Every client is special to me. I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to capture life’s priceless moments for all of you on a daily basis. But, Erica + Seth’s maternity session is extra special. Not only are they my clients, but Erica is my cousin and one of my closest friends. I’ve had the privilege of capturing and being present for the biggest moments in their life and getting to preserve this chapter is just as sweet.
From Erica: Sethy and I are beyond excited to welcome our little bundle into our lives! We prayed and prayed for this little man and now that his arrival time is quickly approaching, we are just overjoyed. Some of our favorite memories during this pregnancy journey have actually been just between the two of us. From spending quality time deciding on what exactly we want our boys room to look like, to back rubs and pedicures, we have just had a blast preparing for his arrival. I can already tell you that this little creation who hasn’t even entered our world yet has us completely smitten with him and with each other. Our love just continues to grow every single day and I thank God for blessing us with little Noah because he really has already made such a huge impact on our lives. We talk daily about what he will look like and what features he will have from each of us. Just thinking about the day that he gets put on our chests makes us both well up with tears. We are counting down the days until we get to finally hold our little Noah.
Many couples like to schedule their maternity session at home. However, Erica + Seth choose to do theirs immediately following their baby shower at Elmwood Farm and it could not have turned out better. The lush green grass and rustic buildings were the perfect backdrop to celebrate their bundle of joy and capture this chapter in their story.
Dressed in blue for their little boy, Erica + Seth were beaming with joy the whole day. Noah is their first little love and they are beyond excited to become first time parents. With smiles you couldn’t wipe from their faces, it’s clear these two love each other and Noah more with each day that passes.
From Erica: I just wanted to write another little piece about how much we appreciate you Jamie girl. You have been there for every milestone in my life and I am blessed to have you as my cousin and more importantly, as my friend. We are SO happy that you were able to capture these wonderful memories for us and we cannot wait to see all of the beautiful moments that you continue to capture for us as our world grows. Your attention to detail and desire to make our photos exactly what we have envisioned truly mean the world to us. I will continue to praise you forever and ever because you are not just an excellent photographer, you are a beautiful human being inside and out!
Erica + Seth, I am filled with so much love and happiness for the two of you as you become parents. I am so excited to meet Noah and know that he is incredibly blessed to have a mom and dad as awesome as you. Your life is about to change in the most wonderful way. I can’t wait to see what traits baby Noah will have from you and promise to not let my tears of joy interfere with my camera focus the day of his arrival ❤
