Photographing Our Own Maternity Shoot
It was the beginning of a new year, we were newly pregnant and ready to stay on top of our blog posts. But then we quickly found out being pregnant is a lot of work! Boy, has it been a ride. We’ve had ups, we’ve had downs. The female body is an absolute mystery to me and I applaud Jade for taking on the challenges of motherhood. To be entirely honest, I don’t know if I could do it. That being said, we are almost there! With six weeks to go, we have been making preparations to welcome our baby girl, Evie Grace O’Malley, into the world. We are fully nested, in a new home, and just waiting to meet this precious miracle!
Time has flown by us in the past 8 months, and we needed to make plans to take our maternity photos. As a woman and a photographer, you can imagine Jade has had a vision of what her maternity pictures would look like for some time. What a vision it was. We made the crazy decision to take our own maternity photos! With the assistance of Jade's amazing little sister, Emma, (who is beginning to show an interest in photography!), we set out to find a beautiful open field in the heart of 4s Ranch suburbia. We had been eyeing this field for some time, and decided the time had come to go on a short adventure, finding a perfect spot for the look we had been wanting. Jade and I are so grateful that Jade's vision was brought to life! Here are some of our favorites from the shoot!
