I have been photographing Michael & Courtney’s journey for a few years now. When they called to tell me they needed to schedule a session for their pregnancy announcement I almost passed out from excitement. Michael was getting ready to deploy and they were almost positive that he would not be home in time for their baby’s arrival. We got the announcement photos done quickly so they could announce to their families that they were expecting a sweet little babe. A week later Michael started his deployment.
About a month into the deployment they found out they were expecting a little girl (called it)! A couple of more months went by and Courtney assured everyone that even though Michael was so far away their bond was strong as ever.
And then they got the news…
Michael was coming home early. For good. He made it home two weeks before Stella made her grand entrance.
