I met Lindsey at a clothing shoot a few years ago with another photographer and now she’s pregnant with her third child, a little girl. I’ve been watching her updates on social media, as this pregnancy has taken an absolute toll on her. She found out she has lyme disease, isn’t able to stand for too long, passes out regularly, and has been going in and out of the hospital. I reached out to her and wanted to give her memories of her pregnancy that she would be able to look back on and love forever. No one should have to look back at their pregnancy and only remember the pain that they went through.
Last week I went to her house and we shot together. She brought me into her house in Viera, which was beautifully decorated with Disney memorabilia and family photos. This was a family that cherishes memories.
Lindsey: “I really hope you’re able to figure out location and lighting. I know my house isn’t ideal.”
Me: *sees sun room, patio chairs with cushions, a hook in the ceiling, remembers trunk of car is a prop closet*
“Give me two seconds!”
The rest is magic.
