adorable pregnancy announcement

Surprise Baby Announcement {Southlake Tx Photographer}

Jan 21, 2015

I am so excited that I can finally share these images! I had the honor of capturing one of the most special moments in a couple’s life. That moment when you stop being just husband and wife and become a family of 3! I met Camille before her wedding when I shot a pre-wedding session for her. During that session we talked about all the fun ideas I had for future sessions and it included a fun and creative way to tell your husband you are pregnant. So when she texted me with the line “remember that idea you had….” I almost couldn’t contain my excitement. We immediately set-up a session under the rouse of taking pictures for their first Christmas card together 🙂

About half way through the session, after what probably seemed like eternity for Camille, we got to the fun part. I asked them to “try something new” for me and gave each of them a piece of paper and a maker with the task of writing a sweet note to the other person. He wrote what can only be described as a short essay, while her message was simple “We are Having a Baby!”

I placed them back to back, counted to 3 and waited for the reaction. It was the most perfect reaction! I am so excited for this adorable couple and can’t wait to capture more priceless moments in their life.

        What an absolutely priceless set of memorable photographs!!! You know, the child she’s carrying will cherish it the most. Children always want to know about themselves before their own memory kicks into gear..somewhere around 5-6 yrs old. I have an 11 and 15 yr old & they still LOVE to hear fun stories of when I was pregnant. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE PHOTOS & of course, the guard dogs are too precious
