Erin, Joel, and I first met in 2015 when I shot their wedding, and we hit it off immediately. They have dubbed me their photographer for life and have held to it! I shot their first maternity shoot, a family session for their daughter’s first birthday, yearly family sessions after that, and now another maternity session. They are expecting identical twin boys at the start of 2023, and I’m so excited for them!
Since their maternity session was in November, we picked a park with some stunning fall colors and a gorgeous stone building with turquoise windows to set it off. The Cryders picked their outfits to fit the season, with Mom and Dad in solids and Emery in a cute fall pattern. We captured everything on their list- Mom & Emery, Dad & Emery, some solo Emerys, and some shots highlighting Mom’s growing bump!
We lucked out with how warm the day was, but we had to be flexible since it rained during our original scheduled time for photos. I still made sure to take Emery’s best times of day into consideration so that we would get those adorable toddler smiles.
Erin and Joel used these amazing images for Christmas cards, as gifts for the holidays, and are going to replace prints in their home from their original maternity session. Can’t wait to see how they look!
