I always thought that photographing weddings would be my jam, naively thinking that I couldn’t find exhilaration and fulfillment that comes from a wedding day….that is, until I started photographing families. Alexa contacted me not too long ago to share her vision for a family and maternity session before she, Dante, and little Chase welcome baby girl into the world. I was so excited about this session, because not only is she a good friend to a couple Patrick and I have photographed, but she eagerly scheduled a time for us to capture her amazing family. She and Dante have a sweet love that you feel the instant that you meet them, and little Chase has an energy and smile that’s contagious! I hope you enjoy seeing this family’s amazing story as much as we enjoyed capturing them!

Alexa was my muse for this shoot and I was selfishly stealing her away any chance I could for individual portraits. Can you blame me when she looks this fierce?!

Alexa’s not the only one who looks fierce! Dante has the GQ look down! This family is seriously gorgeous, and their interactions were just amazing. Family goals for sure!

Dante, Alexa, and Chase, thank you for letting us spend a beautiful afternoon with you! We connected with you all from the moment that we met, and I am so excited for all of the new pages that are being turned in your life!!! I know baby girl will be just as gorgeous as the rest of you, and is already feeling just how loved she is!!! Congratulations, you three!
