Pregnancy Surprise | St Charles-IL

Family, Maternity, Newborns


I was so excited to be a part of a pregnancy surprise of a lifetime for this sweet couple!  When Kristina contacted me to photograph her sharing her exciting news with her husband Matt, I was all in!  🙂  When we met, Matt thought that they were just coming out to have a couple shoot.  We started our session with a few close shots to break the ice.  They are such an adorable couple!

After snapping a few shots of the two of them, Kristina pulled out 2 framed chalkboards.  I asked them both to write something special that they wanted the other one to know.  It could be something simple, sweet, funny…anything.  Here’s where the fun begins!  Kristina wrote her surprise announcement out on her chalkboard, and Matt started making a list of all of the things he loves about Tina.  We giggled a little because I think if we had given him the time, he could have filled his entire board.  🙂

Once they finished writing, I asked them to keep their boards hidden and stand back to back.  Then on the count of 3, they would turn around and show each other what they wrote.  pregnancy surprise, St Charles-IL-Photographerpregnancy surprise, St Charles-IL-Photographer

Once they turned around, it took a minute for Matt to realize what he was reading, but his reaction was priceless!  I was clicking as fast as I could!  I love that he just threw his board in the air!  🙂pregnancy surprise, St Charles-IL-Photographerpregnancy surprise, St Charles-IL-Photographerpregnancy surprise, St Charles-IL-Photographerpregnancy surprise, St Charles-IL-Photographer
