Gretchen -- at 32 weeks


Gretchen & I have worked together for about three years now. We've been through who-knows-how-many-reorgs, my wedding, her solo cross-country drive to pick up her beloved Mini Cooper, and more conversations than either of us could count about...well, about everything! She's been both a friend & mentor to me, and I was simply thrilled for her & her husband David when they announced they were expecting.

And they've been doubly blessed, with twin girls!

Now, I've never been through a friend's pregnancy with multiples. Watching Gretchen's belly swell has been simply amazing. I admit, there are times I've been astonished at how much she changes from week to week! We took this shot at 20 weeks as a progress report....



Back then, her wedding ring was already moved to her pinky finger. Now her rings are strung on her favorite cross.

Last week, we did a full maternity session. She & David clearly have so much fun together. They're so much in love, and so very, very happy about this pregnancy.













Here are a few of my other favorites:







These two are so playful, it was sometimes hard to keep up with them!



But like most new parents, there's a lot of quiet introspection going on as well.





Gretchen & David--you two are the best! Can't wait to meet the girls very soon!
