Seeing my friends become mothers has been one of my greatest joys. There’s something so innately beautiful about pregnancy. Though we don’t always feel it (thank you, hot flashes), mommas-to-be always have a special glow, don’t they? Throughout our struggles to get pregnant, our fostering adventure, and the last four and a half years, Katie and Justin have been by our sides. They’ve let us gripe and complain, cry on their shoulders, and were there to watch our foster daughter in the middle of the night, without hesitation, when I went into labor. These are good people, y’all.
I admit I teared up a bit when I was photographing Katie’s maternity session. We have a pretty special bond over this pregnancy thing, and it was such an honor to get to photograph these. The way Justin and Katie snuggle together is so sweet and special and …at the time, they didn’t know if they were having a boy or girl either! TEAM GREEN! It’s funny to prep these photographs for a blog post now having known little Eli for over 7 months.
There may or may not be an arranged marriage in their Eli and our sweet girl Everett’s future. Just sayin’.
I couldn’t NOT include a photograph of our special friend for the evening, could I? How cute is he?
