maternity leave

Got you with that post title didn't I? He He He. No, I'm not preggo. But my best friend/name collage guru Beth is. Very pregnant in fact. Which means that name collages will be on hold for a while folks. We will start taking orders again in March when things have settled down a bit for her.

This weekend the whole fam came over for a little session. One last shoot of this family of 3 before they become 4. Such a good lookin family...



Beth is such a beautiful pregnant lady. She has been complaining about how "big" she is for months. She's not fooling anyone, she is gorgeous. And don't even get me started about her little nugget Weston. Those eyes...those cheeks...his little voice...I love him.

Poking at the belly button...

And my two favs ... sigh...

Can't wait to meet that little girl!

It is FA-REEZING in St. Louis. I have a really bad headache and I seriously think its from all of the teeth chattering I have been doing. I've been telling Shane he really needs to buy me a heated sweat suit. Surely there is something like that out there. With the battery disguised in a fanny pack perhaps? He doesn't seem to think that would be a good look for me.

We are snuggling up under blankets, avoiding the outside world, and actually I will be flying south in a few days where it is a tad warmer. I'm headed to Alabama to visit some sweet friends, meet some sweet babies and well, get some space so I can think a little clearer. Who knows, maybe I'll even come up with those 2010 goals. Maybe goal #1 should be to invent a heated sweat suit complete with fanny pack disguised battery. Hmm....

Dear Erin,
Just wanted to know that I love ready your blog. Even though we have never met, I grew up with Shane and Brett in our old neighborhood. Your creativty for taking pictures is wonderful and your little Monkey Pants is so cute. When coming to Alabama, if you are coming to Huntsville or anything around it, you will need to bring WARM clothes. It may be the south, but tonight it is 20 with a feels line 11. Have a safe trip and best of luck in 2010 with your business and family!!!

Seriously, Beth, no pregnant woman should ever look so beautiful. It just makes the rest of us look bad! Great pics, Erin!

Beth is indeed one of the cutest pregos I've ever seen, & Erin the most talented photographer!! GREAT shots & I get comments on the photos you've done for us ALL the time! I think you're really onto something with the heated sweatsuit/fanny pack combo. Those would go like hotcakes right now in the Lou. Better get to designing that before someone steals your idea!
