Beat Michigan. And have a baby. Columbus Maternity Photography

Reece and James.  Expecting.

This “ring shot” makes me think of their wedding.  Do you remember?  All Tiffany themed and fabulous. 
Hands down.  Session fave.  Reece, you are seriously glowing.  SO BEAUTIFUL!
I asked James and Reece if they had any props they wanted to use for the session.  James told me he had a bunch of MICHIGAN stuff along with an outfit change.  And the other outfit was MICHIGAN COLORS.  WHAT?!

I took this photo shortly after I told them the session had to stop RIGHT NOW.  I don’t photograph Michigan fans.  
But…I gave in…

As much as it kills me to say this (as I’m a BUCKEYE, not a Michigan fan)  this is ADORABLE.  James was laughing during these photos because he kept saying, “I know you are going to ridicule me on your blog for this!”  Yes, James. I am.  Michigan fans smell like duck droppings.  There you go.  That’s all I got. 

Michigan fans = big babies. Here’s proof…
Cutest little baby bump.  (Even if it’s covered with Michigan colors.)Group picture!  And I love the reflection in my car.  Yay for self timers!

Congrats, Reece and James!  I’m super excited to meet that little man.  Xoxo!

How long have you been together/married?
We’ve been together for four years…but it feels like 14. Lol

Tell us something fun or unique about your relationship.
We met in high school and didn’t like each other at all. James was a jock and I was the overly involved (sports, clubs, plays, etc) honors student.

Tell us how you found out you were expecting.
I found out by closely following the calendar. A week later I surprised James with the news at a restaurant which included gifts and help from the waiters.

What’s your favorite thing about being pregnant? Least favorite?
Favorite: Special treatment from friends, family and strangers,
Least Favorite: Traveling restraints and diet regimen

If you know the gender/name and story behind the name and would like to share it, tell us.
We’re having a boy and he’ll be named after his dad, James as the III. We actually refer to him by his nickname, which is Ox. Ox means the third in Mayan and the Mayan civilization is where I traveled to a few years ago to study abroad. The experience was life changing.

Is there a nursery or shower theme you’d like to share?
The shower theme is “Our Little Prince” and we’re decorating with royal blue and gold everything as well as customizing all banners, napkins, and balloons with Ox’s name and an image of a vintage regal crown. The nursery will be decorated in earth tone colors with artwork, prints and images of Mayan temples and such.

A baby is coming! What are you looking forward to the most?
What and/or whom he’ll look like 🙂

How did you find Crystal Jo?

    These are absolutely amazing! I love the style and the love than can be seen in ever shot. The wedding photos were great, so I love that the Williams’ kept the same photographer. I live in Maryland, but would 100% consider Crystal for those special times in life. I love how Reece and James have chronicled this journey. As someone that is away, I feel like I have truly been apart of this journey.

    Love you all!
