I am so excited for my friends Traci & Daniel as they eagerly await the arrival of their first child! We had such a fun time in their new home and at their neighborhood park. It was refreshing being in the company of people who are so chill and transparent, and confident in being themselves. I also got to feel their daughter move and kick in her belly, and it brought me back to the day my god-daughter was born, causing me to re-live the wonderment of the miracle of birth! We were also celebrating Traci's birthday on the day of the shoot - hence the balloons! I asked her how this pregnancy has made her grow, and she expressed that it has taught her to be okay with imperfection. "I thought I would have life more figured out by now, but I'm realizing how much I have yet to learn. Preparing to be a mother has helped me surrender the need to have it all together. Like some people are gonna come over and see my messy house, and that's okay! It's a very refreshing and timely season."
