This is the most meaningful maternity session I have done so far. Taryn is my oldest sister, and Robert is my brother in law. That is not the only part that makes this session special though. My sister and brother in law have tried for years to have a kid. That is pretty much all they wanted, wished, and hoped for. Some days it was hard, stressful, and sad because they did not understand why God was not giving them the one thing they wanted... They knew they wanted to be parents; they knew they would be amazing parents; and every friend and family member knew they would be AWESOME and AMAZING parents. After they almost lost hope... It happened!! We learned that sometimes God does everything at certain times and to never lose hope. When they announced the exciting news, that they were expecting to my family at our Grandmas house, it was a day none of us will forget. Then finding out the baby was a boy and his middle name was going to be Steven brought many tears to out eyes and feelings of joy.
I am very excited to have my nephew Elliot Steven in my life. I can not wait to spoil him, read to him, watch movies, take tons of photos, and always be there for him. I know my sister and Robert are going to give Elliot an amazing life full of love, happiness, and fun. They will guide him to grow up to be an amazing man and to do big things in his life. I am a very excited aunt, to watch him grow up along the way...
One of my favorite photos...They are just so happy!
ELLIOT STEVEN OVERMAN!
I did not really believe in that "pregnancy glow" stuff that people always say, until I took this photo...
The bump and special bracelet
If you have Robert in photos, you can not be serious the whole time...
I love this...because it is truly them!
Congratulations again Robert and Taryn! Thank you for having me do this session for you, it means a lot. I can't wait to take a million more as Elliot grows up. Get a ton of empty photo albums...you will need them!
I love you both (now all three) so much!
