On a hot, steamy evening in July, I met with parents-to-be Leena and Matt. In spite of some quick moving rain showers, always a potential liability at this time of year, we were able to do most of the session outside. Their lovely home was in midst of almost-completed renovations in preparation for the baby’s arrival. It reminded me of my own pregnancy when the nesting instinct kicked in. After my husband’s first attempt to paint the ceiling in the soon-to-be nursery, I resorted to climbing a tall ladder to re-do the work myself in a perfection-driven haze . I swear I was very, VERY careful, but still probably not a wise move. The ceiling, however, did look perfect! I’m sure everything will be just right when this baby arrives too!
