Nikki and I have know each other for a long time. She is an all-american, fun-loving girl who I looked up to when I was younger. She had the little red volkswagon convertible in high school that I drooled over and secretly coveted. I would probably have hated her if she wasn't so darn nice and so much fun to be around.
Nikki, or "Nicole" (her grown-up name) is having a baby boy in December!
Nikki and her husband Steve live in the LA area now, but were in town for her baby shower at her sister's amazing house in downtown Geneva. Her sister, Kristy (a post of pics of her and her little family coming soon) has a little boy too, so Nikki's guy will have already have a playmate from birth.
My personal fave.
See the hoops I make people jump through? :D This was technically my second time meeting Steve, but my first time actually getting to know him. His personality is so sincere and genuine. He is just an all around nice guy.
September is such an unpredictable month for weather in Chicago...we were all sweltering in the heat by the end of our session, but we had such a good time and got them done in record time. Nikki was totally up for anything, it was great.
Nikki and Steve, I had such a good time with you both. It was great to catch up with you and thank you for letting me document this amazing time in your life. Get ready, your lives will change in ways you never thought possible :) but it is worth it. I can't wait to meet your little guy. Steve, I definitely am taking you up on the offer to teach me to surf. When can I come out to visit? ;)
