John Lennon once said “life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans”. Nothing could be more appropriate for how little Ellery decided to enter the world. While we had planned on a late summer maternity shoot out on Jenn & Blakely’s farm, when I got a call that Jenn was having a few challenges with her pregnancy, we pushed up the shoot and chose a different location. It’s a good thing we did, because less than a week later Ellery decided she couldn’t wait any longer and arrived 9 weeks early! She’s a strong girl, with two incredibly loving parents. She’s healthy and doing just fine, and Jenn is an inspiring mom. It’s hard enough having a newborn, and she’s handled Ellery’s surprise arrival with a tremendous amount of grace.
