My goodness! I had the hardest time sorting through oodles of beautiful images captured by my dear photographer Sarah… it was SO hard to choose just a handful to share! Good news is there are even more for your viewing pleasure featured on The Fount Collective blog- those photos are all FILM! The ones featured here are digital, I felt like I had to show off those too! In other words, her talent has no end. My apologies for taking so long to post part 2 of our session- in case you missed part 1 you can see it here. Truth is I have hardly picked up my lap top throughout this pregnancy!

It was a goal of mine throughout these 9-10 months to really center myself. It was important to fill my days with life’s simple settling into our new home.. decorating our baby’s nursery.. and getting lots and lots of REST! Consider me warned about sleepless days and nights on end. I’ve had zero guilt taking two naps a day since leaving my day job- with occasional Netflix binges!

We’re currently 38.1 weeks and I’m ready to POP! Next blog post should be introducing you to our sweet baby boy!

All hail to the best fashion season of the year, Fall! Mosaic has all our bases covered from hair, makeup, and of course- our fav Fall fashion trends (mine is anything plaid or gingham). I recently partnered with them to highlight trends that work for a mama-to be and a go to outfit for men. My sweet husband, Alex, is by no means a guy that typically does this kind of thing- but I think he would agree that he thoroughly enjoyed choosing a look that would appeal to men of various ages, and could easily be thrown on for a weekend out n’ about. He especially loved his hair and beard cut from Floyd’s– highly recommending you see Joe!

My look came together easily with the help of the gals at Mosaic’s Madewell store. My criteria: comfy, will transition from preggers to post pregnancy, and pieces that I could mix and match throughout this Fall. And truthfully, I hadn’t worn heels since my baby shower- your girl needs to feel fancy sometimes! I’m currently 34 weeks along- hooray! The homestretch!

If you reside in the DC metro area you won’t want to miss Mosaic’s Fashion Week Kick-off Party at Angelika Film Center, beginning at 6pm Wednesday September 14th. Many of their stores will be offering special discounts along with in store events throughout the week! You can get all the details here including a peek at the other amazing bloggers participating in the event Julien, Natalie, Alicia, and Tammy.

A few weeks ago Alex and I took our maternity photos with our beloved friend, Sarah of Photos by Sarah Beth. Not only did we enjoy ourselves so much, but we were thrilled with the beautiful photos captured that day. It was so important to me to have this special time documented. Sometimes I still have to pinch myself to realize that this is actually happening. We are just about two months away from meeting our sweet boy and I still feel like I have a million and one things to do to prepare. But it’s sweet reminders like these photographs that make me stop and soak in the miracle that this pregnancy is. If you live in the DC metro area, Maryland, Northern Virginia, or anywhere on the globe (Sarah loves traveling)- she is truly the BEST and will go above and beyond to make sure you receive breathtaking images. We have to many pictures from our session that I had the hardest time choosing just a few to blog and had to break up the photos in two stay tuned for part 2 folks!
