Petersburg Maternity Session | Molly + John

Portraits

June 11, 2013

Do you guys remember back when the internet was still new and people were so scared to meet people they had met online in person?? Who knew what kind of people were on the internet…and lurking in chat rooms?? Back then it was kind of unheard of to meet people online! It was a scary new thing! These days it’s a lot different…pretty much EVERYONE is on the internet. A lot of people meet their significant others online. And lots of people form real friendships with internet friends! The internet brings people together. Thank you Al Gore! (kidding). Jokes aside, this is something that has been true for me, especially since the majority of my job takes place in my home office, where I work by myself. I have formed a few “internet” relationships with some really special people who I went on to meet in person…one of these is Molly! I can’t remember exactly how we “met” online, but I know we’ve been following each others blogs for some time now. Trading blog comments lead to emails back and forth about all kinds of things and then finally last week, we were able to meet in person!!

I was so excited to finally meet Molly and her husband John, but also a little nervous too…you never know if people are the way they are online in “real life” or if you’ll really click with them. Or if they’ll like you the same way they like your online persona!  But as soon as we finally met, and Molly was giving me a big hug, I knew I had no reason to worry…Molly is every bit as fun and sweet as she is on her blog! And her husband John is HILARIOUS. Meeting them was like meeting old friends for the first time!! John and I had SO much fun spending the evening with them! I left the session wishing that we lived closer to one another so we could hang out all the time.

Molly, you are one of the most kind and genuine people I’ve ever met and I feel so lucky to know you and call you a friend! You and John are such an amazing couple…you compliment each other so well and that is going to make you the best parents to your little nugget:)

I’m so honored to have been able to capture this important time for you guys!  Enjoy a few of my favorites!!

At this point it was raining pretty hard…so we ran out and hid underneath this bridge! I loved the light underneath here!

I loved the props they brought with them, but my favorite was a little sign that Molly’s mom made when she was pregnant with her. Molly’s parents had chosen to leave the baby’s gender a surprise, so they lovingly nicknamed Molly “Embry” (for embryo). Molly’s mom hung the sign in the delivery room while she was in labor with Molly and used it as an anchor. Since Molly’s mom passed away when she was younger, Molly plans to have the sign in the delivery room too as a way to have a piece of her mom there too!
