{joe & louisa...}

About a month ago I got to spend the loveliest of evenings with Joe and Louisa, a couple that I know from church, to take their maternity pictures. After having to delay our photo shoot once, we managed to find some time between the rain drops one Monday evening and relish in the excitement of their much anticipated addition to the family.

Joe and Louisa were the first couple that I’ve photographed as “newbies”…my endearing term for those expecting their first child! Doing maternity pictures is always a lot of fun but this was even more fun because both parents just seem to radiate this excitement that can only be seen in those waiting to be parents for the very first time. I had the most amazing evening just listening to them talk about their experience of preparing for this new time in their life and about the type of person that they hope to bring into this world. It’s very sweet being able to watch two people go through this transition together…even if it is only for a couple of hours!!

Seriously...how cute are these two?!?!

Too adorable for words!!

And on this note, I can’t think of a better way to finish off this post than to announce that Joe and Louisa’s daughter made her first appearance into the world yesterday! Baby Bethany has finally arrived weighing in at 6 pounds and 15 ounces…!

Congratulations Joe and Louisa and welcome to the world Little Lady!
