Last month, I shared our last photos as a family of three. And a few weeks ago, I had a chance to take some solo maternity photos with the ladies of The Fox and the Sparrow who offer pop-up sessions all around the country. Since I never had maternity photos taken when I was pregnant with Ruby (and this is the last of our babies), I took the opportunity to capture my pregnancy in a different style than my usual—a little boho, a little vintage, and a little romantic.
They took care of hair and makeup, floral crowns, and wardrobe options. It makes it super easy to just show up and not have to worry about planning anything yourself. When you're 37 weeks pregnant, achy, peeing all the time, and super tired, it's just nice to let someone make you feel like a real babe. I'm writing this post a little sleep-deprived from a newborn and a little spent from a toddler who's getting used to said newborn. So it's fun to look back at these now and think I had no idea of all the love (and exhaustion!) that would soon come my way.
So, the moral of the story is…take some maternity photos and capture that amazing time however you feel comfortable doing it. I said I didn't want to do anything with a bare belly but we found ways to show off the belly without showing it all. Have a great weekend guys!
P.S. If you're interested in a future session with The Fox and the Sparrow, you can email [email protected] to be put on their wait list for 2015. They are planning on visiting Austin in the new year. They love to travel and open to other cities that people want them to come have a pop-up!
