I fell in love with Taryn and David when we first met. We spent almost two hours talking about everything from their pregnancy, to traveling, to family, to AirBNB’s, to our sweet little fur babies. As any expecting couple would be, they were giddy with anticipation at meeting their little one and joyful in their dreams for their growing family. Individually, it is clear that they are strong, independent humans. Taryn has that warm, quiet calm about her that instantly puts you at ease in any situation. And David is full of positive energy and uplifting speech. Together they are affectionate, affirming, and always smiling.
These expecting love birds knew exactly what they wanted when it came to documenting their baby’s birth. And they wanted it all. As you enjoy Taryn and David’s beautiful maternity session, keep in mind that there is so much more to come from these two. Not only did we document her beautiful pregnant form in these last weeks as a family of two, but we photographed and filmed their baby’s birth as well as shot their newborn session. Guys, just wait for their video. We filmed it all and interviewed them!! You’re definitely going to need tissues for it! Be on the look out for that in the next couple of weeks!
Taryn is a labor and postpartum doula with Wilmington Coastal Doulas. I had not met her before our meeting but knew who she was as I had literally just met Whitney, owner of WCD, the week before. And after meeting Taryn in person I could see that her quiet, positive demeanor would be so helpful and calming to a mother and father in the labor and delivery room. I just recently worked along side Taryn during a delivery and her calm, patient presence was so reassuring to the couple. Don’t think twice about hiring a labor doula. Just do it! It’s not something you will regret!
Can we talk about Taryn’s gorgeous mermaid hair?! It took three ladies at Beauty Bar Boutique to blow out these long blonde locks. As always the stylists at BBB know how to love on my mamas! Thank you guys!!
When you’re expecting a child your mind is constantly set on the future. You’re setting up a nursery, making plans for laboring, preparing your home for a tiny human, and always wondering what life is going to be like once your little one is finally here. The time a woman is given to carry her child is precious and beautiful. It is a time for her to prepare her heart and mind for this teeny, tiny stranger that she will love immensely. To all of my expecting mamas, be kind to yourself, treat yourself, and cherish this time. Big, beautiful changes lie ahead!⠀
