Anastasia, Brandon, and Lincoln are about to have their world turned upside down with a new baby girl due in just over a month. And before they become a family of 4, they wanted to celebrate this short but precious time they’ve had together as a three-some. We met along the trails in Orangevale, near where they live, to capture Brandon and Lincoln’s simultaneous giggles, and Anastasia’s beautiful, pregnant glow.
It was the first of a new hot spell and the sun was pretty blazing along the pathways; unbelieveable to think that just a few weeks before, these rolling hills were lush and green. Little Lincoln started off in a cute khaki shorts and then – as you’ll see from the photos – progressively began to be disrobed as his cheeks got redder and his temper shorter (heck, I don’t blame him, the hot sun makes me cranky too!) Chubby thighs appeared and then, soon enough, he was in a diaper only, falling into his mommy, sweaty and exhausted from all our playing around. He really was scrumptious and I loved the way dad made him giggle while it was always mom he reached-out for when he wanted to disappear into a hug. It reminded me of the first couple of years of my own daughter’s life and how it felt like just yesterday and forever ago.
