I know there’s a lot of talk about the ills of social media. I personally have to be vigilant to not let it take hold as daily time-waster and breeder of discontent. Yet I also recognize that social media allows me to meet and connect with people I may never encounter otherwise. That’s true of Melissa! Despite having no mutual friends, she found me on Instagram. As a result we planned this dreamy Chester Frost Maternity Session together!
Before we headed to the water, I scouted some spots to start while the sun was still high in the sky. I found beautiful light that happened to be on the busy disk golf course. Thankfully, Jerod had played this course before. He gave me a heads up when a player was headed in our direction. I think we stayed mostly out of the way. Most importantly, none of us got hit in the face with a frisbee.
Melissa said that they were both convinced they were having a boy before they found out the gender. However, Melissa and Jerod are expecting a daughter in June! They are naming her Houston Kate. As a mother of three little girls myself, I reassured them that they are going to have a blast. If Jerod proves anything like the girl-dads I know, he will soon tap into a tenderness he didn’t know was inside of him.
Jerod was definitely the MVP of this session. Not only did he comply with all of my ridiculous posing requests, he left our session half way through to retrieve the dress Melissa accidentally left at the salon. That servant’s heart will definitely serve him well as he enters into the role of fatherhood.
Here are my favorites from our Chester Frost maternity session. I really had so much fun with this duo. It was hard to pick which photos to share on the blog! For more information about scheduling a session with me, click here.
