Expecting Baby Aniston | bellies

my  friends Ryan and Kelly are expecting their first baby in a few weeks… yes… you’re going to scroll back up to this sentence when you see how teeny she is.

a few weeks!!!!

kelly is a beautiful, gorgeous and glamourous mommy-to-be and asked me to photograph her. i was completely honored that she said “I truly couldn’t imagine ANYONE else that I would feel comfortable with or even WANT to take my pictures! ” it made me tear up and think all sorts of sweet and mushy thoughts about our friendship and the amount of trust she gave me!

then she shows up. all skinny. and glamourous. and cellulite-free. and all i could do was… hate her and tell  her frequently that she was “gross!”

true story. just look at her.

all joking aside… ryan and kelly are so excited to be welcoming their baby girl, Anniston, to their family soon!

mDKellykelly – thank you for stepping outside your comfort zone to capture the true beauty of this time in your life.  i hope that you look back on these photos years from now and see how much you glow and radiate. i am so so sooooo thankful to call you a friend. but twice as appreciative that you included me in these moments of your emerging family! you are stunning. and breathtaking. i have every confidence that the ease you have in maternity will carry through to motherhood. you were chosen by God to be the mother to this precious little girl! i couldn’t be more excited or happy for you!

Kelly Hicks-Drees - Oh my goodness, Chriselda! I am SO honored to have had you take these pictures to celebrate and document this exciting time in our lives! Thank YOU for making it fun yet warm and special for Ryan and I. Even though I did step out of my “comfort zone” a little for some of the pictures…if it weren’t for YOU and your ability to make me feel comfortable…there’s no way I could have done it! So THANK YOU again my dear friend! You will always have a special place in my heart! :-) XOXO!!!
