Friends, this is a very special blog post! I was blessed to be able to capture Malea and Eric’s Nashville maternity session earlier this week! Now, this wasn’t just any maternity session. It is extra special because Malea is my lovely cousin. So, their little boy already has a special place in my heart. <3
Now, originally, we had planned for a beautiful outdoor session since it is April! The spring is a lovely time of year in the Southeast! Everything is green and flowering! Our imaginations were running wild with the possibilities. However, the weather decided that it wasn’t ready to let go of its relationship with winter. (I.e. It was snowing just hours before our session.) And so, we moved our session indoors.
And, if I am honest, I loved it! The neutral colors of the bedroom and nursery made the session so cozy and light! It was absolutely perfect, and I am so pleased with how they turned out! And, then, near the end of the session, Malea and Eric agreed to run outside to take a few outdoor shots! They powered through the cold, and they looked amazing doing it! We even found a flowering tree in the neighbor’s front yard! 😉
Overall, it was a wonderful, wonderful session that I will cherish! I loved getting to spend time with family and capturing their memories! Now, we just have to wait for Baby Reising to arrive!
Malea and Eric,
I am so excited for the two of you to embark on this new adventure! You two are so sweet, and I can only imagine how darling your baby boy will be! I look forward to lots and lots of pictures once he arrives! And, I definitely can’t wait to see your mom hold him! (I don’t think anyone is excited as she is!) You two and your growing family are in my prayers! I cannot wait to see how the Lord blesses you! And, lastly, I can’t wait to meet your little guy!
