My Fiancé, Jennifer, and I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for some of our wonderful friends, Justin and Christa. They scheduled the photo shoot without us knowing the real reason for it. "Just because" photo shoots are wonderful for couples to document their love, but there was more going on...
A few days before the shoot, Christa told us what they had up their sleeve. The plan was to use the photos for a birth announcement! We loved every moment of our time together, and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out!
For the first location, we chose a wooded lot right by the Monroe, NC, airport [just 20-30 minutes south of Charlotte]. It was quiet, and just the perfect spot with great lighting.
Their dog, Kona, was a bundle of energy! It was a fun challenge to get her to cooperate. They are a family of four!
We then moved just down the road to a field. Kona loved running around! She was a happy girl that day.
Christa was also such a trooper - it was pretty cold, and she was in thorns! You would never know! We loved the idea of the sign and balloons. Justin found this quote online, and Jennifer quickly wrote the text on it when we arrived.
Christa - we are all excited to see you grow with baby O'Lear. You will make such a fantastic Mom!
Justin - seeing your excitement for baby O'Lear is something very special. We know that you will take great care of Christa throughout the pregnancy, and you are going to make a wonderful Dad.
Thank you so much for allowing us to document this special time of your lives. It was such an honor, and we loved it. You both were so easy to work with, and your joy was so precious.
Blessings as you prepare for parenthood!
