Nicole, Alex, & Jelly Bean ı Maternity Session
Nicole and Alex's Maternity Photo Shoot
Nicole and Alex are as sweet as pie. I've been lucky to see this family evolve from the beginning. I remember when Nicole started dating Alex. I knew they would get married as soon as I saw them together.
I was, however, surprisingly surprised when Nicole told me she was pregnant - as in, I really should not have been. Nicole actually had to stop hanging out with me because I kept pointing out "clues" that she was pregnant - and not just any clues -- I was noticing things that the average person might not, like her hair was growing faster, her nails were thicker, and a few other things. She finally broke down and told me after another two weeks. Since then, we have joked that I am like a truffle pig for pregnancy. Haha! It's an odd skill, but I'll take it!
Anyway, they are getting ready to welcome their first baby girl - who they have lovingly nicknames "Jelly Bean" - into the world in the next few weeks. The nickname is fitting for so many reasons, but I especially enjoy it for a few reasons:
1. Jelly Bean is a totally adorable nickname for the shape of the baby
2. There are so many variations of the nickname -- my personal favorite is JB
3. Nicole and Alex both have a major sweet tooth (you can see some of Nicole's dessert recipes here) -- and we are ALL sweet on the upcoming arrival of Jelly!
Before the weather turned too cold, we popped outside for a few quick photos. Enjoy!
