I first met my beautiful friend amanda years ago when she came to work at the palette. I liked her immediately – she was funny, smart and so great to work with. so when she told me that she was going to be moving to indiana with her boyfriend chris, I was sad to see her go but excited for her as she embarked on a new journey. we kept in touch via facebook and I followed all of the cool things that were happening in her life – new jobs, new friends.. then one day I learned that she was pregnant and I couldn’t have been happier for her! selfishly, upon hearing the news, I wished that we lived closer so that I could photograph her maternity session but was happily surprised when she said that they were coming back east to see family and friends before their son was born. we had a gorgeous afternoon and decided to stay in town and work by the river. amanda has always been so beautiful, inside and out, but as an expectant mother she simply glows and it was such an honor for me to document their joy. I am so very happy for you my friend xoxo
