This beautiful mama-to-be is aglow with love and grace for the little lady growing inside of her belly. I am so excited for her, for the adventures ahead of her and the joy and heartache I know she will have, being a mama myself.
Cassandra and I go way, way, way back. 5th and 6th grade kinda back. As time went by, we went our separate ways until one day I was visiting my parent's house and there was an invitation sitting on the counter from Cassandra inviting my family to her baby shower! My sister, Lindsay, who was closer to Cassie and in the same grade as her exclaimed, "Cassie's pregnant! Out of the blue she texted me and she's gonna have a baby!" Immediately I jumped with joy! A friend who's going to be a mama just like me! I RSVP'ed immediately Yes!
It was as if the years that separated us never came to pass. We spoke casually and rejoiced together at the new kind of friendship blooming in front of us. I feel so blessed to have been able to photograph her beautiful belly and am looking forward to meeting her little Lily due any day now!
Good luck on your journey into motherhood and enjoy!
