I normally don’t shoot maternity pictures anymore… but Arielle is a very close friend of mine, and I knew she’d be the most adorable pregnant girl ever.
Matt and I have known Arielle & Richard for a couple years now and we love them to pieces.
They love to fish with us, hangout, watch movies, go to amusement parks, road trip, go wakeboarding, and so much more.
I met them after they called to meet with me about shooting their wedding. I was a wreck when they came to my house to meet me. I can’t really remember what happened… either I just pulled a Tracy and forgot about the meeting somehow, or I made up an excuse that my calender wasn’t working… or maybe I blamed it on my poor studio manager, Steph. Either way, they sat there with me while I looked like a frazzled hobo, and proceeded to book me for their big day. I was a little surprised, but soooo grateful. I knew we’d become great friends, and I am so thankful for them.
Arielle is due this September and I cannot wait to meet their little girl. She is by far the biggest push I have to start a family of my own… Matt is totally on board.
Once your friends start having kids, something just triggers in you… your ovaries start screaming out “You need a baby! Now!”… woah… calm down ovaries… it’s a big decision.
But, thanks to these two… we are thinking about it more and more.
We shot their maternity shoot out at Wildflower Gardens, my favorite wedding venue! Arielle works there, and the owner,
Janine is a great friend of mine. So I was very lucky to have a such an amazing location to shoot at.
Enjoy your sneak peek, you two!! Love you guys!!!
