I honestly can’t recall how many years Dorinda and I have been friends now, but it’s been a long time. I watched as her and her husband Nick (also a good friend) became parents half way around the world (Nick was stationed in Japan with the Navy), and again after they’d been reassigned to Chicago. After they finally moved home a few years ago, I finally got to meet and cuddle their sweet kiddos. So when Nick and Dorinda announced they were expecting baby #3, I jumped at the chance to capture her pregnancy this time around!

 Dorinda was such a beautiful Momma-to-be!!

Dorinda was such a beautiful Momma-to-be!!

We actually ended up doing a total of 3 sessions- one at 3 months, one at 6 months, and then one at almost 9 full months. It is amazing at how our bodies grown and change to support the life that we are creating!
