Las Vegas Maternity Photography
Maternity is such an amazing thing. Therefore, having the opportunity to do some Las Vegas Maternity Photography is always incredible. Especially when it was with the wonderful couple Casey and Jose. They met in such a unique way. Casey went to Costa Rica to study abroad in 2008, and Jose was standing outside the airport with her name on a sign. Thus, he was the very first person that Casey met in Costa Rica. They got along so well together. Therefore, within a few weeks, they were dating. After living in Costa Rica for two years, Jose decided to come to Las Vegas. The couple got married in 2011, and have been enjoying their marriage ever since.
One thing on Casey’s “things to do before having a baby” list was to travel to Europe. Last year, they made this dream come true! So, Casey and Jose traveled to England, Spain, and Italy. Then, another dream of theirs came true. In March, Casey discovered she was expecting by simply taking pregnancy test she bought at the dollar store. Instead of showing Jose the results of the pregnancy test, Casey had another plan of how to tell Jose.
The Las Vegas Maternity Photography Shoot
Casey was so creative with the process. Therefore, she decided that she wanted Jose to find out they were expecting through a maternity photography shoot! She contacted me and explained her plan, and two days before the shoot she gave me two chalkboards. Then, on March 19th, 2017, at Exploration Peak Park, we had the photo shoot. In order to keep it a surprise, Casey told Jose that she won a photo session on the radio.
After taking a few shots, I mentioned that I brought a few props (the chalkboards that Casey had given me). So, I asked if the couple wanted to use them. They eagerly said yes. Then, I asked them each to write down 3 things that they loved about each other. In order to follow the plan, Jose went first. He wrote “smile, kind, selfless.” Casey went next, and she wrote “Va a ser papá,” which is Spanish for “you’re going to be a dad!” Jose was so shocked and happy! The couple is looking forward to this new adventure and I am so grateful that Casey reached out to me to be her Las Vegas Maternity Photographer.
