This session was a pretty special one.
This guy? He's my little brother. The one who used to sabotage my friend sleep overs and cause all kind of ruckus. The one who would get right in your face while sleeping and chomp on stinky summer sausage. The one who knew just the right buttons to push, at just the right time....and still does.
It's kind of a weird thing watching your little brother who excelled at all things "little brother-ish" grow up, soon to become a dad. It's also pretty amazing to see how much love he already has for this little guy. Add in Amanda, who is insanely sweet, and also very saintly to be able to handle my brother's shenanigans, and little "Baby Shelly" is one lucky little fellow. Of course, part of the reason he is such a lucky fellow is his ultra-cool auntie who canNOT wait to meet him. And I suppose the rest of the family is a little excited, too.
Amanda is just the most adorable, most sweetest pregnant momma you ever did see. Adorable Amanda plus my grown up little brother plus the spectacular sunshine plus a mid-December heat wave made for one gorgeous session.
