Family/Maternity Photos

Happy Thursday you guys! 

I debated on getting maternity photos with my second babe for a long time. This second pregnancy has been ROUGH. Although I'm fortunate I haven't had any complications with this one like I did with Lillian. It doesn't change the fact that I've been feeling super exhausted, sore and emotional. 
I thought I would be more accepting this time around with all the changes happening to my body as it was hard first time around, but honestly because I think we did these babes back to back, it's even harder on my body + mental state. I am currently almost 35 weeks and still trying to come to terms with the amount of stretch marks have shown up ALL OVER my body. Like guys, this is insane. But again, still trying to accept this. 

I posted a question box on my Instagram one day and asked all my fellow mamas if I should get Maternity photos done and literally EVERYONE said do it or I would probably regret it. And you guys were so right. Preston also was super supportive and said the same thing! I also took advantage of the fact that we haven't had family photos professionally done, EVER. So I wanted some of us 3 before our little guy arrives. 

I can't thank Ashley enough for capturing these moments for us, she is seriously the most gentle, kind soul. If anyone local is in need of a photographer, please get in contact with her! She is AMAZING.

So mamas, if you are debating on getting maternity photos for whatever reason, JUST DO IT. I am so thankful for everyone encouraging me to go through with it. And now look, we will have these moments to look back on for the rest of our lives. You are beautiful ladies, in EVERY pregnancy. And take that time to cherish your body and the beautiful thing it is doing. 

If you guys are still here, thank you so much for taking the time to look at these photos. We are so excited to bring another little babe into the world! 

Lots of love,
