One of my nearest and dearest friends, Samantha, is expecting her first child later this year. Coming home to see her beautiful belly was such a wonderful thing for me, especially since I am so in love with being pregnant. There is something magical about knowing that there is child growing inside of you – it really is an absolute miracle. Sam and I have already spent a couple of days relaxing around the pool (like we did as children) but this time we do so as mothers. Her daughter is due around the beginning of May, and even though I am sad that I won’t be here for her birth, I feel honoured to have had to opportunity to have seen – and photographed – Samantha, while she is still pregnant. We had a lot of fun taking pictures out in the garden. We laughed like we were still 10 years old. Years and years go by, we get married, have babies, things change, but our friendship never does.
There are many more beautiful pictures that I am excited to share with you, but I haven’t finished editing them yet so this is just a little preview.
