What can I say? I'm happy for ya'll and good luck...you were supposed to do 'hugs and kisses'...not 'holding' ;>)

But the message is perceived and the photo should do well.

this is a beautiful capture.. i now see how a well manicured hand can make a lot of difference in the picture with hands - her nails are almost shining - coming from a guy who cuts the nails by biting :) - 8!

This one just weired me out; sorry. The brown tummy line, I forgot about that. My wife is pregnant with our sixth child, best to you and yours.

The light just seems over-powering on this and perhaps softening it up with a little less light too would have worked better (for me - not that it matters but I'm just sayin' and giving my impressions).

Maybe at an angle so that the size of the tummy shows too and the brown tummy line doesn't. Kind regards and best to you.
