Yet another fabulous expecting couple who rolled right with the change of plans because of the wicked cold & wind on Saturday.

While I hadn’t met Jennifer yet, her family has already touched me and been apart of things very important to me.  I first met Jennifer’s sweet niece, who is a CDH survivor, at St. Louis Children’s Hospital when I photographed her and others effected by CDH.  More here and here.

And I’ve also been with her sister who works in the NICU as I’ve photographed some last moments for families for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, we’ve cried together and I have such huge respect for the work she does.

So I was so excited to meet Jennifer, and she was as gentle and sweet as I’d imagined.  Beautiful inside and out.  So sweet, you can’t really hate her for being so gorgeous!  With the most perfect baby bump.

oh yeah, and Scott was there too… and put up with us all giving him a hard time, and showing off his dead pan dry sense of humor.

um, did I say she was GORGEOUS!?!  STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS.  Yeah.  She is. Totally.

Thanks again, Brinker Family!  Can’t wait to meet your little girl…. and most of all, find out her name!
