Roni & Rick: their baby boy

Three and a half years into their marriage, and they finally birthed a healthy baby boy.

I can picture Rick as a "dad," but I am still having issues with my little sweet Miss O as a mother.  Why do I feel as if she is my child?

The three of us were trying to get together again for another pregnancy shoot to take advantage of the fall colors and to get some city-scape images as well as park/foliage settings.  However, 1.5 hours before they were supposed to be here, Rick contacted me to say, "Um, we can't make it.  Roni is starting her labor."

Roni's birth was an "EVENT."  The two labored at home in the shower for a while before moving that process to a shower stall at Prentice. Eventually, she moved her labor to the hospital bed.

She labored everywhere.

Roni & Rick: Pregnant

I hadn't spoken or seen Roni & Rick in a VERY long time.  Maybe since January at another wedding they referred me to?

But on August 4th of this year, Roni wrote me an email saying,

"hi mr. w.
it's your favorite. little miss o.
well, not so little right now because I'm 30 weeks preggers. THIRTY. THIRTY! THIRTY!?"

This was something I needed to see.  She is already so tiny and compact, so I was curious about how she was carrying around a baby in her stomach area.

Roni & Rick have it down.  They know responsibility, respect, patience and commitment.  After 3 years of building a stronger foundation they decided it was time to add a little person "to spill the love onto."  Considering Roni is an actress, she was not in town much.  So this did make things a little difficult.  Obviously in the end, they figured things through.

Roni & Rick’s Wedding

Last week I posted Roni & Rick's engagement session.  Posting two of this couple will feature their wedding. 

Roni was working the box office at IO (formerly Improve Olympic) when Rick came in and tried to finagle a free ticket (which he claims he should have received). He never got past the entrance mainly because he spent the entire night talking about everything with Roni.

At the end of her shift, she asked him if he wanted to finish the conversation over coffee and cake at the Pick Me Up. At 3:30am, they were asked to leave. But that didn't stop the two from moving the conversation to their car. Eventually, all good things must come to an end. And they said their goodbyes. No kiss. No numbers were exchanged. The two just hoped they would see each other again around IO.
