Photographing Jamie’s maternity session was such a blast. Not only is she gorgeous and obviously very photogenic, but I was also able to meet her son, Rhys and her best friend Jessica. (Off topic side note, I’m a Jessica and my best friend is a Jaymie!) Jessica video taped a portion of the session which her and Jamie shared on their video blog that I posted on my Facebook page last week. We started our session with some photographs of Jamie and Rhys who is such a sweet kid. I wanted to get some images of Rhys hugging and resting his head on his Momma’s belly but before I had the chance to show or tell him what I wanted him to do, he did it! It was such a cute moment.
Jamie is expecting twins (a boy and a girl!) and if you watch Episode 1 on her video blog, you know why these babies are a blessing. It is times like these that truly make you realize why it is so important to have photographs of your family to not only have for yourself, but to also pass down from generation to generation. Photographs are one of the only visually tangible memories that you will have to look back on when people you love are not here anymore. Jamie, you are such a strong person and I am honored to have had the chance to meet and photograph you. I hope we can work together again soon!
