A Bun in the oven......

Question of the day.... where did the term "bun in the oven come from" ???? Anyone else believe in signs???

I do- I see things all the time that point to bigger things- the unexplained smack upside my all knowing- greater being. I'm sure it could be argued that these things are "luck" or "chance" ..... but I'm going to go with divine inspiration.

I met T&R last night for the first time when they arrived at my house for photos. We hopped in my car and drove around and did several "stop, drop & rolls" as I like to call them- just driving and walking around downtown, looking for inspiration.

The wording in this empty store front caught my eye. For a couple of reasons- first- I just thought was cute- but when then- when I got T's attention and pointed to it- and we both grinned ear to ear..........I got the impression that this couple was not only expecting a miracle in the sense of creating a life, nurturing it in your belly and laboring to give life.... but that it may not have been an easy venture.... something I'm quite familiar with. So I thought it was fitting to include that text somewhere in our session.

It was an absolutely glorious evening- and we covered a good amount of ground- hunting for fun spots to shoot. They were so good natured to humor my sometimes odd requests. I usually tell folks when we start a session- "you're going to think I'm crazy (and really- that's not too far from the truth....) - at least once during our shoot- but you've just got to trust- and go with it.

The colors and textures we found were perfection!
This is going to be one gorgeous baby- both parents are so tall and good looking! (his eyes- her smile.... can't miss!) :)

T&R are both so funny and sooooo crazy in love and it shows in how they joke with each and lavish kisses and touches on one another. There's no greater gift parents can give to their children- than to show each other affection- these two will be wonderful role models!

What a perfect way to end our day- on the waterfront at sundown...

I can't wait to meet this baby- Congrats guys- thanks for choosing me to chronicle this most amazing journey for you! xoox Didi

Oh my gosh!!! You both look amazing and sooo happy. Love the pictures. Niji thought that they were "unbelievable" and she loves the picture with Uncle Rick's head on Auntie Trish's belly. Sending you lots of love from MA.
