Hi friends! Welcome to the AKP Blog! I'm Ashley Kapic and I'm a New Orleans + Gulf coast wedding photographer. Snuggle up with your love and feel free to browse around for some inspiration and enjoy viewing my latest work! Thanks for stopping by!
Amirah & Chad requested their maternity session in a tall grassy field, and Surrender Field in Yorktown did not disappoint!! However we were faced with a challenge! My favorite grassy field had been recently mowed (BOOO) and so we found another great spot. I absolutely adored both of them from the get-go. They were super funny and so down to earth. 💜 After taking some photos at the field, we drove closer to the beach area and walked around the colonial parts. During our walking around, I just totally fell in love with them! Seriously such a FUN and relatable couple!
After that, Amirah was ready to get into her second dress and we decided to do those on the beach! Her second maternity gown was absolutely stunning, and WOW- she literally has the most perfect photogenic pregnancy belly EVER! (Which is CLEARLY obvious in all the belly images I took!) During all the pictures at the beach we had discussed our preparations for hurricane Florence, as the session was a few days before the hurricane changed paths. (Luckily the hurricane totally missed us!)
By the end of the session I knew I had made a great friend, and I absolutely can not wait to hang out with these two again soon! This is Amirah’s third and final pregnancy, and I’m so glad I was able to photograph her sweet belly for the final time. They are expecting a baby boy next month and I can’t wait to see him! 😍
