Meet Nia & Nathan & Baby Girl!
So my friends, this post is long overdue. Nia and Nathan had their little girl a few weeks before we had Miriam, but I love these photos (and these people!) so much, I had to make sure their shoot was archived on the blog.
Nia is my best friend. We met in college and lead a campus club (International Friendship Connection) together, were in Bible studies together, were suite-mates one year and housemates the next. She has walked with me through the hardest years and deepest pains of my life but also my greatest joys. Although we are hours away nowadays, we’ve kept up weekly phone calls with each other for over 4 years. I actually was friends with Nathan first though! We’re the same age and have so many fun college memories. Together these two make up my favorite couple and I was so honored to capture these photos for them in this sweet season of anticipation of their little girl.
These photos were taken during a little weekend getaway. We loaded up Lydia and met these two at a historic farmhouse for a weekend of games, food, and just being together. I like to think of it as our joint babymoon and it couldn’t have been sweeter 🙂 It has been such a joy to welcome Nia to mamahood and to share our joys and struggles together each week in a new way. What a blessing to share with such a dear friend.
Enjoy these summery, happy maternity portraits!
