Fort Loudon, PA: Laken's Woodsy Maternity Session at Cowan's Gap


You may be thinking, "Hey, these guys look familiar..." and you're right! Last year, I had the special honor of photographing my cousin Wayne and his wife Laken's beautiful outdoor wedding in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (if you missed it, you can view their wedding blog here)! This year, they announced that they are expecting their first little one! Everly Marie is expected to arrive early September and our family couldn't be more excited to meet her!

I met up with Laken and Wayne at Cowan's Gap State Park in Fort Loudon, Pennsylvania for their maternity session. It was a perfect fit for this mountain mama-to-be and outdoors loving couple! Wayne loves to fish and they both love to hunt, so I knew the lake and woodsy feel would be a perfect way to celebrate and welcome their little girl! We spent the evening walking around the lake, laughing at Wayne's humor, and catching up on life. It was a perfect summer evening in the mountains of PA!

Laken & Waynie - I can't thank you enough for choosing me to not only be a part of your wedding day, but also in welcoming Everly to the family! For a photographer, being able to watch a family grow through their photographs is truly an honor and one of the best parts of the job. I know I can say it for the rest of the family- we're all SO incredibly excited to meet your little girl in September! She's going to be absolutely beautiful all around!
