Expecting: Anthony & Julianne

There's so many wonderful things I can say about these two people. Their genuine kindness and deep care for people is beautiful, and I am thankful to know them! Their little Dominic is extremely blessed to have them as parents.

My husband and I first met these two when we stayed in their adorable home in Spokane via AirBnB. We had the best time chatting and getting to know them when Julianne was early in her pregnancy. It's always so amazing to me how God brings people of faith together in the most delightfully unexpected ways!

We then came back for another visit in the summer and Julianne was quickly approaching her due date. She hadn't taken any maternity photos yet so we snatched the opportunity to take a walk in the nearby Lincoln Park and capture this exciting - yet fleeting - time in their marriage.

It was so peaceful as we walked the trails of the park. The sun was the perfect kind of warm and the breeze was ever so soft. The only sounds other than our feet on the gravel were Anthony and my husband playing Pokémon Go on their phones and stopping every ten feet or so to catch a Pidgey lurking in the bushes! Our walk in the park was far more about spending time together than taking pictures. It made for a much more comfortable atmosphere when Iasked them to actually pause and pose.

It was hard to think of this session as work - it was much more like documenting an outing. If only all photo sessions were this comfortable and relaxed! We had such a lovely time with them and hope to spend time together again someday!
