Carla & Bowe {with baby Grant}

The past two weeks I've been traveling around catching up with friends and family back east. For the first part of my trip, I accompanied my hubby to Washington, D.C., while he was at a week-long conference. In addition to being able to visit all my favorite art museums again {I used to live in the area when I was fresh out of WVU} I got to link back up with Carla and Bowe for their maternity portraits!

I first met Carla and Bowe here at Irwin; they were actually my first engagement session! A few months later I did Carla's Bridal this was extra special for me that timing worked out perfectly for me to be able to get to D.C. to follow the next chapter of their love story.

Apparently they didn't remember to "Kiss the Coyote" on their way off Irwin when they moved - {for those of you not familiar with Ft Irwin, there's a huge coyote sculpture at the front gate. The theory is that if you kiss it after exiting post for the final time, you'll never be stationed here again} - they'll be moving back here after Grant is born! Selfishly I'm really excited about seems like everyone I know is getting orders and moving out, so it'll be great to have a familiar face coming back...and I'll get to meet Grant! whoo-hooo!!

This was taken at the beautiful little church across the street from their apartment. As an artist, I really love getting to work in new placed; since 95% of my sessions are done locally here on Fort Irwin I really appreciated the contrast the city offers. Going from the clean-lined & modern apartment building to the quaint and cozy church was so great!!

Carla & Bowe- thank you so much again for allowing me the honor of continuing your love story!
