From the photographer:

Sigh. When a dancer is pregnant, she’s bound to be gorgeous. Case in point: Kate. Check her out. GORGEOUS. Kate and Ryan are going to be fabulous parents. And I do mean fabulous. The first time I met Kate, we were both volunteering in the children’s ministry at our church, and all the kids just LOVED her. I remember sitting back for a second and just watching her and learning from her. She’s quite amazing indeed.

Please keep the K family in your prayers as they prepare for Ellie’s birth.
