Meeting amazing people can sometimes be hard. But when you do AMAZING weddings you get the chance to meet some really amazing people. I haven’t even blogged Heather + Randy’s wedding yet (it will be happening soon! i find weddings DAUNTING to blog but now that i have BLOG STOMP dear god it will happen much sooner than i expected) it was magical. And then I was like HEY i know these people……. both Ali and Jake were in the wedding party and I kept oddly thinking I knew them (I actually learned this BEFORE the wedding day since I had the fun chance to capture Heathers bachelorette party! so no i wasn’t that awkward about it the day of… I mean maybe I was….Eh I probably was awkward about SOMETHING :))
Flash back to a few years of Pumpkin Smash at the farm (we do this every year after the farm closes….stay tuned for more on that in the future I have a feeling some epic photos will be happening this year) and I realize they have been coming to this for awhile now. Thanks to Kyle + Emma my psuedo family (not blood but who cares! grew up w/ Kyle) for being friends with these two and Heather + Randy for bringing them back into my life in even more magical ways.
So obviously when Ali is like HEY do you do maternity photos? I am like NOT YET! LETS DO IT!!!!!!! And agreed to let me work my magic on them to welcome their new little guy. This hardly touches on the images I took since many of them ARE SUPER SECRET (aka: they reveal the growing dudes name! we are keeping that a secret!) so this is all I can share (for now) CANNOT wait to meet little guy. Sadly they likely won’t be at the smash this year since Mr. Dude is due right before Halloween! SADNESS but this just means we have to hang out more mmmk?
Basically what I learned from this session are 2 things 1) i love these three (four?) even more than i thought i could 2) i love taking photos of pregnancy. Like how freaking gorgeous the whole growing a human thing is. I DIE! Love it so much!!! Couldn’t be more excited to watch this family grow!!!!
