Awaiting Baby Dustin | Kristinne + Joel Maternity Session

     This isn't the first time these two have been in front of my camera lens. BUT this is the first time they have been in front of my camera since becoming pregnant. I must say, I love these two people so much and cannot wait to meet baby Dustin <3  I am so excited for you guys!

     I asked Kristinne what she felt when she first found out she was pregnant and she told me "there were a lot of emotions going on all at once, like is this real? Let me take another test!" and after 5 days and 10 tests later she was finally convinced it was really happening. She also said that explained her craving McDonald's French Fries at 10 p.m. (and in the later months her craving turned to watermelon) but nothing weird like pickles and ice cream. 

     She also told me that it was hard for her and Joel to pick out a name they both liked that wasn't already being used by some of their friends who had kids already. Then they finally came up with Dustin.

     I also asked her what she was looking forward to when Dustin finally arrives and she told me she is looking forward to taking a lot of photos and videos of him (rightfully so!). 

     When we were planning this session we kept in mind the location we were at and the fact that both of us are currently pregnant (Pregnant women and lots of walking are not our friends right now). And given Florida's unpredictable afternoon showers, humidity and our state bird- the mosquitoes on steroids, we knew an early morning session would be best all the way around. And it was a decision that did not disappoint. 

     Narrowing down my favorites from their session proved to be extremely difficult. So after a painstaking process of picking my best of the best, most favorites that the world just HAD to see I narrowed it down to these <3 and here they are below. 

I am so excited for you guys! Karlo and I cannot wait to meet your little guy when he makes his entrance into the world! <3
