Meet Lisa and Jimmy. Lisa and I use to work together. Because of our age, and the fact that we are both married, our patients would often drill us on why we didn’t have kids. To which we both replied, we do. We have fur kids! Then, we would typically follow up with some joke like, well we can legally cage our dogs, but that’s frowned upon with children. We also worked with a staff of almost all women and most of them had children. That was also entertaining, because we heard lots of birth stories, gross things in diapers, sleepless nights because of vomiting, etc. Now, all those gross stories were always followed up with, but motherhood is the best, really. There was never a dull moment at the clinic and Lisa and I always had each other’s backs!
Sadly, when she became pregnant, we no longer worked together. She’s an avid blogger herself, so I did keep up on her changes, emotions, and funny stories. It’s always weird when you go from seeing someone everyday, to not at all. So, I was super excited to see her for this photo session. We had originally planned for a fall session at an apple orchard. Unfortunately, it rained the day we met, so we ended up at the Franklin Park Conservatory. Lisa looked fantastic! She had the cutest little baby bump. You didn’t even know she was pregnant until she turned around. I have to give her lots of credit for working out during her entire pregnancy. She continued to run and do her hip hop fitness classes the entire time. She was a prego rockstar!
They had decided to not find out the sex of the baby, hence the name “Baby Boo.” Six months ago today, Lisa delivered a beautiful baby BOY! I haven’t met the little guy in person yet, but like I said, she’s a blogger, so I’ve kept up on his life. Hopefully, we can meet to capture his 6 month milestone!
Life is a series of thousands of tiny miracles. I’m just proud to be a small piece in this one 🙂 Happy 6 month birthday baby James and happy first Father’s Day to Jimmy!
