It was the coldest day in January thus far in Orlando, Florida and Sandra was due to pop any moment. Rushing to capture her maternity of her first son, Connor, before he arrived, Sandra, her fiancé, Matt, and I ventured into the cold at Cypress Grove Park. We were in no way prepared for the brisk cold that hit us as soon as we exited our vehicles. Matt and Sandra bundled up under their blanket and braced for impact. Matt slowly started stealing the blanket for himself and Sandra was a trooper.
I first met Matt when I started my personal training at Art of Fitness in Dr. Phillips in April of 2017. Matt was always dressed in either Superman or Batman pants. Being the huge superhero fan that I am, I knew we would get along just fine, though there was a Marvel vs DC rivalry going on. Matt showed up dressed to the nines for his session, however! Matt was not my trainer, but he was always around when I was there and constantly cracking jokes. It did not surprise me at all when I asked them to be “bellybutton to bellybutton” that Matt bent down and took it literally.
When Matt told me about Sandra’s pregnancy and that she did not have a chance to have her portraits done, I knew I had to help! Sandra is a gorgeous mom to be and it is so important to document your first pregnancy as it is something you will remember forever. Both the amazing moments and the not so flattering ones. I cannot wait to see what comes of their family’s future together. It is going to be a blast having another little one at the studio! Matt’s son Liam is often helping out there, and one day Connor will be too. Little Connor is being stubborn and has not arrived yet, but he should be here any day now! Congratulations Matt and Sandra!
