Mary and Ben were two of my very first clients in Wilmington. Mary reached out to me before I moved here, and she was one of the first engagement sessions I did in town, THREE YEARS AGO! Time is a crazy thing. And little did I know that these two would soon become amazing friends of mine, even before their wedding day. It’s a beautiful thing to get to watch their family begin, and watch their family grow by adding one more to the mix. We did their maternity session in downtown Wilmington on the DAY BEFORE they went into the hospital to stay the night before they induced Mary. The next day, sweet, happy, and healthy baby Henry came into the world. So instead of doing two separate blog posts, I’m combining both these photo sessions as a little before & after. I mean seriously, these photos were taken like 8 days apart. Mary and Ben are already amazing parents, and it doesn’t hurt that their pup, Mason, is already a great big brother, too. Thankful for people like this in my life, and getting to document all these major moments.
