This lovely lady has been my friend for as long as I can remember–well, even longer actually! 🙂 She is pregnant with her second (here are pics of her first when she was turning 1), a baby boy this time!, and we had fun taking photos a few weeks ago at a beach near where she lives in Connecticut. It was in the high 30s, relatively warm for here in winter :), but the wind was strong–I got to wear a jacket, but she couldn’t, to achieve this beautiful maternity silhouette! I think the outcome was worth it, and I hope the photos always remind her of this incredible time. Congratulations, Cassie!!! I can’t wait to meet him!!!
