Waiting on Skylar Rose
It’s so hard to start a blog about an amazing session, WHY, you may ask… BECAUSE I don’t know where to even begin!
This BEAUTIFUL momma to be, reached out to me back in October of LAST YEAR! Talk about planning ahead! (As you may know planners have a special place in my heart. 🙂 ) When the time came for us to meet for her Pre-Session consult, it was like talking with a long lost friend. We had the best time just talking about her upcoming session and everything else under the sun.
As the session day arrives, after a little weather scare… THIS GEORGIA WEATHER IS CRAZY! I am BUSTING at the seams for this session because ON TOP of this being Leonia’s (mommy to be) maternity session. She is ALSO turning thirty, AND her boyfriend had a huge surprise for her this day TOO! So needless to say I am just dying!
The day ended up being just fabulous a little windy, but fabulous nonetheless. Now being that I am on the inside of the BIG surprise from daddy to be (Paul) I was constantly looking at how Leonia and Paul were looking at each other. I kept my eye on Paul, reading his body language…Which to my surprise was still very calm and collected. I loved how they both kept giggling and laughing at each other. I would catch Paul on the regular with a big smile on his face, in return making Leonia smile back. Which now is a good time to mention Leonia’s smile is infectious. She has one of those smiles that makes you think of the statement ” you light up a room with that smile.” Together this couple is just something special, and I LOVED watching and photographing it.
I was SO tickled when they pulled up to the location and Paul gets out a LARGE suitcase. I was assuming it was Leonia’s but oh no… it was PAUL’S! He was SO put together! We kept laughing at how prepared he was…. and the whole time Leonia was worried about his clothing for the session HA! All of the hard work they both put into this session was SO very evident. It made for an amazing session.
SO as the day winds to a close, at our second location…. the big surprise came… Paul PROPOSED to Leonia! That’s right guys they are now ENGAGED!
There was laughter and tears, and of course hugs! Did i mention her dad showed up too!!!! HEART SWELLING!!!! For those of you who know me, know that I AM OBSESSED with proposals. I’m such a romantic at heart. And Paul nailed it on the head! It was an absolutely beautiful thing! This session was one of the most unique and beautiful sessions EVER! I am beyond happy that I was privileged to be there. Its not every day I get to photograph an amazing proposal.
SO as I bring this blog to a close I want to say, Paul and Leonia I AM SO HAPPY for you both! Keep each other laughing and smiling and nothing will get in your way! I cannot wait to meet Skylar and see what else the future has in store for you! Thank you for letting me be a part of this AMAZING time!
