The past two weeks have been full of sleepless nights, crying temper tantrums, diaper changes and lots and lots of feedings. This morning baby Carlota was in her monster phase…which means she is finally fast asleep for a couple of hours and I have a few minutes to finally get a blog post in. I wouldn’t change it for the world!! We have so much love for our little munchkin and its all worth it.
These amazing magical fairy-esque photos are from my Maternity photoshoot with Shawna at Bleudog Fotography. For weeks prior to the shoot, I was debating whether to take maternity photos. I was looking online for photographers in the area and I think I contacted over 20 photographers/studios before finding this gem. Many had photo libraries of shoots that were not the vision I had in mind. The ones that had photos I liked cost a fortune, or weren’t located close to me. I started to get discouraged and thought about possibly not taking maternity photos. I was already feeling huge and not very glamorous. Did I really want to pay for photos that I’m just going to be disappointed with? Looking back at these pictures I am so happy I did them. Finding a photographer that has a similar vision or style is key to a successful photoshoot. Pregnancy is such a magical time in your life and I’m so thrilled Shawna was able to capture it so well for me. I will forever cherish my time having baby girl so close to my heart, feeling her kick and hiccup.
