I recently spent a weekend morning with Kristine and Charles at the home of his aunt and uncle, Marilyn and John Connelly, in Belleair. It was truly a gorgeous home: full of light and beautiful spaces, filled with years of memories and special touches. It was absolutely perfect for our session! I've said it before, and I'll say it again: you just can't create custom photographs like these in a studio. I will forever travel to clients' homes for their sessions because it means I have the opportunity to give them something even more exclusive and genuine... something that is theirs alone. A custom photograph created in a private home cannot be recreated in duplicate for just anyone else. These authentic, honest photographs will truly tell a story with their surroundings, the environment, the family history that lies within the walls. Thank you, Marilyn and John, for opening your home to us for this session.
Kristine is expecting their first child, who will be born later this month, and I was blessed to be the one to document this amazing ~ and short-lived, in the grand scheme of things ~ time in their lives. What a beautiful, welcoming family. I couldn't have asked for a more amazing session!
I wish I'd looked this fabulous when I was carrying my own babies. At the time of our session, Kristine was actually 36 weeks pregnant. 36 weeks glowing. 36 weeks radiant as can be. And might I add, Charles could have been a bit on the radiant side as well, judging from the way he looked at his bride.
