Brimming

When I was 32 weeks pregnant with Luke, I weighed 15 pounds more than I do now. I was measuring bigger. My poor stomach was red from all the stretch marks. It was winter and oh, I hate winter because I have to wear frumpy, heavy clothes, and I hate frumpy heavy clothes. Yet, I still felt cute. I loved my pregnant body. So as you can imagine, this time around, I feel adorable. I feel like I'm finally the tiny, cute pregnant woman I want to be. I can still squeeze into non-maternity shirts every now and then, and when I can't, I get to wear cute dresses and skirts, halter tops and tank tops. I love my little bump.

Couple that with the fact that I'm good friends with (okay, love and adore!) Beth who is a photography master, and I'm going to be a little full of myself here and say that I haven't photographed this well since my wedding day. Seriously!

That first shot? I want it to be a header or a twitter background or maybe I just want it tattooed on my hand so I can look at it all the time.








And these? Oh my. I feel a little breathless when I look at them because they are so good. Because Beth used her talent, her eye, her love, and documented the love and awe I have for this baby, for this belly, for every moment of this pregnancy.
I'm so excited to share this little part with you, too. If you live in Northwest Indiana or the area, Beth is offering a phenomenal deal. I looked at the first half of this deal and thought, Wow! then I read on and really thought WOW! Beth is beyond talented with a camera, and if you have kids, I promise you, she is amazing at getting children to warm right up to her and ham it up for the camera.

I know I told you this before, but the pictures are amazing and you look SO fantastic!! (I love that dress, btw). I officially want to be friends with Beth. Not like I didn't before from all you've told me about her, but now I deem her officially awesome. :-)

I have to admit that Beth gave me a little sneak preview of these the night she took them! I am in love with all of them. Erin, you have got to be the most beautiful, radiant pregnant woman I've EVER seen. For real. And that dress? AMAZING. The color is so perfect with your skin.

I pretty much want to hug you right now, and never let go.

Beth is a genius.

These are so gorgeous-you look fantastic as a cute little pregnant girl! I will strive for staying semi-small next time around..last time, my size was quite a joke!
