Once our baby started to really show itself and this belly of mine began to grow (and grow and grow), I knew I wanted to have some tangible memories of this fleeting time. It’s been quite a journey to get to this moment! We are lucky to have friends who are also talented photographers, and Idie understands our mountain style. One lovely day not long ago, we took Cholula up to a favorite pine-filled trail and giggled while she snapped some shots. We took a few more photos at home, and just like that, our photo shoot was over. It felt so casual and unplanned, and I wasn’t sure what to expect- but the photos had to be better than the many mirror selfies I’ve taken in the bathroom with my iPhone over the last 9 months. When she sent us the finished photographs, we were blown away- somehow during our silly jaunt in the snow, she captured all sorts of little joyful moments. All I see is love. I love these photos of our family-to-be (including our fur-baby) and know that someday we’ll look back warmly on these days right before new parenthood. Here are a few of our favorites!
And here are some of my favorite outtakes from the day! We had a blast!

I love these!
These photos are truly stunning. They capture so much love and joy. I DIE for that black and white one of you two (actually three!) on the couch. PERFECTION
That’s one of my favorites, too! You are so lucky to have an in-house photographer. 🙂
BEAUTIFUL – just love the naturalness and casualness – that is what makes photos come alive and feel the love radiating right at you 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing – Happy Day – Enjoy!
I love that the casualness comes across. That’s what I was hoping for. Tick tock, tick tock…

I am an old school photographer in that I prefer the naturalness of landscapes (and casualness if I take portraits). I amaze myself some times in what I just shoot raw and real!
