One fateful day in March of 2010 I wound through the outrageous WPPI crowd and into one of the smaller ballrooms to hear my photographer heroes, Justin and Mary, speak. As I sat there doodling in my notebook waiting for the session to start I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation of the girls sitting next to me, and since there’s not a reserved bone in my body I decided to jump in! Little did I know I’d grow to love and admire these girls, as friends and photographers! That day I met Jenny Solar (who’s Happy Family Movement you must check out) and Echo and Jaylene from Toledo, Ohio!
We kept in touch, so naturally when Echo and her husband Brad announced that they were expecting I was thrilled for them. And when they asked me to photograph their maternity session? honored and overjoyed! Sooo last weekend Josue and I trekked up to Dayton where they now live and enjoyed two fun-filled days with the Dearsmans and the baby on the way! Here’s a little sneak peek of our session…sooo many more to come!
