashley as we relaxed on the summer evening.  We can tell he’s going to be a great bedtime reader—just look at those expressions!

After such a sweet and loving evening, we can’t wait for when Baby B arrives to receive this love!!
