A Summer Baby

Bumps & Babies, Families

You hear so much about the challenges that can accompany pregnancy.  Sometimes it’s physically uncomfortable.  Sometimes it’s exhausting.  Sometimes it’s nerve-wracking.  Sometimes it’s all of the above.

And so, given the challenges that pregnant women sometimes face, I find it really lovely when families — and especially mothers — want to document their pregnancies through photos.

This woman appeared so comfortable in her skin that it was a complete joy to take her picture and spend the afternoon with her.  At her request, these photos were taken outside.  She wanted to remember this child as her “summer baby,” and fortunately the temperature and the late afternoon sunlight cooperated beautifully.

Fitting for someone from California, don’t you think?  I wish her health and happiness for the remainder of her pregnancy and as her family welcomes this little one.
