About this time last year, (well about 14 months ago) I was photographing Jessi & Bilal’s wedding.
Jessi and I worked together at Baptist Hospital East, and I was honored when she asked me to photograph her wedding, here in Louisville.
A few months ago, Bilal was drafted into the NFL, and they moved to New Jersey so he could be part of the NY Jetts.
When Jessi called to tell me they would be in town for a few weeks, I was hoping her belly would be showing enough so that I could do her maternity portraits while they were in town. Jessi is 28 weeks in these photos, I usually suggest waiting until about 34 weeks to do the maternity session, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Jessi looks beautiful, and seeing these two interact, is exactly why I love doing what I do.
It is such a huge honor to me when I get repeat clients. I only wish I would be able to do Tavis’ newborn photos when he arrives. (I keep telling them they should just fly me up to NJ when he is born, but they’re not taking the hint, lol)
