This is a very exciting time for me and Adrian as we are patiently and anxiously waiting to meet our precious baby girl! We can’t wait to see who she looks like, what her personality is like, what her sleeping/eating habits are, and most of all, we can’t wait to hold and kiss her! We expect to face challenges we’ve never known before but at the same time to grow and mature both as individuals and in our relationship together. I’ve been looking through photos from my pregnancy journey this past year and wanted to share some of those moments before she arrives!
Here’s how we told the family the big news…we set up the camera for a “family portrait” and just before clicking the shutter we pulled out a sign saying “We’re Pregnant.” My sister’s reaction is the best! I was 9 weeks at the time.
16/17 weeks attempting to show my “bump”:
Finding out the gender at 18 weeks…it’s a girl!!!
20 weeks…half way there!
26 weeks/5 year wedding anniversary! I was shooting a wedding all day so these were the only pics we could snap:
28 weeks – my dear, amazing, majorly talented friend and photographer, Diana Lupu, did a maternity shoot for us! I absolutely LOVE the pics and will cherish them forever. You can see lots more on her blog here.
Also at 28 weeks – I’m glad to see that pregnancy doesn’t have to interfere with my line of work :)
29 weeks – me and Adrian photographed a wedding at an adorable goat farm in North Carolina:
To celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary and as our “babymoon,” we took an 11-day trip to Italy when I was 30-31 weeks pregnant…many more pics from that trip coming soon!
At 34 weeks my amazing friends and family threw me a breathtaking baby shower!
The very sweet and beautiful organizers:
My sister and best friend:
The love of my life and daddy-to-be!
Highlight of the evening was my surprise gift from Adrian…a new CAR!!!
38 weeks…it’s Christmas!
40 weeks on my due date and so ready to pop!
I hope to share photos of our baby girl very soon…hopefully she doesn’t keep us waiting much longer!
