Lovely pics! Nice exposure and DOF effect.

The composition is wonderful as well. Allison is cognitively
relating to her child through the pictures, but the composition
also prominently exposes her belly along with her face, mirroring
this mind/child dynamic. It's also got that pictures in a picture
thing going, which is always cool :-)

I'd make lots of prints and keep that negative safe and sound.
Just great.
