While there are plenty of things that I love about being a photographer, hands down my favorite thing is being able to capture my clients as they go through the different stages of their lives.
There is just something so extra special about being entrusted again and again with capturing those extra special memories for clients. I get to be involved in their lives in a unique way, and watch their story unfold, and I absolutely love it! This session in particular is one that had me screaming with excitement when Kylie reached out to schedule it!
I have had the absolute joy of knowing Kylie and Ross and capturing their time together for several years now, starting when they were a fun couple dating and in love, then engaged, followed by their beautiful wedding day. I don't think that I could have been more excited when I got the news that these two love birds were expecting a little bundle of joy all their own! Being able to photograph these two for their pregnancy announcement may very well be my favorite time with them yet! They pulled out all the stops to make this session the most fun one of the season! I don't think I stopped laughing the entire time we were shooting!
Kylie and Ross enjoy the Office a great deal and had the most adorable matching shirts and onesie for their babe to be to give a nod to the show. Now don't crucify me, but I have never watched a single episode of the Office, so I really can't give much comment to their outfits beyond that other than I thought they were cute. What I did really love though, was their choice to have a completely fun and quirky pumpkin head part to their session! Not only did Kylie carve pumpkins that were a perfect match for each of them, she even made a little baby one complete with a pacifier! We chose to have the shoot at Pap's Pumpkin Patch to take advantage of the most perfect setting, and while we may have gotten some interesting looks from other visitors there, a few people caught on to what the shoot was all about and had a good laugh and congratulations for this sweet couple.
If there is one thing that I am certain of, it is that Kylie and Ross's little one is going to be thoroughly loved, and so very lucky to have parents that are as fun and full of life as Kylie and Ross are! I can just see it already, the three of them dressing up for Halloween in coordinating costumes, embracing life to the fullest and dancing like nobody is watching. These two will be the parents that are fun, supportive, and shower their little one in love. The world could use more parents like Kylie and Ross!
Kylie and Ross, I am so thankful that you allowed me to be a part of yet another wonderful milestone for the two of you! I am so incredibly happy for you and can't wait to meet your little one and see how great parenthood fits you two!
