Ocoee River, Cleveland TN | Maternity Session
Being a teacher and a photographer has its rewards and its challenges. Working a full time job while busting it in your side gig is certainly a challenge, but getting to be a part of your students' celebrations is one of the biggest rewards. When Emma's mom, a close friend and coworker of mine, asked if I could do Emma's maternity shoot, I was elated! I've watched Emma grow since middle school, watched her excel in highschool, and now I'm so excited to watch her become a mother.
We started the day celebrating with her maternity shower which took place in the library at Cleveland High School. It was so much fun to see teachers, past peers, old teammates, and family members surround Emma with all the love! After, we headed to the Ocoee river for her maternity session. We had such a blast--sometimes I felt like we were laughing more than we were taking pictures.
I am not a mother yet, but working with hundreds of young people, I can already tell that Emma is going to be an incredible mother. The love she already has for Jax is only going to get bigger, and we can't wait to welcome little boy to the world!
