eastern influences

The maternity and newborn sessions for this adorable family had an international flavor, because mom and dad met in Turkmenistan. That’s his native country, and they met when she was teaching English to ex-pat kids there. They married and came here to have their baby, but are open to traveling where life takes them not long from now. I have a feeling that this baby’s passport will look better than mine very soon!

For their maternity session, she wore several dresses made while she was overseas. The fabric was gorgeous- rich colors and intricate designs. They were stunning outdoors-
