So I get a call from someone who just happened to stumble upon my blog in an internet search for newborn photographers… When she saw my picture in the about me section, she said, “I know her!!” and called me right away.
Jen and I go way back. I haven’t seen her in about 15 years or so, but once upon she was a friend of my brother so I’ve known her since she was a little high school girl sitting shotgun in my brother’s car. I was in college at the time, so I didn’t get to know her closely, but I always liked her and thought she was a good kid.
Well, she’s not a kid anymore. In fact, now she’s got her own kid which makes me feel pretty ancient. I was so happy to have her hire me to photograph newborn images of her son, Jackson.
He was so good. I mean, this kid slept and let me move him around like crazy. He didn’t always stay where I wanted him (he is a strong one!), but I don’t think he made a peep the whole time. He did make a poop though. On me. Yeah, it’s a job hazard. ;)
I won’t make you read anymore. Here is beautiful Jackson…
I love this mommy and baby shot. Make me all sappy for my own boy!
This is heaven.
and a last parting shot…
Thanks for reaching out Jennifer! It was great seeing you again after all these years!
