It’s been a long winter, and despite the lingering snow on the ground, signs of spring are everywhere: elementary schools are hosting car washes, joggers have cast off their extra layers, and cafés are offering outdoor seating.

But the telltale sign of an enduring winter — we all know it, and it just happens to be my favorite — are all the sweet little baby bumps that emerge from unbuttoned trench coats and light cotton sweaters on the first day that pea coats and parkas are discarded for the season. Bellies of all shapes and sizes, donning corals and whites and lavenders, blossoming beautifully toward the warmth of the spring sun. And this year, expecting mamas seem to be e v e r y . w h e r e .

In light of all this loveliness growing around us (and, inevitably, the baby shower invitations piling up in our foyers), we’ve crafted a sweet little something that will stand out among the burp cloths and pack’n’plays on any baby registry: a belly-to-baby photography package with Chantal Lavine Photography (with a bow on top, of course)!

Mamas-to-be, you can add this to your own registry so that friends and family may contribute toward it — OR — friends and family, you can register mama as a surprise if you’re planning the details of the fête. Either way, what better way to celebrate all these new beginnings? xo

Bellies, babies, & other little blessings!
