"A few years ago I had the opportunity to photograph Tara and her mother and loved seeing the very special bond those two have, so it was an absolute pleasure to have the chance to have her in front of my camera again. I was so looking forward to meeting her husband, Pierre, and seeing her cute baby bump. I love seeing my clients come full circle with regards to family life and what is more precious than adding a little one to the family? Because I am expecting my first little one as well, I could identify with Tara's excitement! Feeling those first little flutters, reminding you that you are carrying a precious gift from God, is just so fulfilling! It is priceless to be able to capture this season of life for my clients!"

"Pregnancy and becoming a mother is something that possibly only happens once or a few times in a woman's life, so I felt it was really important to capture this beautiful and special time so we can look back and remember. There have been many moments in life, that I wish I had captured on camera and didn't. Pregnancy is one of those seasons that I am sure will become a distant memory in the whirlwind of motherhood. Having these beautiful images will keep the memory alive.
I don't think I truly appreciated how amazing a woman's body is until I saw my body create and grow a tiny human. Woman all over the world give birth every day and have been for thousands of years, so I think we often overlook this remarkable process. While I feel a strong connection to the tiny baby inside me, I do not think I will fully understand what it means to be a mother until I actually hold this little one in my arms. They say it's the most amazing feeling in the world and a love like you have never felt before. I am so looking forward to the next part of this incredible journey." Tara, Expectant Mother
