Jenessa contacted me several months ago and asked if I could take her maternity pictures in Moscow this summer. I was so excited for our session and had been thinking of different places we could have the shoot. Little did I know that we would be moving to Boise just weeks before our shoot. I didn’t think it was going to work out. But we rearranged the date, and we made it happen. And I’m so very glad we did.
When I was pregnant, I didn’t really get it. Sam was a big surprise, and I didn’t feel ready. I was scared and nervous. And I was so sick for the first 26 weeks of my pregnancy. I really didn’t grasp that those months were a gift. It wasn’t until I first held my son in my arms and felt that intense, crazy, all-consuming love that I really appreciated my pregnancy. I look back on my pregnancy and regret not appreciating the magical time.
Jenessa, on the other hand, really does get it. She’s so excited to be a mom, and it shows. She’s just glows. Her little boy is going to be overwhelmed with love.
