Capturing the joy and excitement of starting a new family through pictures of the expectant mother’s baby bump and documenting the pregnancy is a great way for parents-to-be.
These memories can be cherished for a lifetime as the couple can flip through their maternity pictures and remember the time just before they welcomed their beloved child into their lives. While all pictures of pregnant women are beautiful in their own way, some are simply more memorable than others.
Dad-to-be, Dan Mozer, 30, had suggested to his wife, Angelina, to go to nearby Atlantic Beach in Jacksonville, Florida, and take some pictures. The beach is popular with locals and is a great place to relax, go for a stroll, and take pictures. Suddenly, Dan felt inspired and asked his wife to pose for some pictures with the ocean as a background.
With a big smile on her face, Angelina stood in front of the ocean waves and showed off her baby bump. But when Dan saw what was in the background, he immediately realized that he’d taken the picture of a lifetime.
A dolphin leaped out of the water just as Dan was snapping the picture. Dan knew there were dolphins in the area, so it wasn’t completely unexpected, but he never thought he’d actually catch one jumping in the background of a picture of his pregnant wife. “When I took it, I was like, ‘Oh, my God!’ Unfortunately, she totally missed it,” Dan told AWM.
Dan and Angelina credit their son, Courtland, who was born on January 27th, for the picture. They joke that Courtland summoned the dolphin from his mother’s belly. “Someone started yelling to us that there were dolphins, and we could see their dorsal fins.
Then, out of nowhere, this thing just jumps out of the water,” Dan explained to Yahoo a little more about how the amazing picture came about.
Although Courtland seems to be a dolphin whisperer, Angelina and Dan aren’t going to change his name. Dan confirmed, “No, we’re not changing his name, as some have suggested, to Dolph Finn.”
