We've got a belly bump on the blog! Courtney and Paul are expecting their first baby, and I am so excited for them! 

We first met Courtney and Paul while they were a part of the bridal party for Matt and Michelle's wedding at the Franklin Plaza Terrace a couple of years ago - a super fun day!! 

These two are also huge animal lovers! Knowing that we work closely with some animal shelters / rescue groups, over the last year or Courtney and Paul communicated with me every so often while they were looking to add a four legged friend to their family. I kept my eyes out for them and referred a few options to them. Unfortunately, we just couldn't find the right fit for them. Then Moe came along; and I learned why nothing had worked out until then.

Almost a year ago to the date, Ed and I rescued Moe as a puppy from someone who was giving him away because he didn't have the time to take care of him. We were told he was a lab mix and his photos were just adorable. We couldn't bear the idea of this beautiful puppy getting into the wrong hands, so we took him in without even a prospect in mind for his forever home. However, once Paul and Courtney saw the photo I shared of him, they approached me, and I just knew this was the right home for him!!

After a trip to the vet to get him in working order, we brought Moe to his new family. And he fit right in. While I was sad to say goodbye, I was thrilled to see him in a home I knew he would be well cared for.

About five months ago Courtney contacted me again; this time to tell me they were adding a two legged family member - they were expecting! She wanted maternity photos, and I was pratically jumping up and down when I typed YES back to her email! :)

We were both so excited spend some time with Courtney and Paul last weekend (and to see Moe too)!
Scroll on down to see some of our favorites from their session! First, check out these photos of Moe as a puppy... Awe...

You can see by his expressions, that not much has changed. Except that he has gotten bigger. :)

After a little play time with Moe, we got to the real reason for our session; we are so excited and happy for Courtney and Paul!
