The Longs | A Life Story | Romantic Fall Maternity Session | Manhattan, KS

Almost three years ago I first met Kailyn as she was waiting for her husband to return home from Afghanistan. It was their redeployment ceremony, and they were thirty minutes away from being reunited again. She was just so giddy about seeing him---and rightly so! 

Friday I photographed my second session with them, and they were as giggly and sweet as ever! It was clear that their joy was laced with the wonderful knowledge that they would soon get to be parents. 

Take a little stroll with me through their sweet fall maternity session in Manhattan, KS!

UGH! Their gorgeous romance. I just can't handle it.

Kailyn wears pregnancy so well. When I asked her how it was going, she had nothing but positive things to say. These few shots of her alone were some of my favorite because of the grace she exudes!

We ended our session in the most magical nugget of fall.

It was beautiful. Stupid beautiful.

Thank you both for letting me photograph you! You're always so sweet and cute together. :) I'll be bursting at the seams when it comes time for your newborn session! Best of luck during these final days of pregnancy!
