{anticipation of new life}

What better way to start off this holiday season than with the anticipation and excitement of new life! Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet a friend of a friend for some maternity photos. It was my first time photographing an expectant mother, so I had a lot of fun. Poor mama probably thought I was crazy asking her to lie in the grass while I experimented with my photography. Not to mention, as warm as it may appear in the photos, it was freezing cold. She was such a trooper as I dragged her to a couple different locations. I just remember being that far along barely being able to move. So thank you, Shauna! :-)

She was the cutest little pregnant woman I had ever seen -- doesn't she look amazing?!?! She was 37 weeks here and she is presently the proud mommy of a little baby girl (they didn't know what they were having). I'm so happy for their new little family!

Shauna, I hope you're enjoying mommyhood and I hope you enjoy looking back at these photos of that little life you carried inside of you. :-)
