Maternity Session | Berks County, PA | Brittany & Chris

In 2008 we photographed this beautiful couples wedding and ever since they have been wanting their own child. You may have seen the video we shared featuring their story, if not, watch it HERE. With high hopes they wanted to be the best parents that they could ever be. But as time went on doctors told them that having a baby wasn’t possible. So they told themselves they were going to be the best Aunt and Uncle to their nieces and nephews. Just about a year ago came a wonderful surprise. Brittany was pregnant with a baby girl! They were so beyond happy and excited for this moment in their life. As our photographer, Jennifer, sat down and talked with them after the shoot, she was so impressed by the couple’s courage and perspective. When asked about whether she would like her stretch marks edited out, Brittany said they don’t bother her because they are a mark of something that she thought would never happen. We here at Life Story are so fortunate to be able to share this loving moment with this family and capture its beauty forever.

Outdoor pregnancy session in Berks County | Clint + Jenny

Clint and Jenny are expecting! They wore the cowboy boots you will see in this session when they were married in 2014, and now they wore them again when so soon the 2 are about to become 3. I am seeing some tiny cowgirl boots in the near future 🙂 These two were up for an adventure. Even though it was a bit muddy from early June rainfalls, they put on their boots and hiked around our studio property for these scenic maternity pictures. They are such a down to earth, cute couple. We can’t wait to meet their little one when she arrives!

Maternity Session | Outside the Studio

What a beautiful day for an outdoor maternity session! Haley & Ric love the outdoors, and the day they chose for their session turned out to have perfect weather. Haley enjoyed some pampering ahead of her session in our studio’s dressing room where the talented Dana Hertzog styled her hair and makeup, and then we headed outside for their session on the property surrounding the studio. Then we headed outdoors to capture her cute bump and the sweet props they brought along. Looking forward to having them back later this summer when their little one arrives!

Brittany & Chris share a beautiful story | Maternity Shoot Video

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

To all women. To moms, to daughters, to those who yearn to be a mom, to those who just became a mom, we want to share this story with you. It is a story of strength, courage, blessing and faithfulness; and it is a story of hope fulfilled. We were so happy to share in Brittany and Chris’ joy and celebration over the blessing of this new life. Congratulations to this family and thank you for sharing your story!

“Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were here an hour I would die for you. This is the miracle of Mother’s Love.” – Maureen Hawkins

Maternity Session | Baby Boy on the Way!

We are so happy to announce that Caitlyn and Joel are expecting a baby boy! It won’t be long until they get to meet their little one. They are so excited – this is their first baby and we couldn’t be happier for them. Don’t miss the baseball themed photos!

We started their session at our studio property, and then drove around the corner to a neighbors house to take some photos in their driveway – because we couldn’t resist the lines of flowering white trees at their peak! Caity looked so elegant amid the flowers wearing one of the flowing gowns we picked from our maternity rack.

Congratulations Joel and Caity!

So excited to post these pictures of a very special couple with a little one on the way.  We first got to know Huy and Erika when we photographed their engagement photos, and their wedding, in 2013.  We are so honored that they have chosen us to continue to tell their story as their family grows!  And can’t wait to meet their little one sometime this month…  Congratulations you two!

Maternity Session, Berks County, PA | Baby Didden on the way!

Luke and Stacey are having a baby!  So excited for them!!  It was only a couple of years ago that I was photographing them in Stacey’s back yard, as they stood on a flat bed saying their vows – surrounded by family, friends and hay bales.  Now I had the privilege of capturing their moments of anticipation as they wait for their little guy/girl?? to arrive this January.  Of course, a truck had to be part of the story – Luke’s truck this time.  Stacey even had a company onesie made for baby Didden!  Don’t miss the funny photos.  Luke is hilarious, but he is also SERIOUSLY excited for this addition to their family.  He “can’t wait” to meet the baby and neither can I!

MATERNITY PHOTO SESSION | READING, PA | EXPECTING BABY PJ!

Loved this maternity shoot! Kristin is glowing even more than usual and we had fun creating photos to celebrate their coming little one.   It won’t be long…  PJ could be here any day.  He is due the first week of May, but if he waits a little longer, he could arrive on Mother’s Day!

Maternity Photo Session | Reading, PA | Baby Z is on the way!

CONGRATULATIONS to Matt and Julie! During this shoot we were laughing and reflecting – this wasn’t the first session we have done together. The first time was back in 2010 for their engagement photos – when I was the one pregnant (with my son who is now almost 3, time flies!) Then the wedding in 2011; and now…so honored to do their maternity photos…and newborn photos when the little one arrives. Excited to meet baby Z!

Love the baseball theme with these two! Here is a shot from part of their engagement session in the Reading Phillies Stadium, and on the right is one of their wedding photos at the Foxchase golf course. The Yankee vs. Philly rivalry is just a little bit of the fun in their relationship.

And without further ado, the maternity session…
