You only get a handful of "soul mates" in this life. Lindsey is one of mine. Trevor is one of hers. And soon, she's going to meet her 3rd soul mate -- the little bundle of life-changing-ness in her womb. My eyes are seriously stinging with feels as I write this. You see, I met Lindsey 6 years ago when I desperately needed someone who understood this photography part of my life. She gets me in a way not even my HUSBAND does (which is why we have fondly coined the term "work wife" for one another). And in just 4 short weeks (give or take), she is not only going to join the mom club, but the "run a photography business from home while being a mom" club. And I am selfishly SO HAPPY to welcome another member. I love these two souls more than words can ever express, and I am over the moon to witness them make the transition into parenthood. They're going to be SO kickass at it.
I'm not saying I didn't enjoy photographing pregnancy before I had a baby of my own, but compared to how greatly I love documenting this transition NOW versus THEN -- it is night and day. I consider it the highest honor to be invited into the last remaining moments of a couple's life before it is forever changed.
