I have cherished a lifelong bond with Story’s Nursery, watching it evolve over the years, and now, I find myself returning with my own precious little ones. One day, as I wandered through the nursery’s enchanting beauty, I thought to myself: why not capture unique maternity photos in this magical place?
Filled with a deep sense of connection, I reached out to Erin, a kindred spirit who shares both a love for animals and the rustic charm of farm life, while possessing an extraordinary talent for artistry. The nursery’s whimsical, free-spirited, and bohemian aura perfectly mirrored Erin’s vibrant personality, making it the ideal backdrop for unique maternity photos.
In a heartbeat, I was driven by an overwhelming desire to encapsulate this phase of her life, one that was so beautifully in sync with the nursery’s essence. The excitement from Erin during the photoshoot was electric!
Reconnecting with Erin and Welcoming Joe: A Heartfelt Maternity Photoshoot
My history with Erin runs deep, rooted in shared adventures and countless moments spent together. This encounter marked my first introduction to her boyfriend, Joe, and my heart brimmed with joy as I witnessed what a genuine, kind-hearted soul he was. It was a heartwarming revelation because, in my eyes, Erin is deserving of nothing but boundless happiness.
During our session, I couldn’t resist teasing Joe in good humor. His ability to take those playful jabs with a hearty laugh and a warm smile created a beautiful connection, one that broke the ice and fostered a sense of togetherness that was truly special.
Love Notes From Erin + Joe
“I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, our maternity shoot was an absolute dream. Courtney was a blast to work with. Her light-hearted attitude kept it fun and comfortable as she guided us through some poses when we got stuck, taking all the stress away which was a HUGE help to my partner and I. We felt so at ease, and through that she captured such special candid moments. The final outcome was so much better an anything I could have dreamed of.”
