The noise of the circular saw in the background, the rhythmic hammering of nails, persistent and growing layers of dust no matter how hard you try to keep it at bay. This was the location for my pregnancy shoot with Michelle – that classic “Grand Designs” kind of situation where you plan massive works on the house and get pregnant with twins at the same time… pretty impressive!

 
We shot in three stages – 6 months, 8 months and then when their two little boys were 7 wks. Capturing this incredible journey (all the while we were thinking she couldn’t get any bigger, lo and behold….), here’s a selection of the images:
