Meet the Bump | Ashley D. | Maternity | Sumter, SC | 2019

Maternity sessions will always be one of my favorite things to photograph. The new beginnings of a fun journey I have already been blessed to experience. It’s such an exciting topic to talk with mom and dad to be about. Hearing about the things they are looking forward to, if they feel prepared, who will be waking up at 2am to change the diaper and all the other fun stuff that comes along bringing home a newborn.

Ashley and Brian’s maternity session took place at the Sumter County Museum, a place the two are very much familiar with since it is also the place where they shared their vows. We saw it only fitting to photograph another huge event in their life at this special location. I love when I am able to incorporate sentimental things within sessions, and location is huge, especially since it can bring back a flood of memories.

Ashley and Brian are going to be such fun parents to baby Levi. They made their session full of laughs and jokes. Brian had Ashley in stitches a good bit and it’s always nice to see a new father having a good time and letting loose. These two were such naturals and I can tell that they are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their precious baby boy who is already loved so much.
