When I first me Haleigh for her Maternity session at the Mineola Nature Preserve, I thought she was the quintessential Southern Woman. She’s gorgeous, has beautiful hair and a very pretty voice, that is warm and drawn out. Sort of like molasses on a warm day or smoke drifting through a field.
Her husband Matt is super sweet with her daughter Eliza, and you can see that she loves him immensely. When I introduced myself to Miss Eliza, she had just about a million things to tell me! She is so cute & super excited to tell you all the little things going on in her life. Haleigh & Matthew are expecting their second child (Lincoln) any moment now!
I am just loving my clients name choices for their kids lately! There are some good names in the South!
It was funny, when I asked her how they chose the name Lincoln, she said it was actually from a TV show… anyone remember Prison Break? It has been a LONG time since we’ve seen it, but when she said it, I immediately remembered. She told me when they first heard the name on the show, they loved it.
Haleigh told me that when she met Matt, exactly three years ago, they were only able to see each other on the weekends, as he lived in Dallas and she was still in East Texas. Haleigh was considering a move into the Dallas area, and Matt was planning to ask her THE question, (he had designed her ring and was about to pop the question!) when they found out she was pregnant!
Eventually they decided to make their home in East Texas, close to family while raising their children.
Lincoln’s nursery is in honor of Haleigh’s surf-loving father, and is decorated in a range of blues (navy & mint) and grey.
