I met "Coffee" when we worked at Starbucks together. Her first name is actually Melissa, but we already had about 4 Melissas working at the store, and with a surname like Coffee when you work at a coffee shop, it was an inevitable nickname. She married Cody the weekend before my husband and me, and now has a baby girl on the way.
That baby girl is due any day now, and for that matter, she hasn't posted on facebook in almost a day, so the baby could've already arrived! Oh, nope. She just posted and I presume something like that would've been mentioned.
We met up about a week ago for some last minute maternity photos of the beautiful Momma-to-be, and some with Dad as well.
They happened to pick one of the sunniest days I've seen all winter. It was still right around the freezing point though, so I don't know how they were surviving without jackets! I was definitely all bundled up.
I wanted to get some profile shots of Coffee's sweet pregnant tummy when baby started throwing a fit! I could literally see the fists shooting out while I was looking through my lens. That's one feisty girl you two have coming your way.
So sweet. Melissa was very concerned about whether or not Cody was smiling "weird", but I think the boy did just fine.
There's the bamboo thicket popping up again. I can't help that it's one of the only bits of greenery around in January!
Time for some solo shots of miss Coffee.
Favorite shot, right up there. The colors, the leaf, the light, and best of all, that beautiful belly.
I know their daughter will one day go, "Ewwww, muuushy" at the sight of this photo. Or maybe that was just my weird habit regarding any signs of affection.
The idea here was for Coffee to make a heart with her hands although it wound up as more of a triangle. I still think it's adorable with their hands around baby's home (but not for much longer!).
I know these two are going to make great parents.
The best of luck to both of you with the birth and beyond. That little girl is going to change your lives in all the best ways!
