Shayla and Doug are good friends of mine, and it was so much fun to get to photograph their maternity session over 4th of July weekend. My husband and Doug played football together in college and have been best friends ever since, and Doug started dating Shayla shortly after I started dating my husband, so we all quickly became good friends. Unfortunately, they live a couple hours away from us now, so we don’t get to see them as often as we would like, so it was extra special to get to spend 4th of July with them in Cape San Blas.
Shayla is due at the end of this month with their first baby, a little boy named Chandler, and I am so excited! Paul and I will be driving over when the baby arrives, and I’m already planning out props for his first photo session. I know Doug and Shayla will be amazing parents and I’m so happy to be able to document their maternity session and newborn session for them. We had so many fun photos from the maternity session that it was hard to narrow it down for a sneak peak, but here are a few of my favorites!
