Cassi and James [Maternity]

I’ve known James since he was a little bitty baby when his momma used to rock him in the cradle … in those old cotton fields back home. Oh, I crack myself up! Ok, just seeing if you are actually reading this. So, I’ve known James since he was a little KID … a scrawny, skinny little kid who looked just like his dad then, and looks just like his dad now … and is just as kind and hard working too. His folks are some of our best friends, and James is their youngest of four … the last one to have babies. In order to catch up to his three sisters, James and Cassi decided to have twins. Ha! That’s not true either … GOD decided they should have twins and everyone is tickled pink … and blue. Cassie (Classy Cassi as I call her) looks so amazing at 35 weeks and has done everything in her power to give these babies the best start in life. She keeps fit at the gym, eats as healthy as humanly possible, and has a wonderful easy-going temperament. And in such a few short days or weeks, Paige and Cooper will make their way into the hearts and lives of not only these wonderful kids who will make wonderful parents, but into the hearts of everyone else around them. Everyone loves Cassi and James … everyone. This joyful news couldn’t be sweeter. These photos were taken on Father’s Day in the morning before we went to church … the church where I go, where James and Cassi goes, where his parents go, where all six cousins go, and where Paige and Cooper will go, growing up knowing they are loved by God first and foremost, and everyone else after that. Sometimes it’s a wonderful life. Congratulations you two. Love you both, Mary

I will give credit to all those talented people out there on Pinterest where I got many of these poses (cause really, this is only my third maternity session), but the next one … the prop … that’s from my brain. Sweet, isn’t it — that I alone — provided a way for James and Cassie to hear what little Paige and Cooper have to say. I know, say no more. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh my goodness, these pictures are beautiful, clever and perfect!!! You do have an amazingly creative brain my friend. You captured the Johnston Jr’s perfectly. Of course your models are my baby boy and his beautiful bride and my twin grandbabies (who are probably coming very soon)! The one of Cassi looking serenely into the camera with her big brown doe eyes is exquisite and brought tears to my eyes. Love, love, love them all.

One very proud auntie here, how would anyone choose? They are so sweet of both Cassi, James and the twins! So excited to see all of these maternity photos, great job as always, Mary! But then again I’m prejudiced and think your models were the best ones to date!

Wow! James and I love, love, love the pictures! They turned out amazing/BEAUTIFUL. Thank you so much for taking our maternity pictures. We went back and forth about taking pictures and we are both sooooo glad that we did. We looked at the pictures over and over last night and we can’t pick just one…so we will have a wall full of AMAZING pictures. We can’t wait for you to take pictures again for us in a couple of weeks.

Thank you again!

So glad you had me get pictures too Cassie because you are such a beautiful pregnant momma! I loved your choice of colors too which really gave the pictures a spark … as if you two love birds weren’t spark enough. It won’t be long now! To the rest of you, thank you for all the nice compliments on my part of things. They always encourage me and I appreciate you all! ๐Ÿ™‚ Mary
