Maternity Shoot











I'm going to share with you this week all the professional pics I've been lucky enough to have taken.  I was so so thankful that we were able to squeeze these in just days before Luna was born!  I wanted to have some good photos, but I must admit that some maternity photos really make me cringe so I didn't know if I wanted any taken.  You really have to trust someone with maternity photos I think.  Well, during most of my pregnancy I didn't know anyone I could trust- I was afraid if I'd hire someone I would be sitting forced to take awkward half naked belly shots and I would hate the memory of me looking really awkward with a basketball belly captured forever.  Well- then sometime in the fall I started getting to know these blogger girls in real life.  I just got to know Andi and was afraid I would be a little too forward asking her to take some photos, but I had this last minute strong strong desire to have these moments captured.  So I e-mailed Andi hoping she could squeeze it in, but thinking that maybe she would be too busy.  I was so so thankful and felt so at ease with her.  Obviously Sam did too.  You must hire Andi to take some photos for you.  I'm telling you, she has a gift and a special way of capturing life. I love every single photo she took.  You can see a few more here.  I think you know when a photographer is talented when you feel so so very happy and it brings you back to that moment every time you look at them.  It's a sweet memory of us just before our family became 3!  I don't think we had photos of us taken like that since our wedding, it was so fun!

I can't wait to have Andi take some more cute candid shots of our little family!

These are such sweet pictures of you and Sam. I'm like you--I don't like the usual maternity shoot pictures. I'm glad you didn't spell 'baby' on your belly with blocks or have them taken with a Sears backdrop...

Yours are so natural and pretty. Can't wait to see the family of three pictures :)
