Lee’s Summit Newborn Photos | Crew and his Mommas
I feel like I have known Brittany and Carolyn for more than 10 years, but apparently, I am wrong. I just saw on Facebook that they were celebrating their 10 year anniversary of meeting each other. I think I feel this way because it seems like so many many years ago that the Independence YMCA was open. And that is where we first met.
Now, I was just a member and I had four babies/toddlers so my facts are likely jumbled a bit due to sleep deprivation. I would see Carolyn’s friendly face and smile in passing and Brittany was my personal trainer for some time. I made her promise me that when we shot her session she would please not make me do any burpees. I really can’t see her face without thinking of the torturous things she made me do in the weight room. Now, that I am thinking about it, I really could use that in my life again. Meaning, really hard workouts…not burpees. Never burpees.
I still remember Brittany asking me if I would photograph her wedding someday and I said no. Not because I didn’t love her and wanted to work with her. But because I would be like the worst wedding photographer ever. I know my niche. My niche is babies. If there’s no baby involved I just can’t do it.
I did tell her that if she had a baby someday I would be her photographer. So here we are, just short of a decade later, and I am photographing Brittany and Carolyn’s son. Life is funny like that.
I didn’t really think, that day in the weight room at the Independence YMCA, that we would be together with all of their beautiful children fulfilling that off-handed promise I made to my friend.
