Two years ago almost to the day, I was honored with the privilege of photographing my friend Kelly’s birth of their family’s third child. Lennon came into the world like a little steam engine as many third babies tend to do and it’s been so wonderful getting to see this family grow over the years. After experiencing Kelly’s birth, we really got close as she supported me through various situations while pregnant with Sally. Finding friends who “speak” that birth and baby language so well… it’s a true blessing. When Kelly told me she was pregnant and hoping I could photograph this next birth I can’t put to words how touched I was. This little one will be joining his or her family so soon and I can’t wait to document their story. We snuck in a maternity session while the Pittsburgh snow hung around and got the chance to document this little ones final days inside her Mama. Such a special time, savoring these days with your three beautiful kids, Kelly, while waiting for your fourth to come.
I know you are going to rock as a mother of four.
All my love,
