While I was editing these pictures, I found myself reflecting back onto my own life, as I find myself doing more and more often lately. As I put the final touches on the pictures of these parents-to-be, I began to think about how I couldn’t imagine my life without my kids. They make me whole, they make me smile, they make me laugh. However, they also make me want to pull my hair out and occasionally lock myself in the bathroom, but that’s a different story. I love them for being the parts of me I never knew I needed. Taylor and her husband are expecting a child and are about to experience all of these same feelings that come with being a parent.While I was taking these maternity pictures, I could feel the love radiating off of them. You could just feel how much love they had not only towards each other but towards their unborn baby as well. Every time they touched her growing belly, their faces completely lit up. Their happiness and excitement about what was yet to come was contagious. I am a firm believer that magic is real and it comes in many forms. I believe that unconditional love is one of those forms of magic and this baby is going to be one of the lucky ones who gets to experience that magic firsthand.
