Happiness is on the way…
And it couldn’t be happening for two better people. You may remember my story of Gretchin & Alex from their winter baby announcement shoot. There are not enough adjectives to convey how sensational I think they are, or how ecstatic I am for them to be parents. You can tell that having a family is something that they were born to do and it’s a wonderful thing that they met each other and fell in love so they could get started on their kismet.
We planned a maternity session for a perfect late spring evening. I had hoped to shoot the session inside Fuller Gardens but for some reason they ended up closing early that afternoon. After taking a quick walk around the street we were on, I decided there was more than enough beauty to work with outside the gardens, no need for us to figure out a new spot!
Just across the street was this amazing tree where the blossoms were more than happy to coordinate with Gretchin’s outfit and help solidify the ‘it’s a girl’ theme! There was great texture in the wall, and even glimpses of the ocean in the background. Green grass, gravel paths, and aromatic lilacs also gave themselves to being part of this wonderful maternity session!
Such a stunning mama-to-be. It’s almost not fair how easy she made pregnancy look.
Alex tried his best to hold emulate a belly. Sorry sir, I’m just not buying it. This little gate area was a magical paradise! And a matching gate across the street that led to the ocean! Seriously? *sigh* the gorgeous is abundant!

And that something has happened, and she is sublime. Just wait til you meet her!
