JS called me one day to ask, “do you take pictures of pregnant ladies?” “Of course!” I exclaimed, “I would die to, but I had trouble talking people into doing a shoot at the end of their pregnancy!” (A move which I can safely say, most regret after it is too late…) Well, JS did not need much convincing, she wanted to do a shoot to mark the impending arrival of her first baby.
On the day of the shoot, she (and her husband) were great sports–and happy to show off JS’s super-cool belly. I am fascinated by pregnant women, what an amazing experience to grow another person! Looking around at the kids I know, I can scarcely wrap my head around the idea that each little dimple, elbow, ear, and eyelash came from almost nothing and lived inside my friends and clients. It truly is an everyday miracle.
JS and M are super psyched to meet their little one in a few weeks. I am not sure if the birth marks the beginning of a new chapter or a new book–either way, look for a peek at the little one here in not too long!
This baby is supposed to make an entrance around in early November, and if the wives’ tale is true and girl babies steal their mom’s beauty, then this baby is most definitely a boy! (although no one knows for sure)
Next week I am going to announce a package for capturing the miracle of new babies, so stay tuned!
