It’s the small things that make life big – Unknown

Today’s featured maternity photography session looks like pages out of a fairy tale,  a dreamy, wondrous, beautiful fairy tale.  Thank you to Stephanie of Darin Crofton Photography for sharing the small things that make life big with us today.

What We Love:

Stephanie: This sweet couple came to me in 2013 and asked me to take photos of them in their wedding attire. Erica, had opted to forego a big wedding for a big…ring! LOL! But she still wanted photos of her in her dress. From that moment, we were instant friends. Fast forward to spring of 2015. Erica contacted me once again to capture photos for her and her husband, Scott. This time for an even sweeter occasion! The two first time parents will welcome their baby girl Celeste in early November and couldn’t be more excited to be parents! We had an amazing time at their sun-drenched morning session in the park and I can’t wait to meet their little princess soon!

Rachel + Lisa: Who wouldn’t love the sun-drenched morning light pouring in over those willows? The light and the connection the photographer captured made this session very romantic – which is an important aspect often overlooked in maternity sessions –  but also incorporated a bit of humor.  We love it! congratulations to the new parents to be!

Gear: Canon 5d mk3, 50mm

Location: Seminole Heights, Tampa FL
