Pregnancy brings on all sorts of emotions. I have experienced all of the standard pregnancy feelings everyone knows about such as crying at Pampers commercials, total unexplainable rage towards my husband and the typical panic of trying to accomplish everything in the world before my due date (I’m not sure if they’ve done any studies on babies born into homes with disorganized closets, but I am sure there must be a negative affect, right?). All of this is familiar territory from my first pregnancy.
One emotion that I didn’t experience the first time around was a sentimentality for our little family unit of three. I cannot wait for our little girl to get here but this also feels like a really precious time for us with Leo. He is changing so much every month; and in a few short weeks he is going to lose his only child status and become a big brother. I can’t wait to see how my little boy tackles these big changes ahead.
Around Mother’s Day I looked for a photo of me and Leo to post on this little blog and I discovered that I only had a handful of Instagrams of us together and nothing even close to a “real picture.” My sentimentality kicked in and I decided that we needed to document this special time in our lives with a little photo shoot. I found Erin at Hello Pinecone via the 100 Layer Cakelet blog and I instantly loved her work.
Erin was so great to shoot with; it felt like an old friend stopped by for a few hours with her camera. We are so happy with the photos. Here are a few shots from our session… it’s just like every other morning… where I wake up in full hair and make-up and we go about our morning routine front of a professional photographer…
