I photographed Jen and Tim Steward’s wedding 3 years ago, which is unreal to me. Time really does fly! Now they have a baby boy due to make his grand entrance in a few short weeks! Tim contacted me to arrange a maternity shoot, which we did at Yaddo Gardens. Such a serene, lovely location for a beautiful time in the Stewards’ lives.
I think this night was one of the hottest on record, but Jen kept insisting she was fine – able to sit ok, wander the grounds ok, and show off her baby bump just fine as well! The first couple in their crew of friends to have a baby, Jen and Tim’s little guy is sure to have plenty of surrogate aunts and uncles to spoil him. A special onesie brought to the session attested to that too – “New to the Crew!”
Never too many friends and family to have in your lives and love your baby. Accept every single offer of help, Jen, especially in the early days! Sleep when the baby sleeps; have the ‘crew’ bring in food; allow visitors to see the baby but have them throw a load of laundry in too!
I wish you nothing but the best as you near the finish line! Go to your happy place during labor and delivery; the end result is SO worth it!!! Can’t wait to see pics of Little Boy Steward. Congratulations as you grow from a family of 2 to 3!!
