Every time I look at JD & Johnelle’s maternity photos taken at an adorable tree farm in Woodbury, MN, I can’t help but hum to myself a new Christmas jingle. The adorable little trees were covered in snow, and we walked along, only hearing the sound of snow crunching under our feet and the laughter as we chatted about life, while fresh snowflakes floated down from the sky above. It might sound cheesy, but magical is the only thing I can say when I think back to walking up to the Christmas tree farm for their maternity portraits.
I almost rescheduled with them. It was the Sunday after Thanksgiving, there was plenty going on and the weather was getting pretty blah-ish. It was coming down rather quickly, the roads were already wet, and it was blowing the snow a good amount. The only challenging part was that Johnelle is pregnant! So rescheduling pregnant mamas for their maternity photos is something I really didn’t want to do, because those adorable babies have a mind of their own when it gets close to the end.
Thankfully, we obviously made it safely there and safely home, but wow, was it fun laughing and chit-chatting as we tromped around in the snow, excitedly capturing the joyous step of soon-to-be welcoming a little one into JD & Johnelle’s lives!
JD & Johnelle, you two are awesome! Thanks so much for such a fun time and trusting me with each of these precious moments in your life! We pray that as you step into this new stage, you’ll be able to look back on these photos and be reminded how beautiful and excited you were to enter into where you are now – even amidst the late nights & early mornings, diaper changes, and checking of temperatures. Parenting is not for the faint of heart, but it is such a beautiful reminder to help us stay plugged into the correct source of power! Congrats you two, can’t wait to find out all about how you meet him or her!
