Wissahickon Valley Maternity Session | Natori & Alex

When Natori reached out to me, I was in a state of awe and honor. One of my babies was having a baby, and she wanted me to photograph part of her pregnancy. (Cue cartwheels)

Natori and Alex expressed that they wanted a maternity session that showcased natural beauty, surrounded by luscious greenery and water. Our presence was to subtly emphasize the majesty of this journey as well as the commitment to new life.

As a result, we met in Wissahickon Valley, fought a few geese (did you know they hiss at you?!), and nestled along the creek for the amazing session.

Even though my baby has grown, Natori looks just as beautiful as she’s always been.

Alex agrees that she’s a beauty, too.

I’m not a parent, but the attentiveness and love of Alex and Natori to each other showed me that these two could not be more excited and ready to become parents.

Congratulations to the both of you, and thank you for the honor of documenting your pregnancy.
