5 years ago I got a call from Courtney’s mom. I think I’ve told this story in a past blog post about Courtney and Ty, but I’m going to give a little refresher course here =) Sherry (Courtney’s mom) was inquiring about wedding photography, said she found me on one of the wedding websites. I was sicker than sick, had lost my voice. I was trying so hard to talk with her on the phone, but I’m sure she could barely understand me…..thankfully I made it thru the conversation and she still wanted to meet me, LOL! A week later, I met with Sherry & Courtney…little did I know that moment would be the start of a great friendship with a super sweet family!!!
Engagement Sessions, Weddings, Pregnancies, Babies…I’ve photographed them all for the Moore/Phillips Families, haha! And more to come in the very near future! But here we stop and savor a beautiful time in Ty and Courtney’s life, as they prepare for their newest additionS to arrive in just a couple weeks! And yes, I said “additions”…plural. We’re talkin’ TWO babies. As in TWINS. As in one boy and one girl….in her beautiful belly =) It was quite the surprise for this little family of three, to find out there were two itty bitty heart beats in there…well, a surprise for Ty & Courtney, but not so much a surprise for Jackson, who just turned 4 years old recently and apparently has the “Look Who’s Talking!” relationship with his baby bro and sis. Jackson told his mommy, before they even went to their first doctors appt, that she had TWO babies in her tummy and he was very insistent about it! Courtney’s natural reaction was to say “oh, no honey, mommy only has ONE baby in her tummy”, but who wouldn’t say that, right? After he continued to insist there were two babies, Courtney told me she started actually tinkering with the idea of “OMG, there can’t be two babies in there…could there be?….nooooo.” But when they found two heart beats, it became a reality and their family of three was now quickly becoming a family of five!
I will never forget the morning she called me, it was a Sunday. I already knew she was expecting because she had told me a week prior when she was doing my hair. And I knew she was going to her first doctors appt the following week. But when I saw her calling my phone, only a week after we had already chatted, I thought to myself…”hmmm, thats weird, I wonder why Courtney is calling…she can’t be calling to schedule her sessions already, could she? <silence> OMG, it’s twins!” I swear, that is exactly what I thought. And the second I answered the phone, I could tell there was a different ring to her voice like she was going to tell me something …
So here we are today. Doesn’t Courtney look incredibly amazing? I still can’t believe this gorgeous momma is carrying two babies in there <3
So happy for you guys and so excited to meet these little angels in a couple weeks!!!! It’s going to be super fun (& a workout, haha) to photograph all these babies milestones and I’m looking forward to every single second of it!
Meantime, here are several of my faves from Courtney, Ty and Jackson’s Maternity Session…Njoy!
