When Nicole found out she was pregnant with baby #5, she knew early on that naming the baby would be difficult. All of her children’s first names begin with the first letter of the previous sibling’s middle name. With big sister Maddie Elise (and her other big sister being named Erica), coming up with a third E name was going to be difficult!
And so, baby #5 was quickly nicknamed Hashtag #5.
And also quickly, the basketball team jokes started.
So we had to do a play on both for the Lepper’s maternity session. The concept was the basketball team, with Mom/Recruiter Nicole looking uncomfortable and very pregnant, Dad/Coach Matt arguing with their middle child, Logan, about the baby’s name (with lots of E options) scrawled on the chalkboard), and the rest of the team waiting impatiently for #5 to arrive!
A special thank you to Val at Notre Dame for letting ususe the gym. The colors and setting were PERFECT!
