Sean + Caitlyn: Maternity Photos
Sean & Caitlyn were the very first people to trust me enough to book me as their wedding photographer. After taking their engagement photos, Caitlyn messaged me and said that she loved them so much and couldn't wait for me to capture all of their big moments in the future: their wedding, maternity, newborn, family photos, etc. Two years later, here we are! Baby Burton is due in July and she's blessed to have two of the sweetest people as parents! I am so excited that we got such an incredibly beautiful night to document Sean & Caitlyn's journey into the last few weeks of preparation before their little girl arrives. These photos are gorgeous and I'm so thankful that the sun came out to shine in them with this little family.
After spending the past few months in quarantine and going on SO many extra walks with my dog, I have quite a few new bucket list locations that I've added to my collection of secret gems. While chatting with Caitlyn about what her vision for her maternity photos was, I was exploring this little park for the first time. She said she probably wanted somewhere woodsy & I immediately sent her a few photos from my walk. She agreed that it would be PERFECT for these photos and oh my, perfect it was.
The golden hour sunset made this forest so dreamy and I'm in love with how Sean and Caitlyn stand out so well among all of the green. When I first started photography, I hated photographing greens & would always rather working in more of an urban setting. Now that I've been doing this for a few years, I don't think there's anything as beautiful or as magical as a forest. Well, maybe a forest by the river. As we walked and explored, it felt like we weren't even in Ohio anymore.
Caitlyn is a teacher & is almost out of (virtual!) school for the summer. We talked about opening up our pools and hoping that warmer weather hits Cincinnati soon. She's excited to really soak up these last few weeks with just her and Sean before bringing baby girl home, but she also says she feels like she's been pregnant forever & is excited to hold her sweet baby in her arms instead.
I am beyond excited to document this family of three once baby girl arrives in July and I just know she has the sweetest parents who already love and adore her so much. I can't believe that after all of these years this was my LAST session with just Sean & Caitlyn, but I know that it'll be so incredible to add their sweet new addition into family photos and I can't wait to meet her in July!
