Mindy and Ryan’s Folly Beach Maternity Session

filed in

I don’t even know where to begin. I felt so honored + excited to be able to take photos for this sweet couple. It took 10 years to get to this point and I couldn’t help but have all the feels right along with them. I may have even teared up behind my camera a little bit. I also may or may not have tripped at the beginning of our session and totally fell into the sand. Which isn’t surprising since I’m super clumsy. It was a great ice breaker though I guess. haha
