To be honest, we’d never even heard of The Cotswolds before this trip. All we knew was that people we loved were traveling through Europe in the exact timeframe that worked into our fall schedule, so we were really on board for whatever adventure they’d dreamed up! So you can imagine our surprise when we arrived in The Cotswolds and discovered the most picturesque little town that felt like a real-life storybook! We had no expectations, and it ended up being one of the best parts of the trip!

We couldn’t have picked a more perfect place to swap photos with our sweet friends, and  we especially couldn’t resist the chance to capture such a special time in Jill and Bud’s life! They’re expecting their first baby this December (a little boy!) and we know this period of waiting and anticipation is going to fly by. We teamed up with our talented friend Annamarie Akins, determined to squeeze in three separate sessions (including one for us!) all in ninety minutes! It was a joy to get to freeze this moment in time for them.

Jill and Bud are such a light.

Jill and Bud are such a light

Bud is the kind of guy who’d give you the shirt off your back. And we don’t even mean that in a figurative sense. He literally did that for Amy. He is so kind. He’s also adventurous, hysterical, easy-going and has the biggest heart. You only have to spend three minutes with him to know he’s going to be an amazing father. If only every little boy could have a dad like Bud!
Jill is Bud’s perfect match. She radiates love and warmth, and she’s the kind of person you immediately feel comfortable with. She’s the best storyteller and makes us laugh constantly. It was so sweet to see how much she already loves her little boy, and all we kept thinking was how lucky her son already is, and he doesn’t even know it yet!

Every time we spend any time with them, we always walk away wishing they lived closer. We loved getting them in front of our camera and are so excited to share a few of our favorites with you today!
