FIRST BABY MATERNITY SESSION | MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN | THE DUDZINSKI FAMILY

I really think that my friends are magicians sometimes when they begin to tell stories and I look back on the event only to realize they are right. I wouldn't admit that too many times because obviously, they knew they were pregnant. Thus, starts the story and adventure of finding out that two of my very special and close friends were expecting their first child. 

INSERT TWO OF MY VERY FAVORITE PEOPLE COMING TO CHICAGO FOR DINNER AND DRINKS. ALSO, TAKE NOTE OF WHAT KELLY DOES IN THE NEXT FEW LINES THAT MAKE YOU REALLY WONDER HOW MUCH ATTENTION YOU ARE GIVING TO YOUR SURROUNDINGS.

While out for dinner we all order drinks and Kelly excuses herself to the restroom. When she gets back we all cheers and go about ordering food. We have a wonderful time at dinner and we head back home to play a classic game of Rack-O! Kelly opens some wine while the guys enjoy some beers and I have a cocktail. The night grows late and we all retire to bed (most of us, anyways).

FAST FORWARD A FEW MONTHS LATER AND I GET A VERY EXCITING PHONE CALL FROM KELLY...

She proceeds to tell me that she is pregnant and she found out THAT day they were coming to Chicago! Now you're thinking...but the drinks? Well, Kelly tells me how she had to tell the waitress on her way to the restroom that she was pregnant and asked her to switch her drink out. I didn't suspect a thing! Then at home, she drank the 'wine'. That 'wine' was actually non-alcoholic that she poured into a regular wine bottle! HOUDINI! I told you! :) 

KELLY AND DAN OPTED FOR A COZY HOME MATERNITY SESSION AND WE VENTURED INTO AN ADORABLE DOWNTOWN AREA FOR SOME MORE LOVELY PHOTOS.

I will never forget the story of before they told anyone they were pregnant and it makes me appreciate all of it a bit more knowing that they were able to pull this off. To tie everything together I just know what amazing parents these two will be. This session is one of my favorites just seeing the joy they both have for their new baby and the anticipation as they await the arrival. Ziggy can't wait to be a big sister! Their love is so strong and they are partners in every step of the way. What a very lucky child to have these two as his/her parents. Take a look at how we started and ended our weekend with their cozy, in-home maternity session that led us outdoors to explore.

WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU, BABY D.
