Selina & Ryan *and soon-to-be Sophia Renee

"P r i n c e s s " I typed into the "to" field of my email. Up popped Selina's email address.
That was back in August of 2008.
Our first shoot together was their engagement photos -- where I learned just how high Ryan could jump o.m. g.-- then wedding photos and day-after photos and a year and a half later I should show no surprise that I get an email from her yet again,
"Ryan and I have a baby on the way!!!!"

Think: cupcakes and pink. Did I mention cupcakes?
"I'm pregnant" she told Ryan.
"And it's going to be a girl" he said.
And her daddy said.
And I said.

Perhaps deep down we were all wishing Ryan could have another little Selina to spoil so.
We were right and her name is Sophia Renee.
If ever I've seen a little girl loved before she was born, I only have to watch the way Ryan leans down to Selina's belly and whispers in almost a song: S o p h i a.
It's a beautiful site to see.
