It’s funny when you meet someone while they are pregnant and it just seems normal, as if they have always been that way and you couldn’t possibly see it any different. Then, months later when you see them without a big belly it seems weird (when in reality they have probably spent the first 20 or 30 years of their life without a big belly.) It’s like moving to Portland with short hair. Everyone I meet will associate me with this look. Little do they know I’ve only had this hair for 6 months of the 28 years I’ve been alive.
Cecily is so adorable, beautiful, and comfortable in her skin that you’d think she’d been pregnant her entire life. She wears that baby so well that I might not even recognize her without it. And considering we took these photos just weeks shy of her due date, it’s even more incredible. Isn’t she stunning? Cecily and Drew were my very first clients in Portland, taking advantage of my amazing moving special! They were a delight to hang out with and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Cecily chose Cathedral Park under the St. Johns Bridge and Columbia Park for photos, two spots near her house in North Portland that they frequent often with their dogs. I can’t wait to meet their daughter Lola next week when we get together for newborn portraits!
