When #stephparkercouples become parents
Two days ago, these guys welcomed their baby boy into the world. Baby Liam is already so loved! I was so excited when Jenn reached out a few months ago to ask if I would photograph their maternity session and I especially love seeing my couples living and enjoying life. It warms my heart seeing them become parents and sharing their love and creating a family. It’s an honor to be asked to document these moments!
About a month ago, I met up with Jenn & Keone at Sharon Woods Metro Park to photograph their maternity session and typical of any summer in Ohio, I was concerned about rain. For most of the day, Jenn and I text back and forth giving each other updates on the weather. I even checked the weather app right before I left, and it looked like we were in the all clear. Well, I got to the park and met up with Keone & Jenn and it immediately started pouring! Like, the kind of torrential downpour you only see in the summer. So we camped out in one of the shelter houses and waited to see if it’d let up. It was during this time that I got to catch up with them and learned more exciting news – they’d just found a house and were days away from closing on it! They just recently moved into the house – just in time for baby.
Also, typical of Ohio, the rain let up pretty quickly and we were able to proceed with their shoot and you guys. The light was AMAZING! I’d been waiting to photograph a session with this kind of light all summer and I finally got to and I’m so glad it was with these guys! We had a blast during their session, as we always do, and I’m so excited to finally share my favorite images with you today!
Make sure to congratulate these two on becoming parents! I know they’ll do a great job raising Liam and I cannot wait to meet him!
