Adriana and Jon married in September 2013 and are now expecting their first baby! This past weekend, I met up with them for official maternity photos. I was completely excited when Adriana first asked me to take her photos a couple months ago. I was a little anxious since I've never done maternity photos before and I really wanted to make the parents-to-be happy.
Adriana and I go way back - like Ms. Walsh's kindergarten class at Miles Avenue Elementary back. We were science fair partners in fifth grade, went to community college together and are current prestigious members of the same cult/gang - The OG HP FON Girls. Anyway, my point is, we have a lot of shared memories and *wipes tears* we're growing up together still.
When one of your best friends is expecting her first baby and she requests your photography services, even if it happens to be during the impossibly chaotic holiday season, you make the time. The beautiful mom-to-be requested pics with a focus on the bump silhouette. Sometimes I lost track, don't ask how I could miss the cute little bump, but I definitely tried to stay focused on her request. Adriana and Jon were very open, enthusiastic and so photogenic and I had a great time working with them. I'm so happy we both able to do this. Worth it!
Baby Perez is due in February and they are keeping the gender a surprise. Until then, enjoy the sneak peek of their little one with these pics. :)
