Back in February we were up in Washington state visiting friends and family. My friend Val was due to have her 4th baby prior to our arrival.
She was feeling discouraged each day that passed with no sign of arrival. Pregnancy is hard work. My sister-in-law, also a photographer (www.sarahdawnphotography.com), and I decided to ambush her with a surprise photo shoot.
In the midst of extreme discomfort, anticipation and discouragement, Val couldn’t fully embrace how amazing she looked. Sarah and I wanted to change that…
Baby Lucas did arrive, of course. At 9.9 pounds and 22.5 inches, Val had every reason to be uncomfortable! Congratulations on a job ‘well done’!
