Sometimes things just don’t turn out the way you planned. A lovely young lady who is expecting her first child within a couple of weeks asked me to take some photos of her and her husband. She had a Pinterest board full of ideas and samples of other “mums-to-be” striking poses in sunlit meadows and framed by a setting sun. As is often the case, the weather did not cooperate and we were served up a gray and foggy afternoon. Again, as is often the case, the images turned out to be completely unique for her, different from the others, and very beautiful. We just gotta play the cards we’re dealt, and many times the result is just perfect.
