When I was pregnant with James, I had random friends and family take snapshots of me throughout the pregnancy because I love photos. I never went to a professional though, due to money restraints. This time around I didn’t plan on going to a professional photographer either, but a very generous friend of mine donated a free photo session to the Going Going Ghana Auction, and I won it! I gave half of her normal sitting fee (which is already inexpensive to begin with) to my friend’s mission trip, and got a wonderful photo session out of it.
Extra bonus, the sweet gal who took our photos is practically our neighbor. I had no idea! Can’t wait to hang out with her more. She is still somewhat of a newbie to photography, but she’s amazing already. James had the best time being her little model. When I got home and she had already posted a few of the pictures, tears filled my eyes. Now I’m just left wondering, why didn’t I get professional photos taken when I was pregnant with James???
