Welcome back. I am a few months behind, okay a handful of months behind on blogging content to share with you all. Things have been busy and an adjustment with a new baby. Today, I am sharing a look into our maternity photo shoot. We had a session with a local photography in late January, about 6 weeks before Beckett made her 6-day-late entrance. My husband and I have not gotten professional photographs together since we got married 5 years ago. Our wedding and engagement session?
I really wanted to remember this big milestone in our family so we braved the Indiana January freezing cold to get some great moments. We had never taken family photos that included Lilly, our fur baby, she is only four and she joined our family after our last session five years ago. I cannot say enough about these photographs Erica Rayl Photography captured of our growing family. The location was spot on! Ladies who are pregnant and wondering what to wear during your maternity shoot, I recommend a dress. You can always wear pants in photographs, but I think a dress will look much better and really go a long way from your everyday wear. I picked out my dress and then we put together items my husband already owned. I must say, I am happy with our wardrobe choices. This handsome man has been hands down the best husband and daddy. It has been a difficult year but I knew he would move mountains to shine as the best daddy to Beckett, and Lilly. Though the last year was not easy with his job lay-off, he stepped right up to cook, clean and take care of this preggo lady. Sometimes life is hard and exciting all at once. It definitely was not the ‘plan’ but we are surviving and making the best life. I always tell myself during the hard times, ‘it could always be worse, and to look at the positives’.
