Erin + Ryder | Maternity Session at Point Defiance Park Tacoma


SO many of my past wedding couples are expecting babies this year! It makes me so happy for them, and even MORE happy that I get to be a part of yet another journey for a couple. Erin and Ryder were one of my first wedding couple's when I decided to become a full-time wedding photographer - and that was in 2015! I was so happy to show them everything I've learned since then, and get to work with them again for this next journey in life.

Time seriously flies doesn't it? Which is why I find it so important to have these big life changing moments captured. I 100% believe that having photos to look back on and enjoy for life is such a gift. And that fact that three of their biggest photo sessions I got to be a part of and create for them (engagement, wedding and now baby!) makes my heart just explode. I get to be a part of so many stories, and journeys and lives - it's something I will treasure all my life.

Erin and Ryder live closer to the Oregon border, so we met in Tacoma at Point Defiance Park - which is SO beautiful. I can't believe it was the first time I shot there! I literally want to take more people there for sessions, it's so pretty We played on the beach for awhile and then got those PNW woodsy feels in - which apparently will match Baby Pell's nursery! 

The photos speak more than words, so enjoy this adorable and warm maternity session!
