"We have something to tell you!"
A few weeks ago, I told you about some friends that I did a shoot for at Cambell's covered bridge. Well, turns out there is a LOT more to that story!
Earlier that Monday, Liz called me and asked if I could meet them to take some pictures that weekend. I told her that I was free and that I would love to. It was then that she told me the reason why she wanted pictures....
Turns out she had some big news and wanted to surprise her husband, Josh, with it and for me to capture it all. You see, they had been trying for a while to have a baby, but things just weren't working. After they finally got to the point to where they didn't know what to do next, they left it all in God's hands. It was that very month that she found out she was pregnant!
The goal of the session was to make it seem like a normal couples shoot... a few by the river, a couple by the bridge, etc. Then after a while, she wanted them to write a note to each other and stand back to back. On the count of 3, they would turn around and read each other note's. Except she had a baby's onesie that read "COMING SOON!"
That day went exactly as planned. Josh never had any clue about the news that was about to hit him. But the look on his face was priceless when he found out.
I've said it before , but it's days like this that remind me why I love photography so much.
