Cooper is coming!! | Apex, NC Maternity Portraits

To say that I love this family, is an understatement! Kristen was one of the first brides to take a chance on Tara Parker Photography. Who would have known how far we all would have come by now when Kristen and I met that first day. Kristen and her husband Quentin had one of my favorite engagement sessions to date (You can see it here!) and they had an absolutely gorgeous fall wedding in 2010 (You can see that here!). I couldn’t have been more thrilled when I saw the Facebook post last spring that Kristen and Quentin were expecting a baby! I was so honored to be able to capture some fall maternity pictures and some family portraits with their other oldest son, Kaelob. I am even MORE thrilled to be photographing Cooper’s birth ANY.DAY.NOW!!!! It is a humbling thing to be a part of all of the biggest moments in a person’s life and to know that they will be looking at your pictures throughout their family’s history. I am BEYOND honored that I will be able to come full circle with Kristen and Quentin while they welcome their new baby boy, Cooper, into this world. There is NOTHING like photographing the moment that a life enters this world! I can’t wait! 🙂

    I was able to get a little sneak peek of these pictures because Kristen is one of my best friends but seeing them here brought tears to my eyes. You have captured who Kristen, Q, and Kaelob are so well. From Kristen’s always contagious laugh, Q’s true love for a women he met when they were just kids, to Kaelob’s cute little sense of humor. They are a wonderful family and we are all sooooooo excited for Cooper to arrive. Great job Tara!!
