Andowen Photography Maternity Photoshoot Mepkin Abbey, Moncks Corner, SC I remember the moment I found out I was pregnant with my son Austin...oh, the sheer wonder of it all! And the hormones, and the cravings, and the sleepless nights, and...I knew my life would never, ever be the same. Two hearts beating inside one body. What a remarkable gift from God!

Kent and Megan asked me to capture their growing bundle of joy so we happily made our way to one of my favorite places: Mepkin Abbey. Located in Moncks Corner, SC, it is a haven for those seeking solitude and rest. There is a group of monks who live there and take care of the property, and guests are welcome to tour the grounds and enjoy the beautiful scenery on the edge of salt-water marshes.

"Mepkin Abbey is a community of Roman Catholic monks established in 1949 on the site of the historic Mepkin Plantation located on the Cooper River, north of Charleston, South Carolina. Founded by the monks of Gethsemani in Kentucky, the brothers of Mepkin belong to the worldwide Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance popularly known as Trappist. Following The Rule of St. Benedict, the monks at Mepkin Abbey devote their lives to prayer, spiritual study, work and hospitality." ~ Mepkin Abbey Website
