. .:: Why is this maternity session so special to me, you may ask? Kailin happens to be a dear friend, sister, and the mommy of my little nephew, whom I get to meet and photograph any day now! I've enjoyed following David's and Kailin's journeys as new expecting parents from the get-go. We currently live together, and I love being in the inner-circle, hearing details like, "We heard the heartbeat today!" and "You guessed right about the sex!" and "Come feel, he's kicking!" Kailin is just wrapping up her internship to become a Registered Dietician. She is also a Certified Lactation Counselor. Her face absolutely lights up at the mention of anything related to nursing, and she is passionate about troubleshooting difficulties in breastfeeding.  We've had a wealth of amazing and enlightening conversations! Head over to www.justnourishment.com to view her blog and to see her journey as an expectant mommy.

I'm not meaning to neglect my brother, David, in this post. It's incredibly weird to see your brother grow up and fall in love, when he always seemed so terrified of cooties. And now I'm watching him transform into a supportive and determined father. I am so proud of the man he has become! ::. .
