My most recent photo shoot was for my dear friends Chelsea and Chris. As you recall, we met them – now – almost 18 months ago. We have shared so many moments with them and enjoyed every single one. This weekend, we were so fortunate to share in their baby shower to celebrate Baby Brooks. (Yes! This is the same GQ couple that I was fortunate to photograph for the maternity photos.)
Chelsea and Chris told me that they didn’t want me to come to the shower as their photographer, they wanted me there as a guest. While I appreciate the sentiment, I didn’t listen to either one of them. (I know, you’re shocked!) Billy and I attended the shower as their guests, but I still brought along my trusty camera.
I am pleased to say that I captured many moments that I know Chelsea will forever cherish as she and Chris celebrated Baby Brooks with their friends and family. It is so awesome to see both Chelsea and Chris beaming over the joy they have for their baby and the awesomeness of their family and friends that so lovingly shared in this celebration.
This couples baby shower slowly turned into a bit of a going away celebration for Chris. He actually is set to deploy to Kuwait in August and will miss those first 9 months of Baby Brooks’ life serving our country. (Thank you for your service and dedication Chris! Thank you Chelsea for supporting someone as awesome your husband as he serves abroad!)
