I started photographing this family when Erin was pregnant with #3 and did Tate’s newborn session as well, over three years ago. Since that time, I have photographed their family every year around the holidays including in 2010 and again in 2011 (although, it appears their session slipped through the cracks and didn’t get blogged).
In that time, we have become neighbors and the greatest of friends. So, when Erin joyfully confided in me that she and Brian were adding to her family, I started plotting. Being overly cautious, Erin chose not to officially announce her great news until well after the first trimester had passed. We waited well past the eleventh hour to photograph their family for holiday cards, with the plan of making the card a pregnancy announcement too. But, Erin and Brian weren’t ready to tell the boys prior to the session. So, pulling of this great surprise was nothing short of miraculous – just like the much anticipated Baby W – VI! This session was fast, easy, and fun – and Brodie, Evan, and Tate were none the wiser after – which we all called a big success!
The official countdown has begun, with just about four weeks to go. Can’t wait to meet Baby Boy 4.0!
