It is amazing how quickly time passes when you aren’t the one expecting. Here’s the perfect example. I feel like my sister’s pregnancy flew by. Perhaps if she lived closer and I could see her more often I would have thought differently. It feels only like a few weeks ago that I created her maternity portraits. Yet here I am sharing my nephew’s first portraits with you. It’s even crazier to think that he’s already six weeks old! I have to share with you how my sister fooled me, lied actually, about being pregnant. My family went to visit her and my brother-in-law last spring and I noticed that my sister looked rough. I know that sounds really bad, but my sister has always been the princess. If there is one of the girls in the house that always liked to primp up, it was this sister. She is the fashionista so for me to see her looking kind of not all put together was odd. She told me she was getting over a cold so I just brushed it off. Then our conversation turned into baby talk and I nosily (like any big sister would) asked her, “you aren’t pregnant, are you?” She assured me she wasn’t. Lie! On our drive home I told my husband that I would not be surprised if my sister announced on Mother’s Day that she was expecting. So on Mother’s Day we all gathered at my parents to love on our mom. My mom opened her present from my sister and it was a framed ultrasound photo, but when she pulled it out of the bag the frame was facing away from my mom and I had the perfect view to see what it was. You can imagine the uproar and giddy yelling that ensued. My mom was still clueless and had no idea why I was jumping up and down and my baby sister was hugging my PREGNANT sister. I said it was a girl and was very much wrong. Haha!
Meet my nephew, Josiah…don’t let his peaceful, sleepy face fool you. I had to work and sweat to create these. He is clearly related to my children. I still love him!
I like to get to know expecting mother’s wanting newborn photos created of their babies. It is always best to plan most of the details prior to baby’s arrival with the only thing left to do is wait for baby to be born to set the date and time of the photo session. If you are expecting, I’d love to chat with you about how we can create newborn art of your precious little one. Call or email me: 610-334-6027 | firstname.lastname@example.org
