In 2018, I met Alyssa and Dale when they were a part of Rachel and Jack‘s bridal party. So you can imagine my excitement when Alyssa contacted me to let me know that she and her husband are expecting their first baby in March, and they wanted me to capture these milestones for their family! Agh! What an honor! Alyssa and Dale are having a baby girl, and she’s even got a name already: Amaryllis Michele. The most perfect name! Alyssa just hit the 30 week mark in her pregnancy, and we got to hang out for a rainy January afternoon for their maternity session. You’d think we might have snowflakes in January, but of course we had a rainy day instead! It all worked out perfectly though, and we got to create some moody baby bump magic in the woods. Approaching parenthood for the first time is such an exciting season, and after a decade together, Alyssa and Dale are ready to make their duo a trio. Their smiles say it all. Here are some of my favorites from their winter maternity session, and I cannot wait to share Amaryllis’ newborn portraits with you in just a couple months.
