I am usually documenting Families, Babies and Bellies. But every once in a while I get to capture something magical and inspiring, enter Kimmi & Thomas. These two were all sorts of giggles and starry eyes when we met for our Consult/Gown fitting. I love to hear the story of how it all began. Everyone has a story, the one you'll tell your children one day, the first chapter in your book. These two met when they were both working at Chik-fil-A! While their romance may not have blossomed there, it was the start of a beautiful friendship that was destined for more...
This being their very first professional Portrait Session, I was elated to show them all the fun that was in store! Believe me when I say they were total naturals in front of the camera and the electric energy between them is undeniable.

Listening to these lovebirds tell me their story, there were way too many coincidences to deny that these 2 are meant to be. Pleasure House Point was the perfect, romantic spot to capture their love. Kimmi donned a Chicaboo gown and flower crown from the AEC client closet, clearly one of the most versatile garments ever as this works beautifully on a size 2 or an expecting mama!
Once I get my couples to relax we get to play, which is when the real magic happens; the adoring gazes and the giggles (and, sometimes, attempts at choking LOL)!
This classic ring belonged to her parents and now she gets to begin her journey wearing it with the man she adores.
A gorgeous couple with a gorgeous sunset, what more can you ask for?!
Looking onto the adventure ahead, full of joy, love, smiles, tears, new places, new challenges and changes, and they cannot wait to face it all together.
They will be saying their vows to each other in front of the ones they love in July at The Founders Inn, it is bound to be one of the most intimate, beautiful, epic moments of their lives!
This sweet boy was full of personality and spunk, and he only had eyes for mama! I just adore this little sailor outfit, the latest sweet addition to my client closet!
There is something so precious about this stage, as they begin to sit with more strength in their little bodies, they begin to see a whole new world with every inch they rise.
What expressions this baby boy had, he lasted through 3 outfit changes and then he was done!
Gotta love those sweet little feet!!
