This sweet couple is expecting their first child this summer. When Lauren contacted me about photographing their family through the next few months, I was moved. The tone of her initial e-mail held such hope and excitement for meeting their baby boy. In the everyday moments of life, it is easy to forget what a precious and important role we mothers play in bringing our children to the world. Lauren’s beautiful outlook on life and motherhood is such an inspiration and has reminded me over and over what a blessing it is to be but a small part of this time in their lives. We had such a great afternoon together during their maternity photography session, and I am now even more excited to meet their little one!
