Meet Jojo and Heidi. Their engagement session turned to a maternity session once they found out they were pregnant and they’d be due with a baby right around their 2010 summer wedding date. So they pushed the date out a year. That is how it goes with babies. Their timeline. Their schedule. Those babies train us up from the very beginning…. it’s all about the them. Heidi is a gorgeous and glowing mother to be. It was so fun to see her in full bloom as last time I saw her was eight months ago! We had a beautiful session up at the property.
Chris and Lisa met through the exclusive sister company of Match.com. He works for PBS making documentary series and she is a middle school teacher. The two are so so so much fun! I knew they were for me when they disclosed they love to take awkward prom style photos wherever they travel to and were hoping they could do a few for the engagement session. They are a fun loving couple and madly in love. They were so much fun to work with… did I already say that?! We went up to the property where they hammed it up for the camera with awkward young love poses and cheesy high school prom photo poses, in addition to some sweet. honest. in-love ones. I told Lisa, I’ve never laughed out loud by myself while editing photos, but when I got to the series of them on the tire swing I had such a big laugh and perma smile going. Not only did she get her foot stuck, but then Chris was being wild in the background like a four year old, while Lisa tried to look grumpy about it all for a staged photo, but in all reality, he was too funny for either of us to keep a straight face about it all. Ahhhhh…. so fun. Anyway, Here they are rocking cowboy boots and all.
These two have a long history of awkward love poses, with an emphasis on cheesy prom poses. Here is one from the day. So cheesy. So fun.
Mad air. Well done Chris!
The Chris show…. can you tell he works in the entertainment industry?
Here are a few more from Shera’s session. She feared the fog would roll in if we shot in Santa Cruz, so we shot up at the summit. She made a good call as the fog was rolling into town just as I was leaving to meet them. It made for some dramatic senic shots from up in the mountains though. Thanks so much for coming out guys! I had a great time watching you to savor each other before the little one comes.
Nate and Shera York trekked up to my grandpa’s property for a maternity session. She contacted me last week and is due in two. Glad we could squeeze you two in Shera! We had the most incredible sunset with fog pouring in over all the mountains. It was gorgeous and so were they… So in love after nine years. Congrats on your new little girl. Here are a few sneek peeks until I get through them all. Enjoy!
Shera you are beautiful.
That’s right… she’s having twins!
I roped Jenee into a mini maternity session on Memorial Day when she came to BBQ with us at the property. They are already approved for adopting two babies from Colombia (which is now on hold), so I’m not certain if she’ll ever be preggers again after twins plus two (pretty certain- cough)?! Can’t wait to meet the little ones. It’s a bonus that twins come early… cause they have tons of friends and family dying to meet ‘em!
She’s so beautiful pregnant.
Barefoot. Pregnant. Before she’s in the kitchen. She does it all boys…
Couldn’t resist posting this one. We really were shootin’ cans and quail up there that day. Her brothers a Marine who has served 3 tours!! Ooo-rah. It’s in her genes.
