This family is moving, hundreds of miles away, from me. Sighs. It was a bittersweet session. I've followed this family since she was in the womb. First it was a baby shower party, then a maternity session followed with a birth session. That did not stop there, we also did newborn session as well as monthly until she turned one. This session is also memorable because the parents surprised me in the best way possible. The mother said there was one more book she wanted Maddy to read. The book was inside a manila and I assumed that it meant it was a favorite of Maddy's. I decided to focus on Maddy's expressions by having my lens tight on her face. As the book was being given to Maddy, I took shots and immediately noticed the title of the book, "new baby." I jumped back and looked at the parents quickly, "whaaaaa?!!! OMG!! When are you due!!!!" It was just a perfect moment. The baby's due in February and I now have Indiana on my must-fly-to list. Thank you for two wonderful years and I (and my camera) will miss you guys.
