It isn’t every day that you get to shoot one of your good friends. It isn’t every day that she happens to be pregnant, either.

I’ve known Ashley Joll (née Wallace, AHH! Life is unfolding right before our eyes!) for years now; she first showed up to one of my dodgeball games in a neon pink tank top or something (neon for sure), fresh off the plane from New York City, big smile, blonde locks, and all.

Nearly four years later, and not much has changed. Unless you count being married and pregnant major changes, psh!

Over the course of the last few years, we have seen each other through relationship after relationship (read: drama after drama), had our frequent one-on-one catchups, partied together, not partied together, and watched friends come and go. My vault, and someone who I adore tremendously, Ashley has always been someone I clicked with instantly and knew I would love from the get-go, no matter what the circumstances. So you can imagine my delight when she told me that she and Barnaby (who she just married last week!) were having a BABY.

One pizza ring and several months later, it would finally be time to shoot AW’s ever-growing bump. It’s been an incredible journey to watch her go from love interest to girlfriend to fiancée, and now wife…and in just a few weeks’ time, she will be a new mommy. Seriously, where does the time go? And where is the slo-mo button for LIFE?

Thank you to my darling Smashley (I miss you, have your baby already so you can drink with me again!) for asking me to capture your beautiful little (er…big) belly and for the awesomely un-cheesy shoot at Casa de Joll.

Love you to the moon and back, can’t wait to meet Mini-Blondie!
