Have I told you how excited I am for these two?! It's been absolutely amazing watching their story from the sidelines unfold. I have know Aaron and Lauren literally since we were in grade-school and they are some of the best people you'll meet. In fact, I'm happy to call Lauren one of my best friends - we have been through so much together and it's so fun to watch them start a family. I've joked how excited I am for play dates!
These photos mean so much more than just maternity photos, as they are a true testimony. You see, Lauren was a TROOPER with walking, climbing, sitting, and all the other things (I can't believe I asked her to do) at 37 weeks pregnant. I normally ask my mamas to plan their maternity sessions between 28-34 weeks so they aren't too close to their date, yet Lauren was willing to still try it at 37 weeks. We'd this session two months prior but had to reschedule multiple times due to some (major) personal matters. Lauren embodies strength and wanted to honor her dad at the session with including Sadie's heirloom guitar from him. These photos represent a beautiful chapter as well as one about to begin!
