It’s a boy!
These beautiful first time parents-to-be, Samah and Mohammed, dropped a big one (or four) on friends and family, revealing in a blaze of blue smoke that they will welcome a baby boy in the winter. We shot their gender reveal and maternity session in downtown Chicago on a gloriously dapple-lit street. Confession: this wasn’t the first time I met Samah and Mohammed. After having driven over two hours into the city for our session, I discovered, upon arrival, that I had forgotten my camera. I’ll be the first to admit when I make a mistake, and fortunately for me, these two kind souls were so understanding that these things unfortunately happen and we rescheduled – a sure sign that they will be natural parents and can roll with the punches when even the best-laid plans go awry.
Congrats on your little bun in the oven!
