Maternity Shoot

I feel like I am most awkward when in front of a camera.  Lucky for me my uncle is a GREAT photographer and managed to make me feel more at ease in our maternity shoot.  You can check him out at and browse through all of his galleries.  I used a few shoots I found through Pinterest for inspiration (here and here), and we tried to create a super calm and peaceful atmosphere.  I’m not a big “prop” person with pictures…I like basic colors and simplicity.  I love the way all of these turned out!  These are just a few of my favorites.  Now the final countdown is on – 60 days until baby girl’s due date!

Here she is.  This has got to be the coolest thing Jordan & I have ever done.  I can’t really put into words how I feel yet about becoming a mother.  Excited, scared, overwhelmed, overjoyed…I go back and forth between the positive and the negative emotions.  Of course I am ecstatic, but let’s be real.  We are about to be responsible for the most precious thing God could give someone.  Her entire future and well being rests on us…kind of a big deal.  I am looking forward most to the little things.  The smell of baby lotion, watching her sleep, cuddling up next to her for a nap.  Thinking of those things calms me down and makes me think we will be just fine.
