I love getting the opportunity to work with other creatives in my community. And this is the second photographer in less than a week…
Mara – the face behind: Mara Schall Photography, approached me with a very broad favor. She gave me little to nothing (facts) when asking if I could simply take a photo or two for her. When I pushed to see what these couple photos entailed… she finally spilled the beans – She & Andrew were expecting… and they wanted to take a silly picture to announce it to their siblings, and then their friends. (Side note: their parents already knew… and they needed to tell their siblings soon so the ‘grandmas’ didn’t spill the beans first.)
I of course accepted the position, kept their secret for around a month now, and encouraged a whole shoot, rather then 2-3 photos. I wanted them to remember this moment. You see, Mara & Andrew have been trying for some time… and it finally happened. I wanted them to remember their home – their pup ( they only had one pup when I did the shoot ) – their life… together, during this very moment of excitement.
Congratulations. You two were so much fun to work with & will make the best parents! Prayers as you continue your journey into parenthood.<3
(and the silly) yet adorable announcement! <3
