Here's that maternity session I promised yesterday. I literally squealed when I saw these photos for the first time. I'm the kind of gal that thinks most maternity shoots are totally cheesy and yet I somehow convinced my sister-in-law that it was a good idea. Julia is amazing with a camera. I couldn't have imagined a pregnant lady and her massive bump looking so beautiful!

Along with all the precious gifts, we also asked the guests to write a letter to baby girl. Each guest pulled a number out of a jar that represented an age. We then got to write her a letter full of wisdom, humor and encouragement for that year of her life. My sister-in-law will keep the letters in a baby book and present them to my niece at each birthday. I picked the number 5, so my niece will read the letter I wrote to her at her baby shower for her fifth birthday. Pretty sweet, huh?
Tomorrow I'll post some of my favorite shots from the maternity shoot that happened right after the shower. That Julia sure knows how to take some pretty pictures!

Although it's currently raining out and the clouds look a bit thunderous, I can't help but feel summer in the air. At the market this weekend, I saw buckets and buckets of fresh picked peonies in every delicious shade of coral and burgundy. The clothing catalogues arriving in my mailbox daily show models wearing pops of bright yellows and neon green. I really can't look outside and not expect to see the sun shining brightly. That will come soon enough, I suppose. Happy Monday!
