Sweet baby Grace! Only a few more weeks until you are here!

This is one of my favorite sessions with Lara so far. (Click to see sessions one, two, and three.) In fact, the first picture (below) might be my favorite maternity picture I’ve taken so far.  Soft natural light, beautiful colors, a sweet baby bump, while Lara simply stands in Grace’s nursery holding her belly.  There is something so sweet about a nursery – the place where hours and hours are spent  in preparation and anticipation. The place where diapers will happen, where prayers have happened, where hours in the middle of the night will be spent, where Grace’s cries and laughter will fill the air, where cuddling, sleeping, and playing will take place. Maybe even some firsts… the first time sleeping through the night, the first time sitting up, the first time a word is spoken.  Settling the nursery says so much about Lara and Ari as parents and the atmosphere that Grace will live in. Yes, I think why this is my favorite session. It’s the beauty and comfort of home that says it all.

To follow Lara’s journey, be sure to follow her Tumblr.
