I will never forget that moment when I received that sms from Lucille saying: "I'm pregnant!!
I did the *happy dance
* and began to think up maternity shoot and all types of photo ideas!
See Lucille and I have been great friends for many years, (she was also one of my bridesmaids
and I always pictured her as a "mommy" as Lucille is just too cute, she has so much love in her heart for others,
she's the person that always goes the extra mile for the people she cares about!
On their wedding day
, it rained and their couple photo session got cut short due to the bad weather,
and yet they still had the most exquisite and stunning photos in the rain!
So when it was time to do their maternity shoot, I wanted to treat them! :)
Weeks before, I began to rattle my brain and think of unique ideas, new ideas for their shoot!
I sent Lucille a long list of ideas and props and then Lucille went shopping! :)
My favourites have to be when they are reading the baby books and Iain's book says:
"What nobody tells a new father
...", just the title of the book alone had me in stitches!
The blue and white picnic blanket was very special and dear to Lucille as it was her grandmother's blanket.
" is my new craze! I love bunting! It's so cute!
When I asked Lucille what she thought of my bunting idea she offered to make the bunting herself! :)
I also got so excited when they let me style their outfits, I was allowed to raid their cupboards and when Iain showed me his green takkies
and I found that red checked shirt in his cupboard and picked out the green cardigan and brown boots for Lucille, I just knew we were going to have so much fun! :)
We had so many other ideas... but that's all going to come soon when we do little Tré's baby shoot! :)
