Leann and Joe - a maternity session! | Franklin, Pennsylvania photographer

. I was so excited for this session.  Leann is a dear friend of ours.  So dear, in fact, that my oldest asked me the other day "so how are we related to Leann?".

When Leann announced her pregnancy, it was such a wonderful blessing.  Leann and her family had a tough year, losing some very dear loved ones.  But the anticipation of a new life and a new journey gives them such hope for a lot more happiness and joy in the future.

I met Leann and Joe at the farm.  Leann's family are sheep farmers!  And when she and Joe married, they moved into her grandparent's farm.  The house, the hills and the fields are where Leann spent all of her childhood and it is the only place she ever wanted to live when she grew up.   I don't blame her, it is such a beautiful area - so quiet and peaceful.   And I was so thrilled to use such a meaningful location to document this time in their lives.

I do have to give Leann lots of credit.  We traipsed all over their farm that beautiful afternoon.  We went up hills, over fences and through the mud.  For a woman who was only mere weeks from giving birth, she did such an amazing job!

Onto the pictures!!!!  Isn't she just beautiful?!!


And, I do have to add.....Leann and Joe welcomed in their new baby girl last week!  Evelynn Grace is perfect and absolutely beautiful!  And I have already completed her newborn session and will be sharing those pictures soon!  Please join me on my Facebook page so you can see some sneak peeks as soon as they are ready!!!

Thank you so much Leann and Joe!!!!!!!
