Hello World, I'm Marleigh

So before I introduce Marleigh to the world, let me first tell you the story of the day I found out about her. One day in June of last year, Marleigh's mom, Wendy & I got together and headed up towards Kingsley Plantation to do a fun portrait session. We had a great time for a couple of hours and as we headed home. As we are driving and talking, suddenly Wendy says, " I think I am going to be sick." as she jerks the wheel and slams on the breaks on the side of the road. The door flew open and she became (let's just say) very ill. Wendy, of course, begins to blame it on the Woody's that she had eaten earlier that day. As we pull back onto the road, I say the craziest thing.... Wen, maybe you are pregnant!! Being that Wendy & hubbie hadn't really given much thought to having kids yet, she was of course, in denial.




A day after the shoot I get an text from Wendy.... "Girl, the test was positive! I am pregnant." And then, 9 months later.... World, Meet Marleigh!

  7. The first and fifth one are my favorites! Good work. I have been inspired to take pictures of my little one. I had to recover from a c-section so I haven't gotten back into the photography thing just yet. I will now! :) You are an inspiration!

    Hope you are well!
