Cedar Falls Studio Maternity Photographer
It’s not often that you hear of high school sweet hearts staying together, but these two have the sweetest story.
Stephanie was a junior in high school and on the cheerleading squad. Shane was only a sophomore and a member of the baseball team. They started dating in February of 2007 and continued their relationship into college where again, Stephanie was a college cheerleader and Shane played baseball. The two got married in 2015 where I had the privilege of being Stephanie’s matron of honor.
Stephanie was a beautiful bride so it should be no surprise to you that she was all the more gorgeous when they found out they were expecting their first child, a little girl. Brooke would go on to be born during the same month that Shane and Stephanie celebrated being together 12 years.
I never doubted that Stephanie would be a wonderful mother. You see, Stephanie is my cousin and I have known her since birth (though I may not remember that because I was only 1.5 when she was born). She has always been kind and had a very gentle spirit about her. She was never the type to get angry or yell. These traits suit her well because she is now a kindergarten teacher where each group of students adore “Ms. Stephanie.”
And not only do her students adore her, but my daughters do. In fact, we don’t tell them that Stephanie is their second cousin once removed. She is known as “Aunt Stephanie” and we tell them that Brooke is their cousin.
It was an honor to take Stephanie and Shane’s maternity photos in this light and airy photography studio. She is wearing the Show Me Your Mumu Hacienda Dress in Sage Green, which is from my client wardrobe and included as an extra way of serving my clients.
