But pregnancy is also beautiful. The bond formed is immediate and the I still miss hearing my baby's heart beating and feeling those precious movements inside my belly. Just knowing the miracle of growing a human being is mind-blowing.
Since this was my last pregnancy, I knew I wanted to document it properly.
I had the pleasure of working with Dusti Stoneman of The Art of Birth Photography and I was so happy with the photographs she captured. We cut it close because I gave birth to baby Levi only one week after these were taken.
It was such a great experience. It came with hair and make-up and the session was so relaxed. It was nice to be pampered because the last few weeks of pregnancy we don't feel our prettiest. I was so nervous, but Dusti made me feel completely comfortable.
