Jennifer capturing Reuben & me at 9 mths






















How lucky am I to have not only an amazing friend who's been my backbone through pregnancy, hosts my baby shower at her home, is a mama and mama-to-be and by the way is an absolutely amazing photographer as well. We have just had the most feminine and fun time this morning at home with Auntie Lisa and Kristina on hand to help with props, and 800 shots later, I just had to post these. If Reuben were to grow wings he couldn't look any more angelic. Finally, I feel at peace and excited, feminine and with a pregnancy bloom. How can I thank my dear friend enough for everything she's done for our family this year. Can't wait til we get all these shots up on Flickr.

Hi Catherine,

I just wanted to write to say the very best of luck and love for tomorrow. I can't believe the day has sped around like this. You must be feeling so excited and nervous today, as tomorrow you will be a mummy to 2 little babas! I'm sorry I haven't written to you personally lately but as I'm always making sure you're ok on Reuben's blog I feel you are still just down the office from me!

Reuben looks such a gorgeous little boy and you must be so proud of everything he's achieved over the last 18 months, he is just incredible. I just don't know where he gets his determination from!!!

I would be really grateful if you could let me have your address as I've still got your old one. Anyway the best of luck with everything, stay as rested as you can and more than anything enjoy this wonderful experience. Can't wait to hear the news on Reuben's blog, I think I voted girl but am rarely right.

Sending you all lots of love over the Ocean.

Take care, love Sharon, Paul, William & James

PS I have another bun in the oven due March xxxxx
