Britney grew up in the Inland Empire, but currently lives in Los Angeles, so I was very surprised when she applied for my Little Love Stories campaign. But she assured me that she visits the area frequently and would love to do her maternity session out here.
We had her beautiful session in Oak Glen with her husband Jacob and I thoroughly enjoyed working with them. They are such a fun-spirited couple with genuine love for each other and their little bundle of joy.
This baby boy will be their first child! He did not come right away or very easily- they waited for him for almost a year. They told me that they would love to have photos to look back at this pregnancy. They have been together since high school (2007) and have waited quite a while to finally start their family.
Their pregnancy journey was mostly amazing. In the beginning they had a scare and they didn’t know if their baby boy would make it. Thankfully he was safe and sound and already at 34 weeks at the time of her session. Britney shared about being pregnant with their first child in her own words: "I never expected for this pregnancy to impact my marriage like it has. It has unlocked a new level of love and romance we’ve never had before. My husband looks at me like a little light of hope and it melts me". And I truly saw the way that Jacob looked at her during their session.
"I’ve waited so long for this little life. I’ve dreamed of him and prayed for him long before he was even a little apple-seed and I just can’t wait to finally meet him. Although, I feel a little bittersweet about finally having him. This pregnancy has just been us. With him growing in my belly and I talk to him and feel him...I get to have him all to myself. Soon I’ll have to share! I know that sounds weird, but it’s true".
When she thinks of the future of their child, all Britney wants for him is happiness. She wants to give him the endless beautiful memories of childhood like she had. And for him to watch her husband become the father she knows he was so perfectly meant to be.
Britney says this to other expecting mothers: "Keep your head up. It’s not easy and beautiful every day and that’s okay. Cherish those easy and beautiful moments to look back on when life throws you a curve-ball".
We wish Britney & Jacob beautiful happiness in this journey with baby Leo & can't wait to see them flourish as parents!
