We had the BEST time last week in South Florida!
We were on the gulf coast, and spent every morning visiting the beach & the pool, and every afternoon napping. It was the PERFECT vacation for a (perpetually tired) pregnant momma!
Y'all know I love photos. Some photographers don't like to be in front of the camera, but I love to be in our family's photos. I practice what I preach- MOMMAS, GET IN THE PHOTO! WE EXIST, TOO!
I feel like maternity photos are a special thing I can do for my baby. I want her to know she was loved and anticipated and celebrated. I'll be honest-- the afternoon before we went out to take these images, I looked at my husband and said something to the tune of, "I reeeeaaaalllly don't feel like doing this."
But, with so many things in life, you're happy once you've done it! Like working out, or doing that task you've been putting off, or even sometimes even just putting on real clothes and going out to eat- It's so much easier to just chill and watch TV, but doing *the thing* is always better in the long run.
My sweet little ladies had fun watching the sunset at the beach, too!
Usually I recommend mommas wait until 30 - 34 weeks for thier maternity sessions, maternity photos done sometime between 30 - 34 weeks.
I'm only 26 weeks in these photos, but because this is my third, my bump is as big as a first-time mom at 32 weeks.
For these photos, my sweet husband helped out. I got the camera all set up for him, and he did a great job catching focus!
I wore my FAVORITE dress, the one I ask just about every maternity client to try on. It fits like a glove, shows off the bump, and as a bonus-- it's fun to play with the color of it in photoshop afterwards!
Make it pink! No, make it blue!

I love my little "girl squad" so much and can't wait to add one more little lady to the tribe!
