"We shot these photographs a couple of weeks before my son was born. It was summer and I was nine months pregnant. I was running out of things to wear. Our friend Alex came and helped pick things out for the photos. I was too shy to be naked - sometimes I regret it because Ellen’s photos are so beautiful. Maybe next baby. I made carrot cake and when we were done for the day we ate it, sitting on the floor because our house is too small for a proper table. It was still warm. The icing melted."
