Emily and I talked about doing some maternity shots while she was here in Chicago. But we really wanted some natural ones. One of my favorite movies for Christmas time is The Family Stone. Without ruining the movie, I will tell you there is a maternity picture of the mother. It is so beautiful and natural, and looks like it was as easy as breathing to take. Thats what I loved. A photograph that shows the woman at that time in her life, participating in what I believe a sacred and beautiful thing; the act of bringing a child into this world. Nothing gimmicky, just Emily and her pregnancy glow. Therefore, we took a few in my apartment. The one with my dog, just kind of happened. Here are a few of my favorites. Emily is gorgeous, no?
