WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING: Cravings.. (in Melissa’s case….McDonalds:), the invisible gravitating pull that makes people want to rub your belly..like you are a good luck charm, stretchy waistbands, diminishing visibility of your own two feet, swollen ankles, heartburn, backache, and best yet…..the pregnancy “waddle”…
WHAT TO ALSO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE’ EXPECTING: Overwhelming joy, closeness with your husband, a glow that can outlast any Revlon or Maybelline bronzer, an abundance of constant encouragement from those near and dear to you, an excuse to eat gummy bear vitamins, front row parking at the mall, and best yet…the lovely anticipation of the life YOU created.
Melissa and Travis have only been in our lives for a little over a year..but we have already photographed them several times..and those few short encounters have been some of our favorites sessions ever…I love their comfort together and in front of the camera..its somewhat effortless:) They are completely trusting of our vision..even if a location looks sketchy and there are some unusual characters on bikes circling our parameters:) Pregnancy is such a monumental time in a woman’s life…and I feel so blessed Mel and Trav allowed me to put that belly to work for a few hours:)
M + T….Ella Marie has no idea what an amazing world she will be brought into in a few short weeks. Your love for eachother, the Lord, and showing that love and grace to others around you, especially to precious little Ella, will be more helpful than any tidbit of knowledge you picked up in a baby book or prenatal class…This new little life is a gift…cherish her as you do eachother!!! XOXO
