Just a fun visual update on our little Lemonhead (who the girls are starting to call “Mango” now–apparently we’ve done a good job keeping them away from old episodes of Saturday Night Live because they don’t really understand why I can’t use that name).

I can say with 100% certainty that my body knows exactly how to stretch out to accommodate baby #5–I’m waddling around already:).

So, so much thanks to my baby sister Stephanie who took these for me.  She’s a photography major at BYU and I just can’t wait until she graduates and I can convince her to come live with me and shoot with me all the time.  3 weeks is not long enough–we miss her already!

Isn’t she gorgeous?!

Baby Gap, here I come;).

So I am trying to be better this time around at documenting the progression of this pregnancy.  Plus, it’s so funny when you are still pretty early in pregnancy and you feel like a house already and then you see a picture and think, “Oh, I am not even a condo yet, maybe just a pup tent.”  When I was 11 weeks along, I just happened to be in the pediatrician’s office and just happened to pick up a magazine which just happened to have a small blurb about how at 11 weeks your baby is about the size of a large lime.  Well, that was just too fun, so we started calling the baby “Baby Lime.”  After a week or two, we decided Baby Lime must have grown to at least lemon-size, so we named the baby “Lemonhead.”  And it stuck.  Because, really, who doesn’t want to give birth to something with a head the size of a lemon.  Wishful thinking, I know, but it beats the other fruit analogies coming up in the not too distant future (watermelon, anyone?).

On a side note, I have very limited openings for the rest of the year at this point.  I have one session available in May, one in June and one in late July.  I have a crazy busy summer of travel coming up and then a baby of my own to cuddle.  If you are due late September through December, feel free to contact me and I will put you on a waiting list for my light postpartum work load:).

So, without further ado, Baby Lemonhead at 17 and 19 weeks gestational age:

19weeks

We are hoping it will only be two more days until we know if it’s a boy lemon or a girl lemon–wish us luck!

I am sitting here trying to figure out why I had so much fun with April and Jason at their maternity session.  I mean, sure, April is an absolutely stunning mom-to-be and they were both fun, eager, and easy to work with, but I think what I enjoyed most about their session was just how completely obvious it was that they love each other.  Having your portraits taken when you most decidedly do not look like your regular self can be a bit daunting and as April lugged in her various clothing choices and occasionally worried if a pose was working out or if she looked okay, Jason was always there to offer help or support.  They love each other in that way that makes your heart squeal a little inside with happiness, and that always brings a smile to my face.  Zoey is one lucky little girl to be coming to this new family, and I can’t wait to meet her:).

April and Jason, waiting for Zoey:
