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!
