Amy and Ken, as you may remember were married back in February. I was absolutely thrilled for them when, at a later wedding where Ken and Amy were guests, and they began inquiring about whether I do maternity pictures. I was instructed to keep things hush-hushed, since they’d only just found out themselves…and this was pretty tough for me to do, because I knew that the child brought into the world by Amy and Ken would be a very special one.
Amy and I spoke on the phone, and we had decided to do her maternity photos and after Christmas. But we waited about a day too long because Amy starting feeling the beginning of labor, and wasn’t feeling up to the belly pictures. I completely understood, having labored twice myself, and told her and Ken to give me a call when that baby made his appearance. I was thrilled to get the text letting me know that baby Joshua had made his appearance, and shocked and proud that tiny little Amy had brought a 7lb 15oz baby into the world! Atta girl!
Ken texted me and let me know that they wanted pictures to be done as soon as possible. I was thrilled when he said they wanted to do the pictures as soon as they got home from the hospital…as in, they got home around 12:30, and I arrived around 2. I was so excited, because it’s just remarkable how much babies change in their first few days of life. I was soooo excited to meet Joshua, and preserve his sweet newbornness (it’s a technical term) for his parents.
Amy and Ken, congratulations! What a year full of blessings you have had… and I feel blessed and grateful to have been able to capture some of your most cherished moments.
