Carrissa & John's Maternity Session

John and Carrissa are very special to us! Carrissa is actually the reason I ventured into wedding photography. Back in 2015, she kindly asked me if I would shoot her December 2016 wedding. I was honest and told her I hadn't done any weddings before (and secretly I was terrified at the thought of doing weddings!). Thankfully, Carrissa is kind and compassionate and took a chance on me, because here I am now... :)

Josh and I have had the awesome privilege of capturing many of John and Carrissa's milestones. From their engagement session, wedding, various family photos, and now they're about to be parents! They are two very special people and we feel blessed to call them friends. Between Carrissa's contagious laughter and John's witty humor, there's never a dull moment with these two.

Carrissa wanted to meet for ice cream at the Strasburg Creamery, an adorable little ice cream shop that I actually grew up going to! Then we headed to Fireside Tavern and made it to a field just in time for golden hour. Oh, I completely forgot to mention, they brought their adorable puppy, Devon, to the session! It was just a very special day!
