There's something magical and exciting hidden within a growing bump. Obviously, there's a baby in there, but there's a certain twinkle in an expectant mom's eyes as she prepares for the future with a new member of the family. How will things be different? What will she look like? Will he get along with his big siblings? Will I ever get a good night's sleep again? I love photographing expectant mothers with their families, not only because I think the pregnant form is absolutely beautiful, but because it really freezes a moment in time. I've had moms ask me if I think it's worth it to do a family shoot with the big siblings while they're still pregnant or if they should wait until the new baby arrives, and I am a firm believer that there's something important to capturing that time when you once were just a family of 3 or 4, before baby #2 or 3 came along. Working with both of these mamas and their families was such a joy.
