Carkeek Park Maternity Session

Lara & Keith are friends of mine who I met through an old co worker. I have had the honor of photographing her family and eventually becoming friends! When Lara emailed me to set up a maternity shoot, I was so excited! Maternity is absolutely one of my favorite things to do. 

The shoot was set up a few months prior in January. The day we met for coffee, it was nice outside. I was filled with optimism. Could this be a sign? Will it be nice the day of their shoot? 

Naturally in our area during early spring, you can't predict the weather. However, when arriving to the park and scouting, it turned out to be so beautiful, warm & sunny! Which was quite a shock (NOT a bad thing, in this case) during one of the rainiest winters I have ever experienced as a PNW Native. We lucked out, THANKS MOTHER NATURE! 
Sunshine, warmth and a lot of laughter. Its hard not to giggle around these two. 

I can't wait to meet this little guy! (Yes, it's a boy)
