What could possibly be more exciting than expecting your first child?
If you ask Kim and Jose that question right now, they will likely tell you: Nothing. Nothing is more exciting than that!
You see, these two are expecting their first little one, a girl, next month, and they’re as happy as can be.
When Kim first contacted me (Kelley) about setting up a maternity session, I could feel their excitement, and that was through an email!
Not only was Kim super excited, but she was extremely organized and thorough when it came to planning her session.
After contacting Josh and me about setting up a shoot, she sent me another email that contained three location choices, website links and photos for each location, and photos of her and her husband so that we could see what they look like!
I’ll tell you what, THAT is my kind of email! With all of that organization and planning loveliness, I knew right away that Kim and I were going to get along just fine.
As soon as Josh and I saw the images for this library location, we jumped on it! Kim and Jose added it to their location list because they fell in love with its interesting architecture, and who can blame them? This place is amazing!
Now, if you’re not aware, it is usually the case that photographers (especially those with flashes and a few not so inconspicuous lenses) and public places do not usually mix well. Knowing this, Kim (being her ever-so-wonderful organized self) called ahead to make sure we would be permitted to take photos inside the library. To our surprise, they were completely fine with the idea!
Josh and I were so surprised by this, that we showed up to the location extra early just to double check on the whole shooting a giant camera in-doors thing. Not only were they okay with it, they LOVED the idea and were genuinely excited about it!
The four of us were excited about it as well, and for two main reasons: Awesome photos AND air conditioning! That’s pretty much hitting the mother-load when you’re doing a July photo session in Phoenix, AZ with a mother-to-be.
Kim and Jose, you guys are absolutely amazing, and with so many things working out perfectly in our favor, Josh and I are pretty sure that this maternity session was simply meant to be.
We had a blast quietly sneaking around the library with you, and we can’t wait until August when we get to meet your sweet little girl, and maybe read her a book or two.
