She sat behind in my Earth Science our freshmen year. She also passed out on the lab tables one day & scared me to death (but that is a story for a different day). She gave me her crutches as a Christmas gift-decorated with all our inside jokes! We invented our own language during Mrs. Hartley’s geometry class. We took our lifeguarding class together, trying to keep a straight face while learning CPR, and continued to work together for a couple summers. We sang Van Morrison together and had many heart-to-hearts over the years. We’ve been there for each other through break-ups, difficult times in college, family crisis, and so much more. And I believe I was the first one she called after meeting Mac! She relived the story—of how she cat-called out to him on Colley Ave.- and now he is her husband :)
So, you can imagine how amazing it was for me to be able to take her maternity portraits. She is stunningly beautiful. And I was swooning over all the gorgeous colors in/around their house. Whitney’s outfit perfectly matched baby’s nautical nursery & the photo shoot was topped off when Mac, officer in the Coast Guard, came home from work…in his navy blue uniform! I LOVE the Sumner family & cannot wait to meet baby Grady (and tell him lots of crazy stories about his mother!)
Ok, how beautiful is she?!
I love you Whitney!!
