i do not have a waddle, it's called a pregnancy swag [unknown]

Suzi might be one of the funniest and most adorable pregnant people out there.  Her little one is due in March and since Suzi and Jon don't know the gender, their baby shower theme was 'baby it's cold outside'.  Which made this wintery Sunday a perfect backdrop for her maternity session.  Snowy drifts, icicles hanging from the windows and a light flurry in front of the most perfect barn door.

how do you spell love? [piglet]

I thought my own pregnancy was the most exciting time of my life.  And then one of my best friends spills the beans and my life is once again filled to the brim with unwavering excitement, tears and wonderment.  And ice cream.  I needed to be a supportive friend somehow, right?

Waiting for Lauren's daughter to make her arrival was a true test of my patience, but I promise, it was worth every minute.  And getting to capture Lauren and Joe's excitement creating her nursery and spending their last days as a family of three (can't forget Bailey the pup!) was the icing on the cake.
