I don’t know how else to say it except that I love this family! This is the 3rd time I’ve had the privilege of photographing them the past two years, and this time is extra special. You see Jim and Michelle weren’t planning on having children, but sometimes things happen in our lives that make us realize something, and Someone, greater than ourselves is at work for the better good. Michelle and Jim both recognized it and couldn’t be happier about baby Ava, due towards the end of October. Their love is so strong and it’s a joy to be around them. Michelle is so beautiful and sexy (ask Jim) at 34 weeks and everything is ready for Ava … now all they have to do is wait (the hardest part, right?). Jim’s daughter, Ryan, is definitely one of my favorite six year olds. She’s just so cute and sweet and she’s probably making some good money as a first grader with all those new teeth coming in. :-). Her and Michelle have quite a bond and Ryan is pretty excited to be a big sister. Ava is going to make the most wonderful addition to their family. Congratulations everyone! And guess who gets to take Ava’s newborn pics? Squeal!
