I have known Joanna and Corey for a little over two years. I know they are avid cookers, bloggers, and totally in love with one another. I have had the pleasure of capturing their anniversary pictures two years in a row. I seriously couldn’t ask for a more in love couple to capture.
A magical thing happened last year, as we grew closer as friends, we begin talking more. Joanna spoke of trying to get pregnant as they had hoped and prayed for a long time for a baby to come along, through these trials and tribulations both kept a smile on their face and hoped for the best.
When Joanna contacted me with the new before Christmas, I cried for them because I was so happy, and I just had to see her to just hug her. She said Corey had been bugging her to tell me the news for quite some time. I was to hold this secret until the time was right to tell everyone the wonderful news. I wanted to do something special for these two for their pregnancy announcement. With a family that celebrates Hanukkah and Christmas, what better way to mix the two. The Bell’s welcomed me to their home at the beginning of my Holiday vacation (yes I work on vacation too), and I finally got to meet the furry babies as well, Duck, Goose, and Slinky.
Here are a few of my favorites from their session:
