If you didn’t know already, our associate wedding photographer Whitney Norko is an amazing maternity/newborn/child photographer here on the Outer Banks. Whitney has the reputation of making women want to have babies strictly so that they can be photographed by her…I am proof that this is not a rumor 🙂 This past weekend, I had the pleasure of assisting her with her spring mini sessions. Whitney orchestrated a magical setup packed full of flower fields, vintage props, and of course baby ducks & chicks! Everything looked perfect, and the baby animals were a hit with the all of the kids.
As I was thrown into Whitney’s world for a weekend, I couldn’t help but think of all the exciting things to come for Chad and I and this thing inside of me that is making what stomach muscles I have disappear. I think what I’m looking forward to most is being forced to stop and really appreciate life in its simplest form with all of its simplest beauties that we adults pass right by day after day. Even only 4 months into my pregnancy, I already feel a new sense of purpose.
I had time to grab a few behind the scenes photos of Whitney in action on day 1, and it was such a joy. She just has that natural ability to make kids and adults alike feel at ease in front of her camera. I can’t wait to see all of her weddings this year.
