Hey friends! Remember my homecoming clients from a few months ago?? Well, the cat is out of the bag and I am SO excited to finally share their adorable pregnancy announcement story!!
When Heaven initially messaged me with, "Heyyy Jessica I've got something I'm hoping you can help me out with!" I confess I got a little nervous. All photographers do, when past clients come back with a message like that. You start thinking, "Oh, shoot, did they lose their disc?? Do they want something re-edited? WHAT IS WRONG?"
Sad, but true. We photographers are neurotic like that...No reflection on the clients themselves; in fact, Heaven is one of my absolute favorites! We just want our clients to be happy and usually after a gallery is delivered, as the old saying goes, "No news is good news." But...when she replied with a cell phone pic of her and hubby and a positive pregnancy test, I felt like I could fly!! They were able to get pregnant pretty much as soon as he returned from deployment and wanted me to take announcement photos to surprise friends and family! She had it all planned out...she wanted to break the news on Valentine's Day and wanted "not the typical" announcement pictures. To be specific, she wanted to use their personal love story of "high school sweethearts" as a theme. Pinterest pictures were tossed around and I found a local high school that was open-air (and the administration was amenable).
I LOVED this adorable session! These two lovebirds met in high school track and have already been through a long deployment and cross-country move during their marriage. I am so excited to have been invited along to help celebrate the next chapter of their story!
