A pregnant belly is a thing of wonder. It both holds and was created by the same thing…Love. And from the moment you know that life is growing inside you, everything changes. You begin, at that moment, to become a mother. You must eat for your baby, rest for your baby, even caress a restless baby by gently rubbing that lovely, bulging belly.

We photograph many, many pregnant bellies, and the proud couples to whom they belong. There really is nothing like a “Bellies and Babies” session. You can feel the emotions of the parents: exuberant, hopeful, sometimes a little nervous, but always joyful. We had photographed Craig and Mindy’s wedding not long ago, and were thrilled to be able to capture their very first “family portrait.”
