It started off as a beautiful spring day in March. The sun was warm and the plants were just starting to finally come out of hibernation. We had planned a couple hours of shooting, to start off in the baby’s room then head outside to a wooded area to match the woodsy theme in the nursery. Every moment he didn’t leave her side, making sure she had water, making sure she wasn’t too tired to stand, making she sure she was comfortable, because of course she was so precious to him. We were running late and the sun quickly began to fade, we made our way outside and had a few hold ups along the way. Thank you Officer for the speeding ticket, just what I wanted. But we finally made it to a couple of fields a few miles away. We jumped out of the car and it hit us like a ton of bricks–winter. Wait, where did this come from, it was high sixties this afternoon. And now? Now, it seemed like high thirties.
I asked Melissa if she still wanted to do it, and she said that she would be fine, IN A SLEEVELESS DRESS. We made our way over and I started shoot. Think warm thoughts, act like you’re sweating it’s so hot I kept telling them, you know, as if that helps. She had goosebumps all over, and all he could do was be by her side. He would gently press his face against her hair line and whisper into her ear, rubbing back and belly to warm her up as much as possible. And the whole time as I was shooting he was there beside her making sure she was comfortable, making sure she was ok, because of course she was carrying something so precious to them.
Melissa and Bobby, it’s always a joy to see you guys and your growing family! I can’t wait to meet your new baby boy, and I know you two are going to make amazing parents! Let’s plan our next shoot in eighty degree weather, no? xo
Melissa decorated the nursery herself, and it came out absolutely adorable.
Warm, happy thoughts, of course.
Bobby is so sweet with Melissa, and is going to be a great father, I’m sure.
Like, really, Melissa?! I hope I look this good when I’m pregnant.
