I thought I'd share a few of my favorites from our maternity photoshoot that we had a few weeks ago with Rebecca from the Manzanita blog..
((spoiler alert:: Chase did not awkwardly hold my belly in any of them nor did I get half-naked or raise up my shirt to expose my popped out snooze button of a belly button))
She also did our announcement photos back in the Fall and I just love how laid back our photoshoots are. We both had a vision for a super casual, almost journalistic type photoshoot of Chase and I in our natural environment. We decided to just hang out on the sofa and I really like how intimate and not too staged the photos look. However, you know I'm a "prop" girl, so of course we had some fun extras to add some personality.
((I'm not sure why, but I am in LOVE with this one. I love that you can see the basket underneath the table with random stuff piled in and "The Church Planters Wife" book on top, you can tell I'm grinning at Chase as he way too seriously reads a silly book that I can't wait to hear him read to Little One, our favorite candle is lit, and it just feels "normal." She captured this moment perfectly.))
When I felt like Chase had had enough, Rebecca and I went outside to just get some shots of me and the baby bump. I'm so thankful to have these even though I haven't *loved* the way I look pregnant. Again, I'm learning to accept my body and the miracle that it is that I can carry a HUMAN while God grows him into our precious son. Plus, the scenery ain't bad ;)
Just in case anyone is wondering, here are some details about what I'm wearing.
