I was pregnant alongside one of my best friends, her with her second and I with my third. When I say right alongside I mean it, we had the same due date! As always though, my baby came late and hers came early so our boys are about ten days apart. I was with her throughout her whole pregnancy so it only seemed natural that I also take her maternity pictures.
Since we were due in January and it was freezing, she opted for an in home, lifestyle session. It was perfect because they had spent a lot of time and effort making their home such a beautiful space! Plus the light coming in from the window was absolutely perfect and created that soft glow that I love so much.
So the thing about Allie is that she loves being pregnant. I do not, not at all. But being pregnant at the same time as someone who loves it definitely gives a new appreciation to it. She was sad that she would no longer feel her belly move, or the soft hiccups, and that feeling of maternal protection surrounding her baby. Of course she was so excited to meet her little guy but watching her love on her baby bump definitely soften my eyes to mine!
Plus how awesome is that nightgown?!
