Whitney, Chris & Lila – I don’t even know where to begin with y’all!!! I am so thankful to be able to return time after time to this meaning-filled, sun-drenched field with you to document your sweet family!! You three are just too much fun to work with, and the most genuinely kind people.
Y’all I swear half of Nacogdoches could probably hear me squeal when Whitney messaged me to ask to set up a maternity shoot before I moved to Houston. Knowing this family was expecting another miracle baby, and knowing I got to be the one to photograph them just about made my heart burst! And as you can tell by the amount of photos in this post, the session did not disappoint! I have waaaay to many favorites from this one!
This one just makes me melt! I love seeing big tough guys so in love with their little girls!
And how sweet is Lila’s little dress??? And those manicured toes? Too much!
Whitney, I’m pretty sure I’ve said it before, but you were just born to be a mama. Lila & your son are so incredibly blessed to have you!!
GAH!!! This one is definitely a favorite!!
I don’t think Lila could get any cuter!
Be still my heart!
Whitney, you are gorgeous, friend!!!
LOVE these next two!!!
Pregnancy is such an incredible miracle, and knowing what Whitney & Chris went through to fight for their little ones makes this miracle even more amazing. Whitney and I both got teary-eyed at one point thinking about what a blessing this baby is, and I don’t know that I’ll ever forget that moment!
This right here is pretty much the definition of glowing. Whitney, even in the crazy heat you make pregnancy look GOOD!!
Another favorite!!! And definitely worth getting close and snuggly even though it was 1,000 degrees outside! Chris, thanks for bearing with me on this one!
We may have had a few tears during the course of the shoot, but the overwhelming feeling was joy and there was sooo much laughter! Love that about these two!!
Whitney & Chris, I am so excited for y’all, and I can’t ever say thank you enough for letting me be a small part of this story. You have a beautiful family, and I will be praying for you & little man! Can’t wait to meet him!!
