Melissa and her husband have a magnificently moving story. She’s a hardworking doctor. He’s a local fireman. Together, they radiate love like crazy.

I was so excited to get a call from Melissa about her maternity photos. Not only did she sound truly sweet and charming, she started off by asking me if it would be ok to include her chickens in her photo shoot. I wouldn’t be lying if I told you that there was some fist pumping going on in the background. Chickens! Maternity photos! To me, that equals a recipe for some amazing photos. Now, imagine my surprise and delight when I showed up to find out that not only were there chickens, but Melissa and her husband had goats. And sheep! And more than a few vintage cars! I was a photographer in heaven. And all I could think of during my time with them was how lucky their little boy is going to be. Imagine growing up with that many animals! And how cool are you when you’re a 13 year old boy and your dad picks you up from school in his classic Cadillac?

Thank you Melissa for such a wonderful session. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you! And I can’t wait to meet you little guy!
