A week ago I met up with Darleen and David for some maternity photos. For those of you who remember, we photographed Darleen and David's wedding back in 2010.
We started in the baby's room.
They have gone with a Lion's King theme in the room. SO CUTE!!!
They are having a boy...and his name is going to be Dominic. They already have a piggy bank ready to go for him and Darleen added the "french" look.
David bought this shirt for Dominic already. Darleen and David love sushi.
And they already have a bunch of baby hats ready to go for a newborn session.
Notice anything a bit different in this photo? David has supplied some of his favorite toys for Dominic.
One of the things I love most about Darleen is how beautiful she is....her eyes are fascinating.
The blinds were causing criss-cross streaks across the bed and I loved it!
David and Darleen's relationship is built on a lot of laughter. And they didn't let me down the day I visited. David is a super funny guy.
After spending some time indoors, we went outside to take a few maternity photos.
I think this is my favorite of the day.
Gotta love RED shoes!
Darleen had a chalk board ready when I arrived and we made good use of it.
The real reason for the outdoor portion of our shoot was to make sure and bring the rest of the family. BACON is the old guy on the left, he's a Brindle Pitbull mix. David got him at the SPCA in September 2002. PRADA (far right) is the one with patches on her tongue; she's a Brindle Pitbull terrier mix. David also got her at the SPCA in July 2003 because Bacon was lonely and needed a friend. TWIX (in the middle) is a Basenji Pitbull mix. They got her in September 2010 from a friend that saved her from the American River. They got her when she's about 2 weeks old.
They wanted to be sure and have a whole family photo and somehow we managed to get everyone looking all at the same time! What a wonderful day.
