I had no idea who I was photographing until the end of this photoshoot and I am so thankful for that, I am sure I would have gotten extremely nervous.
They had contacted me and we had gone through all the talk of where and when and what kind of shoot. We met at Arbor Hills in Plano, a beautiful preserve filled with hills, walking trails, biking trails, creeks, beautiful bridges and even a lookout point if you feel like making your way up the "mountain"!
Before they arrived I went in search of the perfect spot. We were shooting at sunset and I wanted that glorious golden light coming through the trees. I had found my spot when another photographer came in and started shooting where I had set up... this did not sit well with me, I became territorial... even asking him when he planned to move... he knew I was there, I heard his clients mention me, he ignored them.
Anyways, I hiked back up and waited for my clients. I knew she was expecting and I knew he was very tall so it was super easy to spot them as they arrived. We did our introductions and hand shakes then set out on our journey. These two were so easy to talk to, so friendly and so very in love which made for a super easy shoot.
After we were done, we walked back up and I introduced them to my family, our boys had been playing with daddy at the playground.
They had mentioned they were only here for 4 months then Jared had to go back to work. I said, "oh, what do you do?" He said, "I am a Professional Baseball Player, I am a relief pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates!" I was like, NO WAY!!!!! I was on cloud 9. I had just photographed a pro baseball player...and of course...all my boys including daddy were wearing Cubs shirts and hats, lol
Anyways, it was a super cool moment for me, one I will never forget.
Thank you again Jared and Kelly and I wish you all the very best with your precious baby!
