Sweet Gentry has graced us with his presence a few days early and we couldn’t be more excited! Being the Martins’ first child, it was super important to capture every moment of his life, especially his first 48 hours! I loved meeting him on Sunday at Winnie Palmer Hospital for his Fresh 48 session.
Suzi and Rob met at Stagger Inn, a country bar in downtown Orlando. Their first date was at the Strawberry Festival in Plant City where they had the best time! Rob was very open with Suzi from the beginning that he was interested in finding a wife and starting a family. The couple were married in Suzi’s hometown of LaBelle, Florida on November 29, 2014. Suzi moved to Orlando where Rob was from to work as a nurse. She received her Master’s degree as a Nurse Practitioner and works at Arnold Palmer Hospital for two Pediatric Craniofacial surgeons! Both of their parents live nearby and are so excited to have a grandson! Suzi’s parents have four daughters and three granddaughters, so a grandson is going to shake up their world. Suzi is so excited to become a mom and see Rob become a dad.
My dear friend, Madison, works with Suzi at Arnold Palmer Hospital and recently had her own little boy, Finley! Suzi contacted us asking for us to be a part of their newborn journey, and we couldn’t say no.
I received a text on Friday night saying that he wasn’t showing signs of being ready yet, and that Suzi would be induced on the 7th if he didn’t come on his own. Clearly, he was ready for photos because he made his appearance the next morning! Gentry entered the world on June 1, 2019, weighing 6 lbs 11 oz. Both sets of grandparents, as well as two of Suzi’s sisters and nieces were present for the occasion.
Check out Gentry’s first hours with his sweet parents below! Fresh 48 sessions are so important as newborns change so much. Gentry and the Martins will be back in a few weeks for his newborn session. We can’t wait to see how much he has grown!!
