Where should I begin this post? well . . . I met Kristi in 2006 when we were both training for our first marathon. After that first race we were hooked and continued our running adventures as we traveled to quite a few places around the US for marathons or half marathons. Really miss those days, even if they required a 26.2 mile run. When I started my business 3 years ago, Kristi just had her first baby, Grace. She was only about 6 months old when I started “practicing” on her. She was my first human test subject, for which I will always be grateful. Anywho, lots of time and lots of sessions later, Grace is 3 years old now and about to have a baby sister, Gabrielle, next month. Before Gabbie makes an appearance a maternity session was definitely in order. I had a specific look in mind for Kristi and to ensure I was going to get what I wanted, I headed out to the thrift store in search of the perfect outfit for her. What I found was this amazing dress and hat for $6 and $.50 respectively. But it wasn’t until Kristi put the dress on and we headed out to the field that I realized that I got what I was after. My friend turned into a glowing gorgeous Hawaiian goddess and I was lucky enough to have her in front of my lens.
We even got some shots with Gracie as well as Barney. You might not recognize Barney without his bunny ears and Easter basket but I assure you it is the same dog. ENJOY!
