i recently got a comment on my facebook wall from an old friend, urging me to post some belly pics. she said that, "Girls care so much more about that - Ava will ask for sure . . ." i had never really thought about it that way, but it made sense. i haven't been asking josh to take nearly as many belly shots this pregnancy as i have in the past, so when my awesome friend jessica offered only a few days later to take some family pictures of us before ava arrived, i was ecstatic!
we met at a local park 2 evenings ago and had so much fun walking around and posing now and then while jessica snapped a ton of pictures. getting tristan to smile was like pulling teeth, and getting sam to sit still was almost as difficult, but when she emailed me the results of her hard work, i was in shock with how well they all turned out!
we've never had professional family photos taken before and, while jessica wouldn't call herself a professional, i would beg to differ.
i am so thankful to have these photos to treasure always and i'm sure that one day ava will be thrilled to look through them as well, knowing that her anticipated arrival was the reason they were taken.
