I love when families come up with creative ways to learn the gender of their new baby. The W family came to see me for just that. It was a gorgeous evening here in Metro Atlanta and they were so excited to find out- boy or girl? They each wore bandannas indicating their guesses and I took a peek at the ultrasound that was in a sealed envelope before we let the paint fly. There’s just something I love about capturing the real, raw emotion of the moment! It’s a girl!
Sometimes sessions don’t go as planned. Weather doesn’t always cooperate. Preferred locations don’t work out and we have to go with plan B. Sometimes, things work out better than anyone could have imagined! Look how big this little one is getting. It truly is bittersweet to watch her grow. Slow down miss Piper!
There’s this boy. He was an unexpected blessing to an incredible family. He keeps them on their toes. He’s sweet, and smart, and silly. And he’s growing up. His mama called because she loves his curls, but it’s time for his very first haircut. Mama’s know that over the course of ten minutes in the chair, your “baby” is no more, and a big boy emerges, ready to take on the world. It’s bittersweet, really. So Mr. Maverick and his amazing mama came to see me before those locks are trimmed. We did some of his and his mama too- because he may outgrow her lap, but this age NEEDS to be frozen in time. Forever.
