In the last few years I have had the pleasure of documenting some incredible moments in people's lives. While documenting those moments I have produced thousand of photographs, but none have been as rewarding as the images below. It's hard to put into words how amazing I feel when I look at these photographs. That feeling has nothing to do with how the images were made or with what camera or where in the world they were taken. It comes solely from what is captured in them.
If there is one thing our pregnancy has taught me it is how quickly life passes us by. It seems like only yesterday Jess surprised me with hand made onsie with a camera on it. Now seven months later it feels like only a blink of an eye. These photographs will forever be a reminder of an incredible journey we had together. It was a trip to celebrate the transition from one phase of our lives to the next and it could not have been more perfect.
Those close to me know how much it means to me to be a father. It's something that I have wanted for as long as I can remember. Now that dream is coming true and it's something I am beyond grateful for. I was lucky to find an incredible woman that is kind, loving, adventurous, loyal, beautiful and incredibly supportive. There is a certain level of fear that comes with having a child. I have felt my share of that over these seven months, but those feelings are quickly laid to rest when I think of who I have by my side.
Life goes by so fast... It's something you hear so many people say and it's one hundred percent true. Life gets busy and we forget to take the time to really live in a moment. Part of this trip was about just that. Taking some time to truly enjoy one another's company before our baby girl arrives. I have made a promise to myself that I will do the same with Indie. I want to soak up every moment I can with her because I understand how quickly those moments will pass.
Some day I will have the pleasure of showing these photographs to Indie and that will bring the most incredible happiness to my heart.
