Maria was one of my professor’s from college at Liberty; she taught my educational assessments course and was also my student teacher supervisor. For those of you that don’t know, I graduated from Liberty with a degree in Elementary and Special Education. I now work at a local high school as a special education teacher aside from owning my photography business; I do both and I love it!
While in college, I always remember thinking that Maria was superwoman! She taught college courses, supervised student teachers, ran 10 miles every day, had two small boys and homeschooled both of them, taught exercise classes, and always looked put together and adorable. It still baffles me to this day how she does it all. And to top it all off, she loves the Lord fiercely and inspires so many people daily.
Maria is now pregnant with her third boy; that’s right, 3 boys! Maria, her husband Mark, her 2 boys, and I headed out to the new wedding venue, Glass Hill Venue, for her maternity session. Oh my gosh y’all! This venue location is INCREDIBLE!! Glass Hill Venue is about to break ground to begin building the actual venue on their property and it is going to be an amazing venue! The land overlooks the mountains and the sun sets right in the center of the mountains; it made for the most beautiful backdrop. Thank you to Glass Hill Venue for allowing us to come out for this session.
And now, let’s actually get to the actual session! Here are my favorite images from Maria’s maternity session.
Maria’s two boys are so sweet!
These boys had the best time with the machines there. We made a deal that if they posed nicely for all of the pictures, then they could get a picture on the big machine.
The sunset this night was breathtaking. I am so grateful that this precious family chose me as their photographer and I cannot wait to see those precious photos of baby Dawson!
