Nine months may seem like a long time when you are pregnant, but it really is a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things. You may be a little exhausted, maybe sick to your stomach at times, but once you feel that little flutter of movement it is all worth it! I don’t think I have to tell anyone how amazing it is to have a life grow inside of you. Instead I will remind everyone to do something special to remember this time in thier lives. I was very reluctant to have pictures taken of myself when I was pregnant with my second child, but I did them. The pictures I have of my daughter, Zoe, and my pregnant self are now so special to me. At the time I was uncomfortable and ready to pop. I don’t see that when I look at the pictures now. They bring me back to a time filled with excitement and anticipation to finally meet the little guy who would complete our family.
Melissa on the other hand has always wanted to do maternity pictures. I was happy to be the one who got to take them for her! She is expecting a little boy in September. In an email she told me ” Oh and I’m thrilled he’s a boy! I wanted a boy and still get teary every time I think about him! I’m thrilled I get to be his mom!”
