Micah and Melissa will be welcoming their baby girl in the next day or two so I decided I better get a blog post of their maternity session up now! Micah is one of my oldest friends; we have known each other since we were babies. His mom and my mom went to college together and our families used to go camping together every summer. Melissa and I quickly became friends after they moved to Lynchburg. It was so fun to do their maternity pictures and I am so excited to see them grow as they transition into this next chapter of life.
Karren was giving birth at a hospital about an hour and a half away from Lynchburg, so I left early in the morning that she was to be induced. She had contacted me earlier in the week and she was already dilated to 5cm so I didn't want to be too far away once the induction started in case things moved quickly. I ate breakfast and headed over to the hospital around 10AM and they started the induction soon after. Her contractions built up gradually throughout the morning and she worked through each contraction intentionally and beautifully. Lief was born on May 22 at 6:10PM and was a healthy 9lbs and 14oz!
This sweet boy's parents initially hired me to do a newborn session at the hospital but after a short stay in the NICU they decided to wait and do a session once they were settled in at home. I'm actually glad we waited because his nursery is adorable and was the perfect setting for this session!
Brandon and Mylina are long time friends of Drew and I and we are so excited that they will be having a baby girl soon! When they were in Lynchburg a few weeks ago, we took a trip to the Anne Spencer Garden to snap a few photos and capture this special time in their lives before baby girl is born!
A couple of months ago I got to take pictures of this sweet couple. Baby Colton made his entrance to the world a few weeks early, but he is healthy and strong and couldn't be sweeter!
