Maternity Session with Amy and Stephen...

The last time I saw Amy, I believe that she was squatting behind home plate giving me the signal for some chin music in the form of my famous rise ball. Our faces were smudged with dirt as we repped CT all over New England and even in some National tournaments for fast-pitch softball. We were 16. Then 17, then 18. Amy was my battery mate for summer ball and represented someone who's spunky personality and athletic prowess had been forged into my memory as a very special part of growing up.

Fast forward 13 years and we are now women. Between then and now, Amy became a wife, followed by the title of expectant mother. When Amy contacted me to photograph her as for a maternity session, I was so completely honored and excited to be the one chosen to preserve this memory in her and her husband's lives. It's so nice to reconnect with someone through such a happy occasion, and to see the wonderful path that she has been on. This is the type of stuff that makes my heart melt, and I am so glad to be able to share, connect, and capture these moments. Amy and Stephen, congratulations! I'm so glad that you have also chosen to keep the he/she question a surprise...I can't wait to meet the new little one when s/he arrives!

  2. Carrie- I love the use of the reflections in the water and the fall colors are wonderful. My favorite part of the photographs though, is the way that you captured the soon-to-be mom and dad's "secret". You can sense their excitement and love through these photos... and they made me smile :)
