Gavin + Lauren: Maternity

My friends Gavin and Lauren are expecting their first baby girl in a few short weeks and we went to the Smokies to capture this season of their lives. They are clearly very in love, and it's sweet to see their excitement and affection that's already growing in them for their little one. Gavin kept Lauren and I laughing for the majority of our shoot together, cracking dad jokes already right and left. When photographing a couple, helping your clients "stay connected" to each other during their shoot is important to create images that portray a couple's love and affection for one another. Sometimes this is hard to do, because it's easy to freeze up in front of a camera and feel awkward with PDA (I know I do at least). I told Gavin and Lauren that they were pros at "staying connected" and showing affection with one another. I basically just followed them around with a camera and captured them interacting with one another, so they made my job super easy! Enjoy some of their cute pictures :)
