Almost there…

This little one decided to give his/her parents a kick as we were taking some pictures on their couch – I love these expressions :)

And this lovely mama Erin asked, as I was leaving, if I thøught the line below her belly button (a.k.a. linea nigra – which, yes, I had to google in order to figure out the spelling) would show up in the photos. I gave her my usual answer to this question, which is, “Oh, I can edit it out if you don’t like it…” and I loved her response… “Oh, no, I’m hoping you will be able to see it. I think it’s cool. I feel like it looks like a seam.” :)

And this one I’ve seen done, I can’t remember where, probably or somewhere… and so had Erin. She described it to me, and I knew what she meant. I don’t usually bring props, but she said she didn’t have blocks for her baby yet — come on, no blocks?! poor child is going to be needing those momentarily! :) But I said no problem, I’d bring some of my daughters’ blocks for this shot. But then when I went digging through the toys, I could only find one B block. So I brought a lowercase d, and promised her I’d fix it in Photoshop. Gotta love digital photography!

What a fun shoot! Great to meet you guys. Can’t wait to meet your little one in a few weeks.

I love the "Baby" photo and the one of you and Chris laughing. These will be so precious to you both – especially in years to come. I also like the blog about the shoot – it makes a nice memory. Erin – the linea negra? I love it.

It's fun to see such an exciting and special time captured in beautiful photographs. They are all great but I think it's especially sweet to see the ones showing the excited and loving expressions of Erin & Chris!

Love seeing the pictures of Erin and Chris. Since they live SO FAR AWAY we haven't been able to enjoy seeing them (okay – able to watch Erin grow) – she's beautiful, by the way. Can't wait to see pictures of the baby and proud parents!!! Thanks for sharing.

I'm sure the baby will be as awesome in visible life as she/he is in these pictures.

Erin, Greg and I expect an 8×10 glossy of the one of Chris kissing your belly (not shown). We will hang it over our fireplace.

No, in all seriousness – these are great!
