BABY ON BOARD – A shoot with my dear friend Carolyn and her husband Jameson, to announce that they are expecting!
Ironically, this was completely unexpected for them. Carolyn is actually moving back to San Diego after a 2 year stint in American Samoa, and with only one month left to go before her big move, she’s got more baggage! A little one is on its way, and Carolyn and Jameson are very excited to welcome the biggest change in their lives yet.
We’ve been talking about ideas for photos to announce their baby, and everything seemed so cheesy. There’s just no way around it! I forfeited any hope that the photos wouldn’t turn out tacky and instead went along and made fun of it. Cheesy pregnancy idioms? Bring it on!
And it turned out perfect.
Jameson is quite frankly, the best surfer in American Samoa. And Carolyn is our resident “it” girl. It seemed only appropriate to glamorize these two defining traits, and make what we could of it. Carolyn brought the tiniest flip flops she could find, Jameson brought his surfboard, and we played around on the beach at Fatumafuti and Alega.
Thanks so much to Gabby for helping me out with this shoot!
Love these two so much!
