It’s no secret that I love babies. They are so squish-able and love-able and tiny. Taking picture of brand-spanking-new babies is the best. They grow and change so fast you don’t want to miss a thing…but on the other side of the story, I love taking maternity photos. When I look at a pregnant woman I see how gorgeous they are, how strong they are and how awesome it is that there is a teeny-tiny life growing inside them. I know most pregnant women don’t see themselves this way, but I think every pregnant woman should have her picture taken. It doesn’t have to be a big elaborate production, even just a quick snap shot, but something because imagine how great it would be to have pictures of your Mom when she was pregnant with you. To see how much love she had for you even before she held you in her arms for the first time…sigh…I just love capturing these fleeting moments!
I met up with an old high school friend a few weeks back to take some pictures of her gorgeous self and her new perfect little bump! Sadie and I danced together to high school. We spent MANY hours practicing, riding buses, and dancing together but I haven’t seen her since graduation. It was awesome to see her and be able to catch up again. She is so super pretty & looks great with her little bump. She’s always been sweet and caring and brilliantly smart…I know she’s going to be one amazing Mom!
At the beginning of the session Sadie told me that she couldn’t do a “serious” face. And while we definitely laughed a lot during her session…I think she lied to me…this next photo is not just proof of that, but is also one of my favorites…LOVE pretty, glowy, morning light!
Boom…see Sadie, you CAN do a serious face
Yup, we were hanging out in an alley. It was so pretty though. Old brick + ivy growing everywhere = LOVE!
This next photo is another of my favorites! Loving the B&W!
Ok I promise that this is my last favorite for this post. I just love how happy she is!
Sadie – I loved catching up & I hope you love the photos…I know that I do! I can’t wait to see if it’s a boy or girl!! I think it’s a girl…but I’m almost ALWAYS wrong so it’s probably definitely a boy! Either way I know he or she will be so loved! Can’t wait to see you become a mama. And next time I want to meet that husband of yours, he sounds like a great guy! Let’s not wait another 8 (!!) years to catch up
