If I’m being honest, I don’t remember the first time I met Patrick or Kelly. Why do I not remember, you ask? Not because they aren’t memorable or anything like that, because they totally are awesome people! But, I don’t remember because I met them at one of my many Crossfit classes. And, as anyone who partakes in Crossfit knows, class becomes a blur. You’re more worried about just getting through the wall balls, pull ups, or deadlifts than you are about the people around you! Am I right?! It’s just a little intense lol
You see, Patrick is one of the coaches at the gym I used to train at and Kelly, his wife, was another fellow crossfitter. After many classes, I got to know both of them, and eventually I even got to take their holiday photos! Not only are they amazing in front of the camera, but they are also so incredibly sweet! (Minus when Patrick makes you do endless amounts of burpees haha) So, when Kelly reached out saying she was pregnant and wanted me to take their maternity photos I was SO EXCITED! From the beautiful back drop, to the dreamy lighting, to Kelly’s amazing dresses, this Salt River maternity session is absolutely one of my favorites.
Kelly & Patrick, I am so incredibly excited for you guys to bring home that precious new baby girl! I know you will both be amazing parents, and I’m so honored that I was able to capture this big moment for you! I cannot wait to get you in front of the camera in the new year as a family of three!
