Mel and Shekia - An Intimate Garden Maternity Session - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Mel and Shekia are expecting! Words cannot begin to express how happy we are for them. We photographed Mel and Shekia’s wedding in March 2017

Fast forward one year and now they will experience the miracle of bringing a new life into the world. I can’t imagine the number of emotions they are feeling right now as they embark on parenthood for the first time. We are so excited to watch Mel and Shekia become parents. Bringing a life into the world is a miracle that can never be explained in words. 

Shekia texted me a few weeks ago and asked if I photographed maternity sessions. I almost screamed because I knew that she had some wonderful news for us. Shekia advised that her and Mel were expecting and they would love for Derrick and I to photograph their maternity session.  Of course we said YES! Mel and Shekia are a blast to photograph and we were blessed to be a part of their celebration. Mel found a cozy, quiet location named Awbury Arboretum which was the backdrop for their portrait session.

Mel and Shekia will be awesome, loving parents and we cannot wait for their  bundle of joy to arrive soon. We absolutely loved every photograph from their session but here are just a few of our absolute faves :)
