Melissa and Ed are expecting!

A couple of weeks ago, I got to photograph another dear friend of mine who is due in March. It was such a treat to photograph Melissa and Ed who are about to become parents for the first time. I absolutely loved documenting this time for the two of them.

We started out at North Avenue beach and let's just say, they were troopers. It was a chilly January day in Chicago and they were freezing, but I am so glad we did it anyway. 

Take a look!

After a quick little session by Lake Michigan, we headed back to their place for a different view of the city and also heat.

Congratulations, you guys!

Rhian & Ian are expecting!

These two are dear friends. We have traveled together, visited each other's homes many of times despite living in different states, put intense puzzles together, laughed so many times and have continued to get closer as the years go by. That is no easy feat.

We knew it was a dream of theirs to become parents, so when we heard the news that they were expecting and due in March, we were absolutely ecstatic for them. I cannot wait to see them as parents and it was an absolute treat to document this happy time for these two parents-to-be.

Take a look!
