Since Josiah and I decided not to make our pregnancy public, I didn’t participate in a lot of the pregnancy milestones that many people do. We did not have a gender reveal party (we didn’t even find out the gender of our baby until she was born!) We didn’t post weekly bump photos or make boards with the baby’s growth and progress.
But one thing that we did do, and I am so glad we did, was a pregnancy photo shoot. My friend Molly talked me into it after I saw how amazing her family photos came out. So at thirty-something weeks pregnant, I bought a dress on amazon, got my hair done and made my husband dress up in his best suit.
These photos don’t just mark a time in my life when I was pregnant, they’re also just super cute family photos. I am so happy we were able to take Lindy Ruff along with us, too. Our family just isn’t complete without that four-legged pup. And now that Daisy’s here, our family is even more complete. I’m so happy that we have these photos to remember such a special time in our lives.
These photos were taken by the amazing Erika Moeller from EMoeller Photography and if anyone is in the Buffalo, NY area I highly recommend her! She made this shoot so fun and made me feel amazing during it. Which honestly was a win in itself since I felt like a huge whale during this stage in my pregnancy. I had such a great experience as a matter of fact, that I will be doing a pregnancy photo shoot again if we ever have another baby!
