For years Jeremy has been asking Jessica for a baby. And it was usually done playfully. (At least in my company.) I’ve heard “Give me a baby, woman!” at least a dozen times and have even seen him will her midsection to “make it a boy.” Who knows if these were legitimate requests or if they were just said in jest, but what I do know is that his wishes have come true and a baby’s been brewing for quite some time.
We had talked about doing a maternity session a couple of times, but with it being cold and getting dark early, nothing was really planned. Until Jessica emailed me one day and told me she wanted to do it, she wanted maternity photos – was there a chance to meet up that following weekend. Her wish was my command. A time was set and then I started to worry.
I usually recommend expecting mothers to be about 8 months along (or anywhere between 28-34 weeks), but Jessica was sitting pretty at 38 weeks. I was concerned if she’d be uncomfortable, that she’d be worried about how she looked and so on. I have no idea why I worried though, because none of that was even a bother when I showed up at their home. Jessica’s belly was as big as could be, perfectly round, she wore a big smile and was absolutely beautiful.
And with eyes like his, Jeremy wasn’t so bad either. ;)
Isn’t she just gorgeous?
Gracie and Zoe had to get a photo too. Crazy doggins.
Jessica’s vision: wide shot of the nursery. I just love how it turned out.
And I took advantage of her being stuck in that chair.
If you have ever met these two people, you’d know that they are hard to compare to. I’m so happy to call Jessica and Jeremy friends and always look forward to spending time with them as it usually includes lots of laughter. The only thing I would change is for them to tell me what the gender of the baby is. Because baby is still not here! I have no idea how they’ve stayed so patient… or why that baby isn’t budging… but I can’t wait to Baby Gray!
