Lauren and Greg’s session was one of my absolute favorites! Just a few hours before their session was to begin, Lauren messaged me and shared some props that she was hoping to incorporate into their session. My adrenaline raced, goosebumps appeared on my arms, and I squealed with joy. Their fall family session was turning into a family pregnancy announcement! I loved getting to be a part of capturing this very special chapter in their lives. You can view more pregnancy announcements here.
Lauren had created a big brother letter board, and she brought along their ultrasound for their son to hold. It was a good thing that Lauren and Greg brought M&M’s along as a treat, because these became the motivation for their two-year-old son. You would never guess it, but that letter board may or may not be covering up a bag of M&Ms in some of those pictures. Some of my favorites from Lauren and Greg‘s session were the pictures of only Lauren and Greg with Greg‘s hands on Lauren‘s growing baby bump.
Lauren and Greg, thank you so much for allowing me to document this exciting time in your lives. Thank you for trusting me with your baby news. I know that these pictures brought joy to your family over the holidays. Your son’s smile gave me so much joy, and reliving these pictures put a smile on my face. I look forward to watching your love story grow. I am so excited for you to see some of my many favorites from your family pregnancy announcement session in Upper Bidwell Park.
