Shortly before this shoot I got this email from mama Swalberg:

"How are you feeling these days?? Are you hoping that we will put you into labor?? We might have you laughing hard enough to just do that! or crying maybe?? Hopefully our color choices won't blind you or have you thinking "what the ... were they thinking???"

Ha ha, this made me smile. I told her I'd be eternally grateful if her family put me into labor.

But the family shoot went so smoothly, and all the kids were so good and smiley, and the fam carried all my bags for me, and carried all the furniture.....and I didn't go into labor): ):
