So I have been keeping a secret a kind of big secret. My sister was pregnant with her 5th little cutie. What makes her story a special one that she is doing this while her husband is on the other side of the world serving our country. Some might call her crazy I may have a couple of times but she is also a superhero. All military spouses are superheros. They may not be the ones fighting in the wars but they are serving our country right here by holding down the fort taking care of the family making sure that everything goes on while their other half is not there. Christina is doing all this while growing my 12th Niece. That is right I have 6 nephews and now I have 6 nieces. She did a road trip this summer with my parents and came out to visit my family and while they were out here we did a quick session down by the river. Here are a few of my favorites from the session! We also did some pictures for my niece Paige’s 8th birthday!
Let me start off by saying everything about this session was perfect, the locations were perfect, the sunrise was perfect, and more importantly the mama-to-be was perfect and glowing. This is the first non four legged baby for Amanda and Brett and they are so excited. I have known Amanda since she was in grade school. She graduated in my little brothers class we attended the same church and participated in the same youth group. She did Drama with my sister was a cheerleader and an all around fun person which she most definitely still is. She found herself the perfect match in her husband as he seems just as fun loving as Amanda.
I took my tiny little assistant and traveled up to Jacksonville while my boys had a boys day. I was very much looking forward to doing a sunrise session as they are my favorite to watch and sometimes it is so hard to get up early enough to see them. I don’t feel like it took much convincing to get Amanda and Brett onboard with the idea. We went to 2 different beaches Little Talbot and Big Talbot, one which was perfect for catching the sunrise. The other had some pretty awesome drift wood, I wish that Big Talbot beach was closer to Orlando because I would highly suggest it for many different sessions. Amanda and Brett brought along their four legged children Gizmo and Montie and be braved the chilly morning for what turned out to be one of my favorite sessions so far. Amanda was 33 weeks pregnant, with the cutest baby bump. She is definitely all baby. I can not wait to see pictures and hopefully get to meet their sweet little girl after she makes her presence known (is it May yet 😉 ). I can tell she is one very loved little girl already!
I had trouble narrowing down the pictures I wanted to spotlight so I did a lot Enjoy!!!!
