Oh this sweet family has such a special place in our hearts!! 💕 Shayna & Brandie grew up together, so as you can imagine, seeing her family grow is incredibly beautiful…and having the honor to capture this season of life for them was pure magic!! ✨ Photographing these happy in love parents, proud big sis and that perfect belly was THE BEST!! Congrats on the new little babe, Richardson fam!! We love you!!😍

Read more about this sweet fam & enjoy a few of these magical photos below!

What is the due date for the baby?!

“September 7, 2021”

How did the happy parents meet?

“We technically met in 6th grade, but didn’t start dating until we were 19 and in college.”

Where did each parent-to-be grow up?

“We both grew up in Rockport.”

What has mom craved the most during pregnancy?

“Any and everything spicy – especially jalapeño dips and banana pepper pizza. The spicier the better these last 9 months!”

What was the first thing you two did when you found out you were expecting?

“After going through our miscarriage in October, getting a positive pregnancy test on Christmas Day felt surreal, scary, and also pretty magical. Chances are pretty good that tears were shed and a lot of hoping began. It was truly the best Christmas Day we’ve ever had.”

What was the first thing you bought for the baby?

“A zip up sleeper with a fox print, just as we did with Eleanor. With both pregnancies, after the first viability ultrasound, we went to Target and bought a gender neutral sleeper with foxes on it. (We saw a fox themed movie for our very first date, so we have a thing for foxes!)”

What was each parent-to-be’s first word?

“Shayna – Dada / Marty – not 100% sure, but thinking either Mama or no”

What’s been your favorite memory of pregnancy thus far?

“Finding out his gender just the two of us and then being able to surprise our friends and family! With Eleanor, we did a big party reveal where we didn’t know until everyone else did. This time, we found out during the anatomy scan, just the two of us. We then went and bought the first set of boy clothes afterward. It was the best secret we got to keep to ourselves for a little while!”

Who is more likely to get up in the middle of the night with the baby?

“If it’s like it was with Eleanor, it’ll be both of us. Marty will get up to change Nicholas’s diaper, I will feed him, and then Marty will stock up my water bottle and snack stash.”

Who will be more nervous when labor starts?

“If labor started spontaneously at home, I suspect Marty would be more nervous just making sure we make it to the hospital without having a baby in the car!”

Which parent is more likely to enforce the rules?!

“That is 100% me. Marty has a huge soft spot for Eleanor, which I can only guess will be the same with Nicholas. I’m much more of a type A personality with a solid schedule and routine.”

Which parent will the baby look like?

“Good question! Eleanor came out looking like a clone of Marty. Now, at 2.5 years, it varies who people think she looks like. We’ve heard anything from both of us to our parents to her Aunt Crystal. I have no idea who Nicholas will take after or if he’ll be a blend like his big sis!”

Who will change the most diapers?

“Depends – I stay at home with the kids all day while Marty works, but whenever Marty is home, he changes every diaper without fail. So I’d say we probably change an equal amount overall.”

Bonus Q: Is Eleanor excited for her new sibling?!

“Absolutely! She loves to point at my belly and tell people about her baby brother. She will run to me, when I’m sitting, and place her hand on my belly and wait for Nicholas to kick. We cannot wait to see her grow and blossom as a sweet big sister!”Richardson Maternity Session | Bret and Brandie | Evansville Photographers | @bretandbrandie-0001.jpg
