I attended Brooke and Ryan’s unseasonably cold and rainy August wedding in 2007 and had a blast. I found it beautifully ironic that we shot their maternity photos at the same place they got married. The stair case they are sitting in for some photos? That’s where Brooke walked down the ‘aisle’ to meet Ryan to promise forever. They are the perfect match; complimenting each other better than anyone else I know.
Now, they are a month or less away from adding a third member to their family. Sure, they have two energetic dogs, but now, a baby is weeks away from making its big debut. They don’t know what they are having, and I know they [and I!] are so excited to find out.
Ryan is deploying this fall with the Army, so if you could keep him, Brooke and their little one in your prayers over the next year, that would be so appreciated. Both by me, and by them.
Brooke and Ryan, thanks for asking me to do this session for you guys. I value your friendship and I can’t wait to meet your little one. Brooke, I am looking forward to some girls nights in the upcoming months to help pass the deployment time for you. xoxo, Laura
