Last Saturday, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Jessica and Jessie for their maternity session! It was an unusually bright spring day (for Oregon), and Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden was practically glistening in the sunshine! When paired with the glow of these adorable parents-to-be, you’ve got the recipe for an absolutely dreamy session.
Jessica and Jessie are expecting their first child, a sweet baby girl, in June. When they first decided to start trying for a baby, they were told that it takes most couples 6 months to conceive. But much to their surprise and excitement, it happened after one month of trying! Though Jessica had to bear through her share of morning sickness in the first trimester, she has loved so many parts of her pregnancy, such as getting to feel the baby move; knowing she’s growing and healthy; and bonding with her baby through the closeness of carrying her.
Their daughter will have three aunts (no uncles yet!) who will be competing to be her “favorite”. She is already so loved by all her family and friends! Jessica and Jessie are so excited to meet their little girl and watch her grow into a person with strengths and passions. They also can’t wait to read out loud with her (which is something they started doing during the pregnancy). And more than anything, they are excited to learn how to do this thing called parenting together.
Jessica and Jessie were such a sweet couple to work with, and it was such an honor to capture this special time of growth for their family. We hope one day they’ll be able to look back at these photos with their daughter and cherish the memories stored in them for years to come.
