One thing I knew I wanted to do from the moment we found out we were pregnant was have a maternity session! With the move to the West Coast happening so recently and our lives feeling like it was all over the place, we weren’t sure if it was going to happen. Though it took a bit of searching, we’re so happy we found Taylor Kinzie Photography (on Pinterest, actually)! We asked for light, airy, sweet and a setting with rolling hills andddd we’re obsessed with how they turned out.
These b&w ones may be two of my favorite photos ever taken of us.
This was the perfect way to capture our first few months in California as a family. After what felt like forever of trying to conceive, every milestone we hit, every trimester we reached and even seeing those strange fruit comparisons each week was something I didn’t take for granted. Ian and I had a blast during this pregnancy and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. *Praise for no morning sickness and good news at every prenatal visit!* Carrying another human is a beautiful balance of hard work and having grace for yourself, especially through the uncertainties and those body changes! I have definitely had to learn to embrace them but as I write this at 6 weeks postpartum, all of it is SO SO SO worth it.
