Where to begin with this beautiful family... The Folinos are an amazing family. Marco and Andrea are expecting their second son this August. Lorenzo is so excited to become a big brother, you can just tell! So Andrea asked me to photograph this special moment in their lives. She had this special vision in mind for her maternity shoot and wanted to visit Hope Hill Lavender Farm in Pottsville, PA. This place was so gorgeous!
We had imagined taking photos around golden hour, but when I arrived to the shoot the clouds were blocking the sunlight. Right away Andrea and I thought... "Ughhhh. There's goes that idea." But about 10 minutes into the shoot the sun broke through the clouds and we were so glad it did. This photo session could not have gone any better! Andrea looked stunning and the love for her husband and family really shows in these photos. Big thank you to the owners/farmers at Hope Hill for being so accommodating. We will definitely be back in the future! Also, I can't forget how sweet and gentle the little donkeys were. I enjoyed photographing them as well. Here are some of my favorites from Andrea's maternity session. Christian and I are so blessed to be able to capture these moments for a living. <3
