waiting… {Maryland Maternity Photographer}

July 21, 2009

when i was 14 years old, right before high school started, i had to attend marching band camp.  the bus pulled up, and i stepped inside… i was nervous… i didn’t know to many people.  i just wanted to sit down quickly.  score!  and empty seat next to a nice-enough looking girl.

“can i sit with you?”  the dreaded question.

“of course” and she slid over.

a friendship began… 15 years later… through boyfriends, proms, senior “day- trips”, colleges hundreds of miles apart, fiancee’s, weddings…

one of my oldest and best friends is about to become a mama herself.

I want to go back and have pictures done during my most favorite time, sadly they are 27, 25 and 20 so I think that ship has sailed.
