Hi. certainly one of the orb weavers in he Araneidae family. this venter is not one I am familiar with so no speculation for species. This time of year, they are becoming adult, sometimes gravid so they can put on he mass.
Only a hunch here but may be Araneus marmoreus, marbled orb weaver, the orange ones, affectionately called pumpkin spiders look to be carrying a tiny pumpkin:

Sadly, these very harmless spiders soon die after laying and hiding eggs, Lucky is having an offspring around next season.
