This portrait of Kaitlyn at 39 weeks pregnant is a simple portrait, showing the quiet contemplative phase of late pregnancy. It's a special time, waiting for the birth to happen. There are so many emotions you feel as a soon to be Mum, you sort of turn inwards as you quietly contemplate the significance of all that is about to happen. Having had three babies myself, I find that many phases of pregnancy and motherhood are a blur, but you never forget how it felt right before you gave birth for the first time. I think that this portrait sums up some of how it actually feels at this time, the visible connection between mother and child is already so poignant.
