I have been waiting for a few weeks now to be able to share this session. You may remember this family, they won the Instagram Giveaway last year. Well, during their session we did a few "extra" shots... You see, at the time, the M Family had just found out they were expecting their 2nd baby! They wanted to have the pictures printed and framed so that they could wrap them up and give them to their family's on Christmas Day. What an announcement! And what a gift to each of their families!
This part of the session was really fun. Jeremiah, who is 3 years old, is a smart little kid. No, really, this kid is ridiculously smart! So we had to be really careful how we did this part of the session, because Jeremiah didn't yet know that he was going to have a new baby brother/sister - and he didn't know because he would for sure tell his grandparents and spoil the Christmas Surprise! So when Roseanna brought the baby shoes and sonogram print out he asked about them, and we told him that the little shoes were his (which they were) and he said the sonogram print looked like a fake bubble - so we rolled with it! Whenever I wanted him to hold the sonogram or look at it I would just refer to "the fake bubble" and it worked perfectly :-)
Roseanna, Steven and Jeremiah - congratulations! I am SO happy for you, and I can't wait to meet Baby M #2 (aka "fake bubble")! Thank you so much for trusting me with such special memories and letting me be part of that amazing surprise for your families. Hugs! - Brenda
