As any parent will tell you, myself included, the wait in the final weeks before the birth of your first baby is one of the times in your life that you treasure forever. It is filled with beauty, and hope … excitement and fear. Some days the time goes by in record speed, others it feels like each day was equivalent to a year.
Whenever I have the joy of photographing a pregnant mother who is expecting her first baby I feel such instant connection, because I know exactly how it feels in those moments. It’s so special, and life changing. This wonderful couple traveled to me from Texas for me to capture this incredible time for them, and it was pure magic to see the joy on these expectant parent’s faces.
And just as I knew what those moments before felt like for them, now as parents they to have joined the club and I can’t think of anything better.
