Two years ago this month, I did a mini session with Leslie and Cole. Leslie arranged the shoot with her, then 7 year old boy, as a surprise for her husband.

A few months ago, I received a call from Andre, Leslie’s husband, saying “I’m cooking up a surprise, and hoping you can be a part of it.” It turns out that Andre and Leslie are pregnant with their second child. Andre wanted to create a day to celebrate Leslie in her maternal beauty, full of hair, makeup, a day off of work, and a maternity photo shoot. I jumped at the chance to be a part of this super fun project. We did the shoot last week, Leslie telling me that she cried when Andre revealed the surprise. Tears of happiness, for sure. She’s so lovely, and made the perfect subject for the shoot. Many, many congratulations Leslie, Andre and Cole! I cannot wait to meet your new addition.
