"So I said, 'Wow. How many months will I be on the 29th?'"When Nicole Ham had the idea to take a photoshoot for her birthday inspired by those staged by many new parents, her longtime friend Stephanie Smith, who owns Southern Stitched Photography in South Carolina, agreed to help ..With Ham's birthday coming up, she and Smith wanted to pull off a unique photoshoot to celebrate."Being 28 and single, one day you wake up and your newsfeed is flooded with engagements, baby announcements and weddings," Smith said."
