Kelly & Ivo : Baby

Carrying a new life is one of the most beautiful progressions to witness. A woman’s body growing and changing, preparing to make lots of room to bring a tiny human being into the world. A living, breathing little person, made from the lives of two people. It is so incredible!

Last week, I had the pleasure of photographing Kelly & Ivo as they wait for the arrival of their new baby. This wasn’t the first time this sweet couple has been in front of my lens. A year ago, Kelly & Ivo were featured here in an engagement session when this blog first launched. Since then, Kelly has become a dear friend and it is amazing to see the love she has for this new little life.

We kept the session very intimate. Just Kelly, her curvy belly and the beautiful anticipation of motherhood.
