A HUGE thanks to Kadi Spurlock from

Up in the Sycamore

She’s such a talented photographer (and a great friend too!) I couldn’t be more happy with these maternity pictures, and I’m even more excited that she’ll be photographing Lucy’s birth. If you want to make the pie pictured above, follow this link. I added 1 cup of strawberries to the recipe (because you can never go wrong with extra fruit).

    Monet, these pictures are absolutely precious! I know you’ll treasure them for years and years. You both look so in love with each other and your little girl that you have yet to meet. What a happy day that will be! Thanks for sharing, sweet friend. Have a wonderful weekend!

    The photos are simply amazing! They have so much “feeling”, it is a huge accomplishment to the photographer who captured the essence of this beautiful time in your life, but of course, you both make it easy – the love just flows… :-)

    This is a beautiful post! I love all the pictures. They are so lovely and so artistic. I wish I have pregnancy pictures as precious as these….I didn’t take too many pictures when I was pregnant though. :) I can’t wait to see Lucy’s birth picture (if you’re sharing). Oh…and this pie! Yes, one can never go wrong with more fruit and I can’t wait to make it tomorrow! I love berries pies!

    Your photos are just gorgeous! (I especially love the one where Ryan is smiling at you.) The time is getting close now, and you must be so excited!

    Terrific pictures! I particularly like Afternoon Fit for Tea one, and the one of you reading the Bobbsey twins book (I think I read them all when I was a kid – I had forgotten they looked like that until I saw the picture!). Great post – thanks so much.

    What incredible photos…you will treasure them for a lifetime as will Lucy.

    PS…thanks for your kind note. I know you understand the pain of losing a loved one. xo

    I love these pictures…just adorable and love the afternoon tea outside! : ) A very sweet pie for Lucy, too.
    And maybe one day, you can do a tutorial on how to cross-stitch (is that what it’s called?); I’d love to learn how to make something simple like that lamb! Take care, Monet!
