Summer Maternity session at Hickory Creek

Stephanie + Mark + Rhett + Baby Girl to be!

I love meeting up with this adorable family.  This past Spring, we took photos for Rhett’s birthday and this time around, we are celebrating the fact that Rhett is going to be a big brother!

I bet you wouldn’t believe it was REALLY hot and VERY humid outside during these pictures.  This family is amazing for working in that heat!  No joke, within seconds of being outside, my camera fogged up and I was already sweating like crazy.  Mark, I still can’t believe you smiled in long sleeves! You are a trooper!  We were desperate to find any breeze whatsoever, and thankfully, the walking path at Hickory Creek was shaded.  The positive side?  The afternoon summer glow through the trees was beautiful to photograph. I loved all the colors! 😉

Picking Hickory Creek for their session was nostalgic as we had been there for their first shoot way back when they first got engaged.  It was so cool coming full circle now with the 2nd baby on the way.

I’m so excited to see Rhett as an older brother to his baby sister.  He is always so much fun to photograph.  I always get the sense from him that he just ‘gets it‘.  He has such maturity in his eyes and when he laughs and smiles, my heart completely melts.  I can only imagine how adorable a little girl made from this sweet family will be.  We were able to get so many cute shots of these three playing together and Steph stayed the longest in the heat and ROCKED some solo shots in the end.

Love this family and this session!

Everyone is hot and sweaty, but who cares when you have those colors and that light! 😉


Who would have thought we’d back in this same spot from your engagement session to baby #2?!

Love these silly ones together. <3

The boys went home to get some air conditioning and mom stayed for some solo shots, just baby girl to be and her. <3


AND THIS SKY!!! <3 <3 <3

Steph, you are amazing and your family is beyond beautiful.

I cannot WAIT to meet baby girl and see you as a family of 4!

Thank you for allowing me to capture so many milestones thus far.

Until next time,
