When I first talked on the phone with Melissa about her maternity portraits, I knew we were in for something fun when she mentioned the idea of bringing her firefighter husband’s turnouts to wear for some of her photographs. Well, even my greatest expectations were exceeded when we actually met the Beard’s and found out how fun (and gorgeous!) they are! They were both up for anything and were awesome in front of the camera. They even brought their 1st baby (a beautiful black lab) for some outdoor family shots. Can’t wait to meet their baby boy in a few weeks!
