Father-Daughter Mini Session | Glessner Photography | Greensboro Family Photographer.jpg

When Randy inquired about scheduling a portrait session for him and his daughter as a Mother's Day gift to his wife, I was more than happy to oblige. Mini-sessions are my #1 recommendation for parents with young kids - I know all too well how short their attention spans really are, having a toddler myself now. A brief session avoids burnout and prevents them from having too much time to get tired or hangry :) 

It's always my advice to parents at these sessions to just relax and let their kids play and do their thing. The photos will happen, but we all know that kids are the worst for the parents and the slightest command to smile can send a two year old into a downward spiral. Thankfully, Randy and his adorable Olivia were more than happy to wander Tanger Family Bicentennial Gardens in Greensboro just stopping to smell the flowers...

Expectant parents Kamisha and Adrian pose for their maternity portraits taken by High Point-based family photographer Glessner Photography at Tanger Family Bicentennial Gardens in Greensboro.

I was lucky enough to meet Kamisha and Adrian in 2011 when my business was just a baby, and they were brave enough to trust a new photographer with only a few weddings under her belt with the what was to be the most important day of their lives (A+K - I'll forever be grateful to to you for that). It was then that I first got to know them and their infectious happiness when I photographed their engagement session and sat down with them over dinner at Sweet Potatoes in what felt like a meal with old friends. The following year, I photographed their beautiful wedding celebration at The Lofts at Union Square in High Point, NC.

We've kept in touch, with Kamisha assisting me on styled shoots and meeting for the occasional coffee, and I was so insanely excited when she emailed me earlier this year to let me know they were expecting their first little one! It's truly one of the greatest honors and compliments I can receive when past clients invite me to continue documenting the most defining and exciting moments of their journey together. I met up with Adrian and Kamisha at the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden in Greensboro last week for their maternity portraits (which basically turned out to be two hours of them laughing - at me and each other) in the beautiful fall evening light...

bridget+ryan :: maternity :: high point lifestyle photographer

Last week, I went over to our friends Bridget and Ryan's house (who you may remember from a recent post on B's baby shower) to snap a few photos before baby E arrives. There's just something special about taking photos at a family's own home - it's relaxed, it's personal, and in my opinion, it really is the best place to capture a moment in that family's life. 

It's strange photographing your best friends - the people you see on a weekly basis - I'm not quite sure why, but I always feel a bit awkward "working" in front of those I know. Thankfully, Bridget and Ryan were their sweet, sarcastic, adorable selves, and I am so happy that I had the opportunity to document this part of their lives before their family of two becomes three.

(Note: I may have gotten a bit too emotional/sentimental while editing and shed a tear of two. Sorry not sorry.)

I just love E's sweet little nursery, and I can't wait for there to be a baby in it!

There's just something so simple and mysterious about a silhouetted figure, which is probably why the images above are a couple of my favorites from the day.

We had to get one last photo of the family with just their furry baby boy. Poor Russ doesn't have any idea that his life is about to be turned upside down.  

Isn't B just the prettiest lil mama? I know she's probably rolling her eyes at me right now, but it's the truth!

Bridget+Ryan :: Thanks again for letting me share in the happiness and excitement and anticipation for the arrival of baby E! I've said it before but I'll say it again... y'all are going to be the most ridiculously cool/fun/awesome parents out there. He's going to be one spoiled baby boy if his auntie and uncle Glessner have anything to do with it :)
