I was hanging out with some very close friends of mine, Nikki and Dave Jodat, about a month or so ago and got the mother-lode of awesome news dropped on me. Let me first begin with the backstory. Every Sunday, we have a get together that we have dubbed Triple D. Triple D stands for dinner, drinks and dominoes (I’m a domino addict and Nikki and Dave have picked up the game as well). About two months ago, one of the D’s was failing to make a Sunday appearance at what was supposed to be Triple D for Nikki. Dinner happened as planned, and we actually switch between dominoes and movies, so sometimes the third D stands for dramatic cinematics, which also happened as planned. There was, however, a lack of tasty alcoholic beverages. Of course, I was completely oblivious to this. About a month or so ago, I get a phone call from Nikki asking me to come over because they had some ideas for a potential photo shoot to run by me. Conveniently, they live right across the street from me so I headed on over. After a few minutes of catching up, Dave hands me a picture and says “We were thinking of something like this for the photo shoot…..”. I look a the picture and quickly realize that I’m looking at an ultrasound image. As I begin to connect the dots in my head, I look up with wide eyes and yell, “SHUT UP!!!!”. Nikki and Dave both start cracking up. Congrats were certainly in order as we excitedly chatted about the bun in the oven. They have been trying to get pregnant for a while now so I was, and still am, extremely happy for the both of them.
The thing is, the excitement didn’t end there. Turns out that another couple, Nikki’s cousin Corrine and Dave’s close friend, Dan are also expecting (they’re on little one #2). The kicker is, Nikki and Corinne have the EXACT same due date of December 2nd. With the excitement of all the buns in all the ovens around here, it was only fitting that they do a joint announcement. I was lucky enough to be able to shoot the pictures for that announcement. Dan and Corrine’s son Jason, who is absolutely adorable, made a couple of the shots way more fun than we anticipated. So, without further ado, I give you Nikki, Dave, Dan, and Corrine’s baby announcement pictures!
