your life is beautiful

Ben + Meri | An At-Home Maternity Session | Bedford, England

“People smile and tell me I’m the lucky one,
And we’ve only just begun.
Think I’m gonna have a son.
He will be like she and me, as free as a dove,
Conceived in love.
Sun is gonna shine above.

And even though we ain’t got money,
I’m so in love with you, honey,
And everything will bring a chain of love.
And in the morning, when I rise,
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright.”

-Kenny Loggins

Guys, this session is so special to me. Meri is a good friend of mine who’s been supportive of me since I started my photography journey years ago. In fact, she was one of the first people to model for me, and y’all, I was bad. Really, really bad.

Thankfully, by the time Meri got pregnant with her first child, I’d improved greatly, and I was so happy to be able to take these photos of Meri and her husband Ben, first at home, and then at a field where they walk their dog, Buster.

I always love photographing people in places that are special to them. Places where they’re comfortable and happy – I always get the best pictures that way.

(And you know I care about Meri, because that song up there? That’s my song, so I wouldn’t use it for just anyone.)IMG_4794 IMG_4809 IMG_4820 IMG_4840 IMG_4844 IMG_4858 IMG_4862 IMG_4889 IMG_4890 IMG_4914 IMG_4918 IMG_4940 IMG_4950 IMG_4965 IMG_4980 IMG_5008 IMG_5012 IMG_5032 IMG_5050 IMG_5062 IMG_5066 IMG_5072 IMG_5081 IMG_5082 IMG_5085 IMG_5103 IMG_5115 IMG_5132 IMG_5150 IMG_5173 IMG_5220 IMG_5227 IMG_5239 IMG_5261 IMG_5289 IMG_5292 IMG_5317
