It’s moments like these that I am so very thankful for what I do. Creating memories for others gives me such joy in my chosen path, but creating memories for my family is seriously priceless. I can’t thank God enough for this little boy and the two people responsible for bringing him to us. I can honestly say that Grady is the light in all of our lives. The joy he shares with us is beyond every descriptive word I can think of. And now, the thought that we will have another little boy, so soon, blessing us with his life brings me such immense joy – and I’m only Aunt BB. I just can not wait. Will he be like Grady – crazy, loving, smart, a little bit weird – busy, talkative, inquisitive, or stubborn — will he have red hair and bright blue eyes? Or will he be completely different but still so special in his own way. But I promise you one thing, he will have the same pure joy just like his big brother Grady.
For Karissa’s maternity pictures, I wanted to incorporate Grady as much as we could. Grady is just as excited for baby brother as his parents are and I believe he really understands that there is a baby in mommy’s tummy and will be coming home soon. For the first part of her shoot, we played and jumped around on her bed – letting Grady do things he probably isn’t usually allowed to do. However being at home, cuddling in bed with Grady alone, I thought would be really special memories for them to cherish.
The above picture is one of my favorites pictures of all time. I hope they cherish it always.
I’ll be posting the second part of their shoot soon!
