Kristen + Jamie | CNU Maternity Session

maternity session yellow maternity dress

I first met Kristen and Jamie last year when my business was just a little baby. I was advertising portfolio images for engagement-like sessions, and Kristen messaged me with interest! I’m SO glad she did because she’s definitely become a friend and we’ve kept in touch. So when she announced her pregnancy, she asked me to do her maternity session and I couldn’t have been more excited!

I helped Kristen find a dress online and we both agreed yellow would be perfect. We both had our hopes set on a beach maternity session, but the weather decided it wanted to be rainy! The only good covered location I could think of was at Christopher Newport University- which you all know I love so dearly. So we met there, and had so much fun!

We also had the idea of doing a flower crown and since Kristen used to work for a florist, getting one specially made for her was a piece of cake! I LOVED IT! And as you can see from these photos, Kristen is absolutely beautiful! She’s 7 weeks away from her due date- so close! Jamie was a goofball and his “belly pics” were hilarious!!

I absolutely LOVE Kristen and Jamie. They are both the easiest people to get along with, and Jamie (the extroverted one) is always cracking me up! They are going to be such amazing parents and I can’t wait to meet Mr. Wyatt! Dibs on the newborn photos!!! 😜
