Gris called me at the last minute for a maternity shoot and I was thrilled. We decided on Veterans' Oasis because of the variety of backdrops. This baby girl is due next week and I found out that Daddy is getting 16 weeks of paternity leave. Wow. That's amazing! Mama is getting 16 weeks off too. I remember when I had to go back to the classroom after my first born was 4 months. I remember that feeling. I requested a leave of absence and I was denied. I was so upset. Anyway, I love that they both get 16 weeks off together. To see the full gallery click here.
