While I know it’s the year of the snake, I think it really is the year of the baby. During the fall of last year, there were no children in my close circle of friends, but at the same time later this year, there will be more than five, including my own little one!

I’m usually a full-color, bold and bright type of gal, but I do love me some black and white. A couple of weeks ago I went to the inspiring Who Shot Rock & Roll exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography, where many of the images on display were black and white. One of the most beautiful photos was a platinum palladium print of Mick Jagger, inspiring me to do an all black and white post.

It was a bit of an afterthought. No, not having a baby! That would be crazy talk. No, having maternity photos taken was the afterthought. With ten days left until their due date, Jennifer and Steve decided to document the home stretch before their new little one makes his debut.
