Lauren and I go back, way back! I believe our moms worked together when my mom found out she was pregnant with me. Our moms were close friends for a long time, then life happened and the two drifted apart. Lauren ended up leaving town and then returning after becoming an adult. We have ran into each other several times since she returned but never had the chance to “catch up”. That was until recently when I received a message from Lauren asking for my help with a secret she had…of course I happily agreed!
She asked if I could take some pictures of her and Rhett. After talking for a while, we decided the location should be her place.
Her house is a charming, little, country place. With a rocking chair front porch and beautiful trees filling the yard.
A dreamy portrait location and I absolutely could not wait to catch up with Lauren. So, what was the secret?
Lauren and Rhett are in the process of adopting and they wanted their session to reflect who they are, and their interests. This session turned into such a sweet, touching, and enjoyable session. I couldn't help but think of the blessings coming their way as I clicked away.
The love these two share was so evident and each picture captures the precious bond they hold not only as a couple but as a family.
I’m so thankful Lauren asked me to be apart of such a special part of her family’s memories. I didn't only enjoy catching up with her, and meeting Rhett, I enjoyed hearing the excitement in their voices as they explained to me the adoption process and how excited they are to be blessed with a little one in the near future. I will continue to keep Lauren and Rhett in my prayers and I ask that you too will add them to your prayer list. Wishing you two nothing but the best!!
