The first thing Patrick did was convince Ashley that they should get a dog. Jersie, a beautiful chocolate lab with soulful eyes, became a part of the family in a big way. Now Jersie and Ashley are best buds, and she was the first baby of the house.
Fast forward a few years. Ashley has always wanted to go to Costa Rica… like since she was in grade school. She has always been fascinated with the monkeys there, and when she and Patrick finally had the chance to go, something wonderful happened. She had an experience that she has always dreamed about, and she came home with a new glow about her. She told me that she remembers Patrick saying that he was excited because he thought she might be pregnant. Sure enough he was right.
Patrick and Ashley are quite proud of their new nursery: Monkey themed. It was so much fun to capture them in this special place, and to include their fur baby in the images.
These two are so sweet, and I am looking forward to working with them over the next year during their Baby Plan, a collection of four sessions including maternity, newborn, 6 month, and 12 month.
