The weather is beautiful! Wish you were here!

The weather hit the70* mark much earlier than planned! I am grateful though, I needed a little warm weather encouragement and inspiration. I was actually thinking about running a special just for the warm weather, but I have a *special session* reserved for a very deserving family… I can’t wait to shoot their session sometime soon. 🙂

So, as we all know, I took a vow to myself the other day to get out and BE INSPIRED, despite all the sickness I’ve been experiencing… And it has kiiiind of been getting worse {I’ve never had such a dry throat in my LIFE!}. With a baby on the way, there is limited medicinces I can consume, so I will just have to deal with it. {Anyways…} For my inspiration, I went to the Brandenburg Riverfront Park on the Ohio River. Brandenburg is in Kentucky, and with Indiana, it sandwiches the Ohio River. It is a beautiful walk along the river, though pretty short. I took advantage of the blank sidewalk while I could {due to the awesome weather, there was far more people there than I expected}; I only shot a few shots, since all of my images were self-shot {remote controlled} because of course, I have a working {and amazing} husband. Of about the 20-25 shots I took {some of them were off-centered more than I appreciated}, about 5 or 6 turned out to be my favorites.

Here I am, at 23 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I wanted to get some more pictures to remember this special period in my life; all other ones I’ve done have been inside and limited creativity. I hope that for my family, seeing these images replaces a bit of the distance between us {both to my family in Seattle, WA and to my husband’s family in Beckley, WV}. Wish you were here!

And since I never posted a photo reveal on here about the gender of our precious babe, here’s another from the “reveal” set we did for our families.

I hope you all enjoy!

Love to all,
Elise & Chad @ EMP
