I met this gorgeous family last summer when Jonah was just over a year old. I was elated when Lindsay contacted me to say that they were expecting another baby and wanted to do a First Year Photo Story with me. I was then extremely jealous when I showed up to the maternity session and saw how flipping GORGEOUS Lindsay was 4 weeks from her delivery date. Serious. I’d be pregnant all the time if I looked this fabulous this late in my last trimester.
We kicked off our session early at Jeffrey Mansion in Bexley. Julian and Lindsay actually had their engagement photos taken there so it was fun to go back with Jonah and baby number 2 on the way for a family session. Jeffrey Mansion is always crawling with people and photographers. I thought I was brilliant for suggesting that we go early in the morning in the middle of the week. It will be empty! When I pulled in I saw the parking lot jammed…summer camp. We made it work.
Lindsay…this is my favorite! You are absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I love how happy you look, I love the completely adorable expression on sweet Jonah’s face and I love how Julian is laughing. This, to me, is perfection.
Jonah…I love the hat, man. You are one cool big brother.
His red Toms…I die! You guys are seriously the cutest.
And the addition of this very lucky little girl will make your family photo even more presh. I can’t wait to snuggle her!!
Really Lindsay!!! You. Are. Beautiful.
This is another favorite of mine. Daddy’s make the best jungle gyms.
There is something so magical about bubbles. Bubbles can buy me at least 15 more minutes of smiles. 😉
And SURPRISE!!! Yesterday I got a text from Lindsay announcing that their beauty had arrived!!! Welcome to the world baby Tessa!! I can’t wait to meet you!!! I’m so happy for your family. And I’m SO happy we did these maternity photos when we did. Phew! Hope you are all enjoying the baby gazing. Mazel!! xoxo
