Kiki & Andrei: Family Photoshoot

June 9th, 2011

“What about that one??… The one way in the back with the shaved head?” I quizzically asked my friend many, many summers ago. Of course, we were referring to a boy and –wait for it– this conversation of checking out boys? Took place in church on a Sunday. And that boy? Singing in the choir. Mom, I promise you did a better job raising me. Yes, I’m sure God was less than thrilled with my teenage years. Kiki shook her head as she replied “nah, too young”. Only what she didn’t know was that he wasn’t as young as she had thought and soon enough, Andrei was the one doing the checking out… of Kiki.

They dated and had one of the most beautiful relationships I had ever had the joy of seeing. Their love was that young, head over heels, match your outfits, and doodle all over your paper, kind of love. When they got married and recited their vows, I held onto Adi’s hand and wiped away tears as they promised to always be each other’s best. Today, they are both in med school, waiting for their first child to arrive (any day now!!), and still have that carve-your-initials-in-a-tree kind of love. It was such a joy and honor to be able to capture that love in the most beautiful stage of life and I couldn’t be more thrilled for our friends.

Kiki and Andrei, this goes without saying, but we love you. No, like really. And we can’t wait to meet the lil’ guy! Enjoy your photos, and happy Thursday everyone!

Is that not the cutest baby ever? The way I see it, if the bump’s that cute, the baby’s gotta be…

See, I told you! With parents like this, that baby’s gonna be such a stud…Kiks, you make Andrei’s heart swoon. Ok, and mine. ;)
Daddy and baby G were having an adorable moment and I was happy to capture it.Did I mention that she was one month away from being full term when we did this shoot? Who even looks like that at 8 months? Kiki, that’s who. Oh, you. You gorgeous thing you.  A blurry mistake that I love.There’s that doodle all over your paper kind of love that I love so much about these two…
