Vanessa and I worked together when she became pregnant with her first child. I remember watching how beautifully she carried him up until the day he arrived and how I hoped that pregnancy would look that good on me, which it did not! Not only does she have the most incredibly thick and wavy hair that I will always be envious of, but she’s also the kind of person that brings a breath of fresh air to any room. Her laugh is always genuine and she has to be one of the most kind and patient people I’ve ever met. I have never, ever heard her say anything that wasn’t positive, which tells me how lucky her children will be to have their mother as an example to look up to.
I knew that I always wanted to remain friends with Vanessa even after we both moved on to new jobs, which is why I was so thrilled when I heard that another baby was on the way; it was the perfect opportunity to capture such a beautiful time of her life.
I had so much fun with the whole family that I nearly lost track of time! And I would like to give another high-five to the little man because he really hung in there until the very end. It took him almost no time to warm up to the lens and start photo bombing with his big grin. So much fun.
