Pregnancy Photographer based in Asheville, NC shares a look at a summer, lakeside Maternity Session shot at Lake James, just outside of Asheville!

Hannah Whitesides feels like Sunshine. Anyone who knows her would tell you the same…

I love Hannah so, so much!! I’ve always felt this way about her, she’s such an incredibly special human being! It has been such a treasure to be part of the biggest milestones in her life over the last few years!! I’ve photographed her Engagement Session, Bridal Portrait Session and her Wedding as seen on my Wedding Blog, here: Hannah + Josh

Needless to say, when Hannah + Josh let me now that they were expecting their first baby, I was positively delighted to help them to document this incredibly special season of their lives as well!

Hannah + Josh are self described “Lake People”! They own a boat, the live on Lake Wylie and Hannah grew up spending her summers on Lake James which is in her home town, Marion — which is just about 45 min outside of Asheville! They wanted to shoot a ‘Lake Maternity Session’ so we met up at Lake James a few weeks before her due date (and it’s a good thing because little Ms. Austin Beth made her grand entrance about a week later!) 😉

My favorite thing about this session was that Hannah was totally game to get into the water at the end of her session! And these photos are everything! Enjoy!
