A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to work with our favorite photographer Hollin Brodeur. Lucky because Hollin and her hubby moved to Montreal for school and they happened to be travelling through Portland this summer. Hollin shot our fantastic maternity photos when we were expecting Cora. Now, almost two years later she met up with us and captured Cora as well as some candid shots of my belly. The full session will not be done for a few more weeks but she gave us a lovely sneak peak. Click on this link if you would like to see them.
We also received an email from a photographer who took a few photos of Cora and Scott at Pickathon. I had completely forgotten about that so it was a pleasant surprise to open an email with these lovely shots.
Things are moving right along here, we are now four weeks away from the due date. I am huge and exhausted, humbled by my current physical limitations. Cora and I spend lots of time at home since chasing her around in public is a bit like torture to me and my painful body. I can not shake the feeling that this baby will be arriving early so if my hunch is correct we will be meeting her in less then a month. I have been working through some pretty extreme anxiety about this impending birth. Cora's delivery was very, very difficult and exhausting. I have chosen to attempt a home birth once again and am hoping it goes very differently (ie: faster, easier). One thing I have learned is to not expect/hope for any one outcome except a healthy baby and healthy mama.
