Pregnancy is really hard. Like for something so enjoyable to make happen – – let’s just say that evolution has it all figured out. Very tricky… Verrrrry tricky.
Disclaimer: I have felt pretty cute my whole pregnancy. Like as far as self esteem goes – I was worried I would be horrified: But I honestly felt the glow. Probably cutting out chugging wine and eating like shit really helps. (Those two went hand in hand for me).
I am proud of my shape. I’m proud of myself for being able to keep as active as I was before I became pregnant. I feel strong and toned and sexy.
When my friend Holly suggested maternity photos – I admitted that I thought about it.
We have been really possessive of our little bump. Like clearly I wear sticky every day – but we like: didn’t want to share on social media or send a ton of photos — it’s OUR bump and we want it all to ourselves.
So, how did we get to taking maternity photos? I think the hormones got the better of me. I was like: we do love our bump, and let’s cherish this time in our lives that is such important first (sorry second child). So we did it.
I found Brandy @ Fresh Sugar via the Google Machine.
She’s done some really awesome work with the Children’s Hospital that melted my heart. That was the difference that set Fresh Sugar aside – it was just a vibe I got from Brandy’s Blog, pro bono work and Portfolio. We signed up.
Brandy’s studio is out of her beautiful home. We immediately felt comfortable. She is so welcoming and personable. I felt like I had known her forever!
Here is our sneak peek as posted on the Fresh Sugar Blog:
A super special thanks to my gorgeous Husband who gave me the gift of pregnancy and a family of our own.
