Sweet Proposal & Virtual Dust

The other day, the mister really wanted to take me to a spot a little up north from where we live so I could photograph it.  I asked him which lenses I would need, he said thats for me to decide.  I think he told me it was an abandoned barn / “one of those photos you really want to get”. It wasn’t an abandoned barn and it’s actually I photo I already have / drawn to capture.

But the thoughtfulness of his proposal was too sweet to just let these photos collect virtual dust on my memory card before uploading them to the google cloud.

So here they are…. Post processed and watermarked.

Special Thanks: to #1 who quietly waited while her mother fussed with her lenses and took some pictures and to #2 who took her morning nap in the car seat.

Belly Photo Shoot

Thought I’d share a few pictures from our Maternity photo shoot (aka belly 2.0).

Major thanks to our photographer for capturing these precious memories.  I really appreciate how tasteful and that they capture the stage of life we are experiencing.

If you are on the fence about getting a maternity photo shoot – I would definitely recommend it.  Here are the reasons why I did it

  1. Celebrate the transformations: Because it is a true blessing.  This is the few times in life where you body grows in ways that it never can and having a keepsake of the changes is ahh-mazing.
  2. Family bonding:  Yes we can read big sister and new baby books, nothing is sweeter than having your kid on the outside give your kid on the inside a high five :)
  3. Photos can help you remember: Everyone says it goes by in a flash but having a physical photo can trigger a feeling or emotion – and it’s true a picture speaks a thousand words.
