Pregolicious Janelle…{The Middlebushers}

Moments before writing this..I texted Janelle to check what her due date was again…I SOOO wanted to post her pics before she popped that sweet little baby out….come to find..darling little Ainslie Sage made her big debut 3 weeks early!!! As I showed up to their session a few weeks ago, I joked around how everyone said I was crazy to do a session the night before leaving for a big 10 day trip to Hawaii-because everyone knows I dont pack until the night before….sometimes even the morning of:) But I just had a feeling she would have that baby girl early…”Just watch, I told Aaron, she’s gonna come 3 weeks early….how can you really know a due date??” Let me tell you…I am SOO glad we squeezed this session in before I left, and  I think the pictures will tell why. Janelle was truly one of the most radiant prego’s I have ever seen. She seriously rocked that belly like no ones business..and I kept telling her she looked like a “Catalogue Pregnant  Model”…who wear the fake baby bump.. and its so obvious  because no other part of their body show signs of pregnancy…Janelle was slim, trim, and barely even waddled:) I have known Janelle and Aaron since high school and I loved the classic look on their face when I asked them the question you always seem to ask people right before they have a baby….if they feel  “ready”….{which was followed by 2 sweet looks of bewilderment, and a smile in eachothers direction:) }… if there is a way to ever REALLY be ready…ya know?? Babies completely transform everything about life, and and its harder, and even more wonderful than you can ever plan for.

I think what I loved most about this session, other than the obvious fact that the light was perfect, they were positively glowing with excitement, and  Janelle looking like a poster child for Vogue maternity or something… It was the ever so apparent love between Janelle and Aaron. I love when the hubbys come to these sessions, because pregnancy is so much more than just this new little life growing inside of her..its also a completely new closeness and bond between the parents. Marriage is all about working together, being together and growing together…but there is something remarkable about holding a little “mini me”  in your hands that you CREATED TOGETHER….your life completely changes in an instance..and you are now loving with this whole new chamber of your heart that you never even knew you had.. No one will ever love that baby as much as you do, nor laugh about the tiny insignificant spit-ups and slurred words like you both do. Its an overwhelming love that is completely indescribable.

I think that being a parent you have to have a sense of humor about life, yourself, and things out of your control, and luckily, Janelle married perhaps one of the funniest people on the planet. Those of you who know Aaron can attest to that fact. When the days are hard, and the hours slept at night are few..I know he will somehow shed humor on the situation. Janelle and Aaron..what amazing parents you will be…there is no question little Ainslie will be overflowing with personality and sweetness, coming from you two. Thank you letting me be a tiny part in the adventure….Hope you  treasure these pictures, and may they forever be a reminder of this little chapter in life…and the beauty of pregnancy!..LOVE YOU GUYS! xoxo…

When I asked Aaron what he was most excited about…he answered simply..

“The little feet”..
