Corey & Chris & Robert

032014_19How do I even begin to describe the incredible love between Corey and Chris?  I am very lucky to have the pleasure of photographing my friends as they wait for their amazing creation to arrive.  They are two of the most beautiful souls that I have ever known and their affection for one another, and for their baby, is divine love.  Corey’s peaceful spirit is inspirational, to say the least, and Chris’ adoration for his lady is genuinely gorgeous.   We ended the photo shoot in their beautiful nursery, fully out-fitted with Corey’s artwork.  You must go check out www.coreysolinger.com right now!  

Their home is warm, inspired, and calm which obviously made for a fantastic shoot!  Chris, also a photographer, has been documenting Corey’s pregnancy by photographing her in front of their chalkboard, the numbered week written at belly-height, which you will see below.  You will see also that Corey, at 39 weeks pregnant, has taken on a large puzzle as her pass-time to distract her mind (brillliant!).  

She steeps her tea patiently.  He talks to her belly, and listens to their baby’s heartbeat.
