lauryn’s baby has arrived…3 weeks early

Lauryn’s maternity portion of her belly series came to a close Monday, when their baby BOY decided to arrive a few weeks early. Mom and baby are well, and I got to visit them at the hospital yesterday and meet little Madden Kane. I’m so incredibly happy for them.

Selfishly, I’m a little sad it’s over. When we started this project, I was not pregnant, and to be quite honest, I was not planning on getting pregnant. But when I learned of this wonderful surprise, Lauryn was one of the first to know. She became not only a “client”, but quite a good friend and support at a time of uncertainty for me. Her enthusiasm for her baby and her entire experience really enriched my pregnancy. I had someone to chat with on a weekly basis about all the changes we were going through. Photo shoots turned into coffee dates, and I have gained a true friend throughout. She’s a strong, beautiful person and mother, and I’ve been so blessed to get to know her so well….another gift from the “job” that just keeps giving back to me.

I must admit that my end seems far away…another full trimester to go…and I’m a little jealous she’s on the other side now. But I’ll keep pushing on, working my butt off, and looking forward to a few months of rest at some point before the craziness begins again. Of course, next week, I get the honor of photographing this precious little boy so stay tuned for some photos of Madden in all his splendor! Thank you for following along on her/our journey together.

A few shots of my visit yesterday…

  • Alicia - Congrats to the family! I don’t know Lauryn, but I really enjoyed the maternity series. You guys did a great job with it, and how fun to look back on it years from now when the kids are big! Your own little bundle will be here before you know it – so exciting. 🙂 I was surprised, elated, uncertain, etc., too, when I found out about number 3, but lemme tell ya, it’s awesome and you’re gonna love it!ReplyCancel

  • Susan - Welcome Madden! I will miss the weekly updates too. Maybe you could come in once a week?! It would be just as fun to watch you grow. It goes SO fast. oxReplyCancel

  • Eva - You did a great job of capturing Lauryn’s beauty and her fun-loving personality!
    I can’t wait to see little Madden’s pictures! Lauryn is my only niece, and I am just a wee bit proud of the woman she has become!ReplyCancel
