I met Christie for the first time when we were both attending university in 2008 and we’ve been friends ever since! She was a bridesmaid in our wedding a few years ago and the year before that, I photographed her wedding to Dan. Earlier this year, they made the move from Langley to Kelowna. We happened to be in Kelowna for a weekend in June with friends and it was nice to see Christie & Dan again. The two couples we went with, both of the wives were pregnant, then there was Randy and I and Christie and Dan. Christie asked me, ‘Does being around so many of your pregnant friends make you want to be pregnant?’ I said ‘Nope! Not right now! Haha!’ I knew Christie and Dan were looking to start a family soon-ish… and when Christie texted me a couple months later to say, ‘We’re pregnant!’ turns out she already knew she was when she asked me that question. There were four couples there for dinner and three of them were pregnant, not just the two. ;)
Christie and Dan were making a visit to Langley this past weekend and scheduled a portrait session with me to capture this beautiful time in their lives. The weather held out for us, with just a little bit of rain and we have so many gorgeous fall colours kickin’ around still in certain areas of Langley. Another awesome part to this session – one of Christie’s closest friends, her roommate in University, happens to be due only a week after Christie! Rebecca and her husband Jori dropped by for a few photos as well, which you can see at the bottom of this post.
Christie’s sister made this dress for Christie! Isn’t the colour great?
And a few of Christie and Rebecca together…
This is one of my favourites.
