We had just wrapped up Rachel's baby shower. And you know, it's in a setting like a baby shower where I see that this whole idea of finding your "tribe" isn't a new concept. My favorite thing about events like that is seeing women come together with often only one thing in common: determination to love on, celebrate with, and bless a mama-to-be.
Women who barely know Rachel but know everything about my mom come bearing fruit salad and a diaper genie; close friends and co-workers of Rachel show up at a strange house and sit on the floor chatting over way too much food. It's a beautiful scene.
And then, as this mama's parents and grandparents show up to scoot her off to the next event of the day, we decide to sneak in a quick photo session.
I love that the excitement of the day is still in her eyes, that we made images this lovely in 10 minutes, that she, this gifted and beautiful woman married my brother, and that new life is so worth the celebration.
Can't wait to meet you little one! xo.
