A little over a year ago, a girl I used to work with had a baby. Until that point, that’s all she was to me, a girl I used to work with. She asked me to do newborn photos of her new, little man. It turned out she lived right around the corner from me! So, as she entered motherhood and became a stay-at-home-mom, we began to visit each other, even after Ryan’s newborn session. She quickly became a friend. Much to everyone’s surprise, including hers, around the same time we were discussing Ryan’s 6 month pictures, she announced that Ryan was going to be a big brother! Since Melissa and I have developed a friendship and we live so close together, I volunteered to go to her house every 4 weeks and take a picture of her growing belly. And then, when Brooklyn was born, I got to do her newborn pictures! So, here is the timeline of Melissa’s growing belly, a few newborn pictures of Brooklyn, and last but not least, a picture of Ryan next to a picture of Brooklyn, in the same pose, with the same prop, at the same age (4 weeks old) just over one year apart. ENJOY!!
