meeting lotus

In January of 2009, I met one of the most beautiful people I probably will ever know. Chantel Jiroch is a model and she’s gorgeous but she is also one of the most down to earth women as well. Anytime I am with her in public, literally she has people telling her just how beautiful she is. I don’t know how she keeps her feet on the ground 🙂
This is a couple of pictures from our first time shooting in Miami. [Jan 2009]

the eyes have it
So you can imagine that when she told me she was pregnant, I *jumped* at the chance to take her maternity pictures. These were taken in August 2009.

I couldn’t have asked for a better session!
chantel, simple
I really was hoping to be at the birth of Lotus but wasn’t able to fly down to Miami. Recently, Chantel & Kawai were up in my part of town with the baby, so I scooped up Gabriella & Aliyah and we headed over to see them. They were hanging out with my good friends, Dwayne & Kara Casteel.

one happy family!

How could two beautiful people produce anything but a gorgeous child?

My hopes are that Lotus and Chantel come to stay in Atlanta soon so that I can document this little one’s life for the first few years. I’m sure they are going to have some fun times ahead of them!

Love you guys! xoxo
