Have you ever met a person and instantly connected? I mean, if you are able to read this I hope by this point in your life it has happened AT LEAST once, if not many more times.
Meet Ben & Em.
One of my couples that helped me create this business.
If I remember correctly, their wedding was one of my very first “Ah-Ha” moments in the wedding industry. Back that up, their engagement session.
I remember so vividly meeting this beautiful bride to be at a quaint coffee shop in my home town. We chatted about how I ran my business, and more importantly, weddings. Upon leaving the coffee shop she so politely, with her big beautiful smile said, ” You can call me Em, most people who know me call me Em, and nothing else”. I think that was the spark. We had connected at that very moment. From there on out was an adorable fall engagement session followed by their PERFECTLY crafted wedding day. The exact amount of color on the leaves. The crisp cool air was chilly but not freezing. The sun peeked out but knew I love my overcast days for shooting weddings. It truly was one for the books.
In the following years to come we have kept up on a yearly basis of pictures. This past winter they told me they had “some news” I could only hope the words that were about to roll off their tongue was ” We are going to have a baby” …. and I was SO RIGHT. Pretty sure I got goosebumps, not from the snowflakes landing on my vest, but because these two, you see these two were about to be three.
Now do you know anybody who you feel like deserves that title of a parent SO STINKING MUCH? Ding, Ding, Ding. That is what I thought about this couple. I was so excited, I remember thinking each time I saw her email pop up before this ” Oooh, maybe they have pregnancy news for me”. I don’t know if I can put my finger on what draws me to them, or why I feel so empowered by being with them, what I did know is they were going to AMAZING …. AH-MAZING parents someday, and that someday was FINALLY almost here.
So now I am beyond proud to introduce Miss. Beatrice Bradley Jo to you. I was lucky enough to meet her last Monday. Steal some snuggles. Catch up with my beloved couple, and watch them bask in the revelation that they were now parents. They created this BEAUTY. I can only imagine the impact she will have on this world.
