2020 has been such a weird year to be pregnant – always that underlying fear of COVID, going to doctor appointments alone, can’t have regular baby showers, etc. Although it has been different, it has still been special and I’m so glad to have captured this second go round of pregnancy in these maternity pictures. They were taken by my aunt Julie (@in.a.clickphotog on IG) in Marathon, Tx. It’s the tiniest, cutest little town about an hour and a half from where we live with the prettiest scenery. These were taken at the Gage Hotel & on a random road out of town a bit. I was nervous we weren’t going to get pictures done because we are now on crunch time. I’m 35 weeks today and with the holidays keeping us busy all through November/December, I put so much off until this last month. Maternity pictures, finishing nursery, and basically getting EVERYTHING ready for baby…including picking a name! lol The third trimester this time around has been a lot harder physically, so I am more than ready for her to arrive. Counting down the weeks!
Also, I didn’t want to splurge on a fancy dress to only wear one time, so I found this “traveling dress” which is the coolest idea! This shop on Etsy has several dresses that are seriously STUNNING and you pay to rent for a week before it’s sent to the next girl – perfect for maternity & bridal shoots. I will link the shop below!
Mila’s dress is an Amazon purchase – seriously SO CUTE for special events especially as flower girl dresses and come in several colors. It’s only around $20!
