I am so excited to be an aunt again! My younger brother and his wife are expecting a baby boy this April. He will be the first on that side of the family! My family is big into baseball. My brother has been working his way up through the Cardinal farm system as a talented left-handed relief pitcher. This year he made the 40-man roster and recently left for Spring Training in Florida (pitchers and catchers report sooner than the rest of the team to spring training). Baseball and a little newborn – what could be better for a fresh start this Spring? We had the chance to take a few images for their maternity session just before he left. Our studio has wonderful barn wood that reminded me of the old cow barn on my Grandmother’s dairy farm. And my brother who was born and raised in Kentucky – well he is a bit of a country boy. The bat and glove even have my brother’s name on them. Congrats to Dean and Jaq – I couldn’t be more excited to welcome a new teammate into our fun family! Auntie Brenda will be sure to teach him how to play board games when he is older!
