If you are a lucky enough photographer, you will meet and work with clients that will end up feeling more like friends. Jerry and I have experienced that luck many times and we are so grateful for it. Two friends we are happy to have made by way of photography are Brooke and Josh. Upon our first meeting, the connection was instant as if we had already been friends for a while, and it made working together an absolute dream.

Having already gotten to enjoy documenting the beginning and continuation of their love story, I pretty much squealed when Brooke reached out to me to let me know they were expecting and wanted us to capture their maternity photos. At this point, Brooke and Josh are super special to us, so of course we are over the moon to be able to capture this chapter in their lives for them.

We met on a sweltering Sunday in July at Hershey Gardens in Pennsylvania. A middle point for both of us, it seemed perfectly convenient and also absolutely beautiful. Brooke was an absolute boss when it came to braving the heat, I was so impressed! She chose a pink dress for our session that fit her complexion and style perfectly.

The gardens are laid out beautifully and have an abundance of my favorite things! There were so many flowers, huge magical trees, and views that I could stare at forever. I am so glad that I got to make art using this gorgeous spot and two of my favorite people. This is a couple that has a huge amount of love to give, and we know their baby is going to be one of the most loved babies in the world.

On our way out of the gardens, we stopped on the villa overlooking Hershey Park. This was a moment of nostalgia for Brooke and Josh as they remembered back to the day before their wedding, when they visited the park together to have some fun and shake some nerves! Pretty genius if you ask me!
