I am so excited to share the photographs from our maternity shoot with the amazingly talented Katie Garcia! This was our first time working with her and we couldn't possibly be more pleased with the results. Somehow she turned a rainy evening, a hot, sweaty pregnant woman and a husband who doesn't like taking pictures into something beautiful. We are so thankful! If you love her work as much as we do, check out her website here.
This one is one of my favorites because it accidentally shows one of the sweetest parts of our pregnancy: Ross's sympathy pregnancy. Several of you know that Ross has had a lot of very serious cravings (compared to my none), an appetite unprecedented in my ten years by his side and other sympathetic pregnancy symptoms. I've read a bit about it and one of the biggest things that triggers sympathetic pregnancy symptoms in the spouse is a previous struggle with infertility, which you all know we went through before our miracle came along. I didn't notice at first, but Katie did, that many of the times she was instructing me on how or where to hold the bump for the pictures, Ross would inadvertently put his hand in the same place. She would politely remind him that we were accentuating my bump, not his. She snapped this one and kept it and it absolutely melts my heart.
