Is it normal to see a friend all knocked up and wish that you could jam your own baby back up into your uterus?
Not that I want to do that.
Just wondering if it would be normal if I did.
Let’s get back to the subject at hand. Or at stomach. Bad joke. This is my friend Julia. You may remember her from the teacher-themed baby shower we threw a few weeks ago. She was the guest of honor. Or you may recall Jules from the dinner party baby shower where I showed all my girls with their baby bellys.
Well, I am back to show a few more shots of those beautiful baby bumps. Last weekend I had the honor of snapping some maternity photos for Julia and her husband Jade before her little Ethan makes his grand appearance. So without further adeiu – meet Julia.
I know what you are thinking – and no, I did not photoshop her skin. It’s really that gorgeous. It’s enough to make you sick.
So here’s what we did – we started with some traditional pictures. And some cliche ones.
But then we mixed it up a bit. The sun was setting (pretty much my favorite time to take photos) and the cute couple was able to relax into more casual poses.
The lighting made me oh-so-happy.
Happier than Jillian Michaels in a rehab center.
And that is pretty darn near the maximum amount of happiness that is possible. Especially when screaming and crying is involved.
Dontcha just love this one:
She looks so relaxed. and beautiful. and content. Like the world has stopped revolving on its axis just so that she can relish in this very moment. Soak it up my friend. soak it up good.
because very soon the world is going to speed up and fling you into a giant pool of dirty diapers. Just remember to put your hands up in the air and scream the whole way down.
