I feel like I have known Ligaya and Lincoln already for years thanks to the power of Facebook so I was so excited when they scheduled their maternity session with me! They are also photographers and are now expecting their first little one, Penelope! They were down for anything that would result in beautiful pictures and they both love creative and artistic styled shots so for me this was an effortless and beautiful shoot to do and it made my heart so happy editing their sneak preview.
I can't wait for them to see the rest as they await Penelope's arrival in September!

No matter how many birth stories I do, it's always an amazing and surreal experience to be a part of such a special day for the family and seeing someone born into this world.
I hadn't met Jena and Allyn before this day but from the moment I walked in their hospital room it was instantly comfortable and we all bonded over the six hours we spent together in the hospital and they (along with their family) were SO amazing, funny and just a true joy to be around during the entire waiting game of labor.
Jena was amazing and so strong. Finally a little before 6:00pm, Collyn (all 9lb 9oz of him) made his debut into this world on a sunny hot July day in St. Augustine, FL.
Much thanks to Jena, Allyn and their whole family for having me there to document this wonderful birth day ;)
