As I pulled down the long driveway I became increasingly excited.  Not only because I hadn’t seen my friend in a couple of years, but because I was getting to see her pregnant, with twins!  She lives in the mountains so I had all kinds of ideas for photos around her home, in the ‘woods’.

It didn’t take more than a few minutes to realize that I really didn’t even want her walking up or down the stairs.  She was so tired, out of breath.  I concluded that growing two babies truly is twice as hard.  But you would never know it, at 29 weeks pregnant she looked just beautiful.


Needless to say I did not make her hike through the woods for me.  Instead I told her to cuddle on her porch swing.

I’m sure it’s not often that your photographer tells you to lay against your roofline.



So why is this post titled ‘just in time’? I received a message from her late the next night.  Early that morning she had delivered her two beautiful babies by emergency c-section.

Goosebumps…everywhere.  Everyone is healthy, but the babies need prayers to get stronger each day as they will be in the NICU for probably the next two months.



My sweet friend, I can’t wait to meet those babies and photograph your new family once you’re all home together – xoxo
