Jade & Steve’s Maternity Session!

I am SO thrilled to share this maternity session with you friends!!  I know I say I’m thrilled a lot – and I genuinely am.  This session is so special to me because it’s for one of my sweet brides and grooms.  I photographed Jade and Steve’s wedding last November at Buttermilk Falls Inn – you may remember her beautiful sequin bridesmaid gowns, their teary first look at the altar or all the girls performing a choreographed dance for Steve!

Jade and I connected so well through the process of their wedding, that I was seriously SO happy when I found out Jade and Steve moved up to Rochester this spring!  Steve accepted a job up here, and they moved up to a new house and expecting their first baby!  I am so happy for them and selfishly excited to have them up here in CNY!

We met Jade and Steve at Cobbs Hill Reservoir Park, which has pretty views of the city, architecture, and some woodland areas.  And of course Jade was looking gorgeous in her Anthropologie dress!  It was so sweet to see them pregnant!  And the light was just beautiful :)

Afterward, Jade and Steve invited Derek and I for dinner and it was so wonderful to catch up!  I am so grateful to know these two and so excited for their next phase of life!  I know they’ll be such loving and amazing parents – they are so gracious and giving and I know that will bless this new little life.
