My name is Trinity, and I am the owner and photographer behind Treebird Photography in Wilmington, North Carolina.
This session is special for several reasons. Mary is a fellow photographer who is expecting a baby girl this coming January with her husband John. I always feel especially honored to photograph other photographers during important times in their lives. Mary and I crossed paths in the summer of 2011 when I was working in property management. It was soon after I had received my first DSLR camera. I was hooked on photography, but wasn’t quite sure yet if I would make it a profession. Mary walked in the door to the office and sat at my coworker’s desk. I initially noticed her beauty, but my attention was triggered again when I heard her say that she was a photographer. I immediately looked up her website, Mary Me Photography, and I was so impressed with her work. I thought she had it all. :)
In that moment, I decided that I was going to follow my dream too. Mary and I never actually met that day, but I definitely remembered her, and I have told that story of my “Aha Moment” several times. Now, three years later, I receive an inquiry from Mary for her maternity session. She still had never met me or ever heard my story. It was so amazing to me that everything had come full circle. This session was truly magical, and I have Mary to thank for styling it so beautifully. I am so happy for Mary and John as they enjoy this time before their daughter’s arrival.
