Salena and Mark are high school sweethearts. Mark couldn’t wait to marry Salena so he proposed to her in 2004 in a park that Salena played in as a little girl. But, both Salena and Mark are ambitious people who wanted to finish school and start their careers before getting married. After Salena graduated from nursing school and Mark graduated from the police academy, they were married after a three year engagement. Now, three years later, they are starting their family and will be welcoming Baby Ava in September!
I met Salena at Ashley’s wedding in 2008 and I loved how welcoming she was. Salena and Ashley are best friends and I think it’s so fun that they got to be pregnant together! Salena had Mark and I cracking up during the entire shoot. I would tell her to turn her head to the left and she would turn it right. I would tell her to turn it right and she would turn it to the left. I’m going to blame it on pregnancy brain Mark and Salena are so open with one another and so trusting. It’s an awesome thing to see!
Congratulations Salena and Mark! I can already tell how much you love your baby girl! She is a lucky little lady to come into this world with so much love already! Here’s your slideshow!
