Remember that freezing cold maternity session with my BFF since seventh grade? Well here is the hearty guy who came of it (and I suppose he came from other things as well). I traveled to New Jersey to meet this little nugget, and hang out with his parents. I'll just put it out there, he's strong-willed...just like mom and dad!
I relished in the opportunity to spend this time with my dear friend in this transitional time, and just as I assumed she and her partner would, they are rocking this parenting thing.
One of my favorite parts about being a newborn photographer is getting to hear each child's (and parents') birth story. Every single one is different, amazing and inspirational. John did not make his entrance into the world easy for his mama, but luckily, she's one of the strongest people I know.
