This mama.  To know Cheré is to love her.  She exudes love and joy, embracing life and loved ones with total abandon.  She was absolutely radiant during her maternity session.  And Pablo.  It is clear to anyone that he is smitten with his beautiful wife.  He was so tender and sweet as they walked hand-in-hand down the cobblestone streets of downtown Wilmington.

This was the perfect weekend for their photos as we had to cancel three weeks in a row due to torrential rain.  On this day the sky opened up and the sun shone brightly allowing a beautiful, warm light to envelope them.  It was an all-around joyful weekend as they were welcoming family and friends to town for their baby shower the following day.  There's so much to celebrate when a family is welcoming a baby or child into the family!

Of course when you're celebrating something as life changing as a new baby one always wants to look and feel amazing.  I know, I know.  You are wondering where she got this form-fitting floral confection.  Pink Blush Maternity of course!  And a huge thank you is in order to the talented stylists at Beauty Bar Boutique for enhancing Cheré's gorgeous self and making her feel so loved and pampered.

This is one of my favorite images ever.  This, my friends, is what's known as a light leak.  However, I like to call it MAGIC!  Pure magic.  Thank you to the kind and creative souls at my favorite film lab in the universe, Richard Photo Lab, for my gorgeous scans.  You gals and guys always rock!
