Kesha's Lake Wylie Maternity Session
I met LaKesha earlier in the year...when she was only 12 weeks pregnant. Over the last few months, we've chit-chatted pretty frequently (close to everyday lol) and have actually become pretty good friends, so when we finally met up for her maternity session, I swear it was like hanging out with an old girlfriend. We hugged, laughed and casually cracked jokes the entire shoot. I love that meeting her felt sooooo natural and genuine. She has the sweetest spirit and the best heart. Her little girl is definitely lucky to have her as a mommy.
We were thrown into a bit of a panic as we approached her session. Our original scheduled date had the forecast of severe thunderstorms, so we shifted our timeline and location for the best chance of getting her session done. Luckily for us, everything fell in place - she was able to get her makeup done as planned, we were able to get the gown early and the weather was phenomenal! Not to mention, McDowell Nature Preserve in Steele Creek is always gorgeous this time of year (who am I kidding? I love this place all year round haha).
And WOW....is all I can say. She looked like a complete goddess for these pictures. The session and images couldn't have been more perfect....but don't take my word for it...check out some of my favorites from her session. :)
