She said that she wanted some new family photos. I recommended that we wait until fall when the temps are a bit cooler. She said how does next week work for you? Um…… okay. So fall is out then. We planned it for the following Saturday.
After a while of shooting, her husband asked if she wanted him to get the thing they made out of the car. I had no idea what was happening. He brought back a board and asked me where he should put it. I told him I didn’t know because I wasn’t quite sure what it was. Then he turned it around.
It took a minute for it to sink in for me. But when it did I gave her a big hug and started to cry. You see, she is a friend of mine and I see her daily because we work together at our church daycare. I had no idea! The last I knew, they were done having children. Yep! She lied to me. She said that she always wanted more but didn’t want people bugging her on when the next one would come. I guess her strategy worked.
Needless to say, fall would have been a little late to share the news, which is why it happened sooner. Thankfully, the morning we chose was not blistering hot or muggy so it all worked out perfectly!
