Mystery Baby!

It is so rare to hear of first time parents who are waiting till the birth of their child to see if it is a boy or a girl! Well that is just what Jackie and Mario did!! I shot their maternity photos where they had to bring both boy shoes and girl shoes! Jackie was absolutely glowing!! I asked her if her outfit choice of a pink dress was an indication of what she thought she was having. She said it wasn’t that she had no idea what to expect! It was another beautiful afternoon in Southern California as these two high school sweethearts smiled lovingly at each other during their shoot. Enjoy!!JM01JM02JM03JM04JM05JM06JM07JM08JM09JM10JM11JM12JM13JM14Weeks later I got a call at 6:36am that the mystery baby was on its way!!

What would it be?? A boy or a girl?? Ladies and gent’s, we have ourselves…JM24JM25JM26JM31JM28JM29The first hours are a very special time. I couldn’t keep a smile off of my face as they gazed so lovingly on their newborn daughter. They couldn’t take their eyes off of her, it was literally as if I wasn’t even there. Congratulations Jackie and Mario on your beautiful healthy baby girl. And good luck, when I asked Mario how fatherhood felt he replied,

“I am in so much trouble, I love her so much already.”
