Linden and Matt
Linden and Matt are expecting their first baby next month, so we got together for a baby bump shoot. Linden is a photographer herself and brought all kind of great props (most of which came out of her nursery). The chair has a little back story that is interesting… My sister Holly and I were driving down the road when I saw this chair (along with two others) sitting out beside the road. We turned around, and upon closer look I was ready to leave it. But Holly, being the fixer-upper that she is, insisted that it could be refinished and perfect for her nursery. She loved the shape and insisted that we load it up in the back of my car even though she already had a chair and ottoman sitting at home, waiting to be refinished. So, after stepping in a fire ant pile we managed to get it loaded up and headed on our way. We happened to be going to Linden and Matts house that night and told them about our find and Holly offered to let Linden have one of the chairs once she decided which one she was going to keep. She ended up keeping the first chair since it had an ottoman to go with it and passed this one on to Linden. Linden had it refinished and it seriously looks gorgeous now! Can’t believe we picked it up from off the side of the road….
So, without further ado, here is Linden, and her gorgeous chair!
Linden and I were in love with the light we had that day… we had to re-schedule due to rain, and now I am so glad we waited and got this yummy light!
Linden loves sun flare in pictures and had informed me that she wanted “lots of soft, gorgeous light”… I think we got it
Linden and Matt, thank you for asking me to capture this very special time in your lives… Can’t wait to meet that sweet baby! XoXo
