the night before this session brandi took to the dance floor at her sister robin’s wedding and I turned to see her jumping up and down with the rest of the guests – I’m not gonna lie, I went over to her and put my hands on her shoulders “we’ve got to make it until tomorrow without this baby being born” I said with a wink and a smile and fortunately, brandi and will’s first child stayed put – still is as a matter of fact. today is the actual due date and according to brandi this morning, baby’s debut is not imminent :) I photographed brandi and will’s wedding almost 2 years ago and it was one of my favorite weddings ever! their venue, their friends and family and most decidedly the two of them made it a day to remember. I also made a friend at their wedding – will’s cousin trinity wheeler is an amazing photographer and we exchanged info that night. we’ve kept in touch via email and by phone since but this past february we both happened to be in vegas for WPPI. we got together one evening and while having dinner, trinity suddenly said “oh! you  know brandi and will are expecting right?!”  no I didn’t but I contacted brandi the next day. the proximity of her due date to robin’s wedding didn’t escape me so when nailing down a day to shoot their maternity session, the day after seemed like a great choice. brandi is always gorgeous,  but as a expectant mother she just glowingly beautiful – proud papa will isn’t too shabby either :)

I am so happy for you and I can’t wait to meet the baby – so exciting! I hope to see all 3 of you SOON! xo
