walk on the beach

So, I'm finally getting caught up in the blog world, since having our baby girl this past May! The end of my pregnancy so was so insanely busy with work and getting things ready for the baby that I just did not have time to blog. I'm now wrapping up my maternity leave (going back to work tomorrow) so I thought I would take the time to post the last couple maternity shoots that I did before I had the baby (birth story to come soon)!

We shot this look on our family vacation to Florida early this Spring while taking a walk on the beach. This was one of my go-to looks throughout my pregnancy. A good chambray shirt is definitely an essential maternity wardrobe item. Mine isn't even a maternity shirt- it's on that I had pre-pregnancy! It's so easy to throw on over a tee, tank, or dress. Sometimes I would even button up the top and tie it above my belly when wearing a dress! Of course, a good pair of maternity jeans and a comfy pair of sneakers go a long way too!

Looking at these pictures makes me seriously miss my bump! I love being pregnant!

Striped Bomber

I came across this outfit shoot from last Spring, that somehow got lost in the abyss of my camera's SD card... I thought, why not post it anyways! Better late than never, right?! This was actually one of my favorite looks last Spring and is one of my favorites now. I love a good bomber jacket, because it's so versatile. Here I paired it with a relaxed tank, distressed denim, and ankle boots! For cool summer nights, I love this jacket with a pair of denim cutoffs, gladiator sandals, and a graphic tank!

our family of 3... soon to be 4!

Photos c/o: Perry James Photography

So, I had really been wanting to do one last photo shoot of us as a family of three before baby girl arrives this May (which is SO soon! Ahh!!!) Thankfully my soon-to-be brother in law, Perry, (who is also am amazing photographer) happened to be on vacation with us last month and was sweet enough to snap a few shots of us on the beach!

It was a super quick, simple shoot but I absolutely adore the way these photos turned out! Seeing my husband and little boy's smiling faces (and that healthy, growing baby bump) are beautiful reminders of how good God has been. I am so thankful for this growing family of mine and I can't wait to see all the good things that are yet to come for us!

Here's to the next 7 weeks of pregnancy, and to the many, many adventurous months ahead of life with a toddler AND a newborn!
