Generally, I photograph maternity sessions in the 8th month, but in Aniquia's anticipation, she emailed me in her 6th month to tell me she was ready. So, there has been a waiting period for her, but it was worth the wait. I document a lot of maternity sessions, but this one with her and John was both emotional and tons of fun. Emotional because I could see what proud parents-to-be Aniquia and John have become and fun because it was a photographic production that involved a cast of players that not only included Aniquia and John, but also my daughter Dana and Krystal Cordo (Aniquia's make-up artist). In past blogs I've shown you a few images I created of Krystal during one of Aniquia's clothing changes.
Congratulations, Aniquia and John! I'm looking forward to John Jr.'s first portrait session.

During a recent maternity session Krystal Cordo came along as the make-up artist. Aside from her impeccable makeup skills I was captivated by her hair style. So, during my client's wardrobe change I coaxed Krystal into standing in front of the camera while I created a few images of her. Instantly, I knew she was model material. Check out the "quickie" images I took of her, and "yes" you can expect to see future images of Krystal in another blog.

kids are going to look like. You're a gorgeous couple.
The significance of the event was special to us because we initially got married on our lunch breaks while I was serving in the U.S. Air Force and stationed in Little Rock, Arkansas. At that original ceremony there were only five of us in attendance at the base chapel and not one photograph was taken during that special day. Often when I’m consulting with prospective brides I inform them that their wedding portraits are NOT for them. Their photographs are for their children and family and will become future keepsake memories. I truly wanted to have similar memories preserved for my children and family. After all, it is about family.
To wrap this up, I’m not certain about anyone else, but I had a great time and look forward to our 50th Anniversary! Woo-hoo!!
Accompanying this blog are all the page layouts from our album. It was unique selecting the images that I liked and then designing the pages for myself and Eddie Mae.

A special thanks goes out to all our family and friends who help make the night a wonderful event that Eddie Mae and I will treasure forever. Finally, although I forgot to extend my gratitude and appreciate during the toast, I want to thank Dana for all the hard work she spent planning EVERYTHING for the occasion. (Can’t wait to see my credit card bill). And, a big “thank you” goes to Fred for the awesome framed canvas portrait that you gave us as a gift the following day. It’s the BEST portrait we’ve ever had created, and now I can say: “I have a “Brinson””.
