Coming Soon…Baby McBryde | Greenville, SC Maternity Photographer

Can I just tell you how much I am LOVING Sammy and Craig’s “Coming Soon” maternity portraits?? I wanted to post their entire set of proofs; I love these pictures that much! You’ve already seen their Sneak Peek HERE, and from the comments, I see that you all feel the same way! THANKS for all the blog-love for us!


I am finding that I really enjoy maternity photography…there is something special and fresh about documenting a “new” family in an artistic way. There is so much excitement and love and dreams for the future and of course that “glow.” Becoming parents is a once- or twice-in-a-lifetime experience (or many more if you’re a Duggar 😉 …), and I think it is really important to preserve that time. If you or someone you know has a new addition “Coming Soon,” please send them my way!

Oops, I digress. I met Sammy and Craig up at his aunt’s north Greenville mountain home on a sunny but cool late-spring day. Their property has all sorts of neat spots for portraits…a gurgling stream, little cabins, an arbor, and groves of trees with ah-ma-zing light. I think we used all of them! Sammy was 34 weeks on the day of our session. Did I mention that I love these portraits??? Here goes…







I’m pretty sure I was screaming and squealing during this entire portion of our shoot. Sometimes I do that, LOL! It’s just hard to contain myself when I see stuff like this through my camera…






Adore. So completely cute! I didn’t even notice the smiley face on the tree stump until I got home after the portrait session, but it just sums up these last shots…


If you’re like me and you just can’t get enough of these maternity portraits, you can CLICK HERE for Sammy & Craig’s complete proof gallery. Password is the name of the little town where Craig’s aunt lives.

As always, I’d love for you to leave a comment and “show us some love!”
