In 2012, I photographed James & Kelsie’s wedding and now seven years later, they’re having a girl!
I was so excited to meet up with them, first because I got to see them! And second, because I knew they would bring the CUTEST props! So let’s start with this Then & Now shot because DANG! They got even cuter! How is that possible?
When we decided to use the balloons, I grabbed the first one. “Girl.” I said. “What does this other one say?” Baby. And my brain goes, “Okay, sure, Girl Baby, that makes sense.” James, being the gracious guy he is, gave me a second and then goes “Baby Girl.” Definitely a “Duh” moment!
James and Kelsie, congratulations! I’m so excited to meet Baby Lennon and to see you at seven months! xo

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
