Maternity Photo Session

First, I apologize for the repeat information. If you follow me on Facebook, you have most likely seen some of the photos from our maternity photo session a couple of weeks ago, but I thought I would showcase them on the blog too.

Our friend Christian did an incredible job of capturing the day for us. I have to admit, I almost backed out of having our pictures taken altogether. The morning of the shoot I woke up cranky, tired and with a horrible attitude. We had been going a million miles an hour with baby showers and visiting family, and I was having a really bad "poor me" day. I felt huge, and didn't want to spend the day capturing how horrible I felt I looked. I'll  blame it on the hormones. Thankfully I snapped out of it, and I'm so glad I did. Christian could obviously read my mind and really focused on the fact that I'm carrying a miracle inside of me and not on my chubby cheeks. It's pretty great to have a photographer that "gets it." I'm so happy with how our photos turned out. The memories from that day will last a lifetime. 

What really made the day special was when Christian explained to us that many couples don't feel comfortable together getting photos taken. I get that. It's always awkward having a camera in your face, but he said Todd and I were just so naturally comfortable around each other. It was such a special reminder that not only is God blessing me with an amazing little girl, but that I get to raise her with my best friend in the entire world. There is nobody I'm more comfortable around. I'm more comfortable in my own skin when Todd is around. I really, really love that boy.

So, if you're up for seeing our photos again, here you go!

Such a special day...and the rain made it even better!
