One last weekend up at the lake. One more weekend to go for walks and cook on the fire. One more walk down to the lake, one more sunset to watch. The last weekend at the lake is always bittersweet, but but having this lakeside sunset maternity session with some wonderful friends make it so much easier to say so long for the year.
We have never photographed a fall session at our lake lot. We took our time and found new spots that we’ve never used during a shoot. I’ve walked the dirt road, the paths, a million times. First as a child and then with my own kids. It amazes me when we can make it look different and new and special.
Gareth and I don’t do a lot of photo shoots together anymore – just weddings and babies. It’s too hard with the boys and constantly arranging childcare. But with our built in babysitters at the lake (thanks mom and dad!) we were both able to hang out and document this session. Gareth did his thing and jumped in my shots, but I had to include a photo of him demonstrating a pose for them! haha! It’s always such good fun to work together.
We have known Melissa and Curtis for a long time now. They’re the type of people that pop in and out of our lives, and they always seem to fit when they come. They are absolutely wonderful people, and they are going to make the best parents.
Thank you so much for making the drive to the lake, so we could document this amazing time in your life. We are so excited to meet this baby!
