Disclaimer: Apparently I have a thing for caps in this post... I promise I'm not shouting. ;) I'm just super excited. :D
This is the third of the 3 promised posts before the end of May... JUST in time!
I didn't mention it in my back to blogging post, but my brother-in-law and his gorgeous wife are making an appearance on the blog again because... THEY'RE HAVING A BABY GIRL! Well, okay, *she's* having the baby, but he helped. :P And she's having a GIRL! That's a big deal in the family we married into... They're all boys! Yes, my mother-in-law lives to tell the tales of raising 4 boys. And they're all fabulous guys. :) There's something special about starting off the next generation with a little girl. Everyone is PUMPED!
We set the date for their maternity session weeks ago, thinking that by the THIRD WEEK OF MAY that spring would have shown up to stay. Alas, not the case in Western WA. At least 70% of the time that I look at the weather app on my phone, I get 6 days straight with rain. So of course, while it was decent on the drive from Kent to Lacey, the rain came harder and harder. Thankfully, they arrived a little bit after we did, so I scouted the park and the rain started to let up! Woot!
One of my favorite things about shooting close friends and family is that I KNOW when I get a real, honest smile out of them. Now, I may have had to draw attention to holding the reflector between my knees to get said smiles, but it was totally worth it. ;)
On our way back to their house, I found myself turning around in my seat saying to my husband, "Look how PERFECT the light is right now!!!!!" We made it back to their house, snuck down the property line between two houses to pop out onto the golf course for just a few minutes. We barely caught the end of the light. I'm glad I dragged her out there!
