Burgundy & Gold Maternity Session on the Palmetto Trail | Columbia, SC Maternity Photographer | Nicole Watford Photography

Oh, what a perfect November afternoon it was for this joyful maternity session at the Peak Trestle on the Palmetto Trail in Columbia, SC! The weather was absolutely perfect, with the golden leaves showing off their gorgeous hues and perfect blue skies shining over the Broad River. This sweet family was overflowing with joy as we made our way down the Peak Trestle bridge in the golden afternoon sunlight. I cannot think of a more perfect ending for my 2019 photography season than this!

Fall Maternity Session in Columbia, SC

This session was extra-special for me not only because it was my last session before maternity leave, but also because Ryan and Tuan’s sweet boy will be my first newborn session of 2020! I still remember when Ryan contacted me this summer and we found out that our due dates are just a week and a half apart. As we both approach our last few weeks of pregnancy, it’s been so exciting for me to feel the anticipation about not just my own baby’s arrival, but hers as well! I truly have the BEST job being able to capture so many sweet seasons for all these beautiful families!

Ryan and Tuan—Thank you so much for inviting me to capture the joy of this season for your sweet little family! I truly enjoyed our time together during your session, and I was so captivated by the love among the three of you! Your baby boy is definitely going to be a very loved little guy, and I’m so excited to meet him once he arrives. Enjoy these final weeks as a family of three, and I look forward to seeing you again soon! Big hugs to all, and prayers for a safe delivery for you and baby!
