The fog was rolling across the open fields as we arrived at Split Oak Forest on Sunday. The sun was peeking out through the moss covered oak trees. If you wanted a gothic-style maternity session like our dear clients, Sasha and Joey, it was THE perfect setting. With their *many* shades of black, their session gave off total Morticia and Gomez vibes for all you Addams Family fans out there.
To catch you back up, Sasha and Joey have been in my life since April of 2017 when Joey reached out to me to capture his proposal to Sasha. We have been super close ever since. From the proposal and engagement, pre-wedding boudoir, the wedding day, and Sasha’s solo maternity session, we’ve seen and done it all with this amazing couple. Until this Sunday.
Sasha and Joey are probably the most chill and down to earth people you’d ever meet. Sasha is a social worker and photographer, and Joey is a tattoo artist and piercer. They love love LOVE Halloween and have a very gothic vibe to them. It adds to their unique personalities and relationship! Sasha had her bright and natural maternity session without Joey back in June. She reached out to me asking if we could throw together a gothic maternity session to truly showcase them and their relationship. We are always down for what our clients love and we set out to Split Oak Forest on Sunday for a sunrise session.
Our time at Split Oak Forest was nothing short of an adventure. We explored the gorgeous terrain, playing in the fog and dewy grassy. Sasha and Joey displayed their love perfectly. They always have each other laughing! As we entered the clearing of trees with golden sunlight shining through, Jack unwillingly discovered a banana spider’s web. Perfect for that gothic Halloween vibe, right? Towards the end of our session, we played in the gorgeous wildflowers and Joey loved on his sweet baby girl.
This family unit is SO strong and Sage couldn’t have better parents. They are the most loving and caring individuals, and even more so as a family. We cannot wait to meet her soon and give her even more love. Sasha and Joey, we are so excited for your expanding family. You are already amazing with Judah, and will be equally as amazing with Sage. We love you both so much and can’t thank you enough for having us along on your journey. Until the next one! Check out their gothic Split Oak Forest maternity session below.
