Wow I have so much love for these 2, soon-to-be 3! I kind of owe it to Jake + V for getting me back into photography and even thinking about starting my own business! Here's what happened:
V and I were grabbing coffee at the Einstein's on campus to catch up in between our crazy college student schedules. She had recently gotten engaged to Jake, so of course we talked about wedding details! I remember V had a long list of "wedding to-do's" that seemed never ending. One of those "to-do's" was to find a photographer to take their engagement photos. Right at that moment, it was like the interest in photography that I had many years before sparked once again. It's like I forgot that I used to take pictures and she's the one who reminded me! So, in an attempt to help take at least one thing of her "to-do" list, I offered to take some engagement photos for them. I warned her that it had been quite some time since I held a camera! (I didn't even have a camera at the time...I had to borrow a friend's!) V was so excited about the idea, and I was excited (also a little nervous) to use a camera again!
And so was the beginning of the second part of my journey in photography. So, THANK YOU, Jake + V, for giving me the opportunity then to pick up a camera! And thank you for giving me the opportunity now to shoot another incredible step in your lives together...Baby Oliver!!! You 2 will make the most amazing, compassionate parents! I cannot wait to watch him grow up and have killer soccer skills like his dad, and the best sense of humor like his mom! He's one blessed little dude to come into the world and into your care. Love you guys!
