Christa… otherwise known as the best friend that I met so much later in life, joined by a passion of photography and the quirk of sharing a name. She’s the ying to my creative yang, and when she told me she was pregnant months ago, we started planning all these amazing non-traditional maternity session ideas.
What really happens in the lives of two busy photographers though? All those wonderful and and crazy ideas went out the window when we realized in our collective schedules she was nearly full term, and we hadn’t done a thing! Instead, we wound up getting together just six days before her little man made his early arrival into the world and spending a grand total of 7 minutes in the woods documenting her beautiful belly.
I love her. Did I mention that? Isn’t her smile so stinking cute? As I was editing these pictures, I swear I can hear her contagious laugh. C & J – so happy for you guys… from long nights in the tent, concerts together, and just a whole lot of strangely crossed lives (another weird one… Christa and her husband happened to go to the same college my husband did, years apart)…. to welcoming your little guy into the world. I am so incredibly thrilled for you.
