Rounding out the 9th month of pregnancy I have been pleasantly surprised as to how well my skin has looked. During college I had wonderful skin, then in the years after that it became a totally disaster. Because of this I was really afraid the pregnancy hormones were going to throw it back into its old gross state. Thankfully I have found (and stuck with) a few products that managed it wonderfully, and I haven’t gotten a single breakout. I also have been very strict with taking care of the rest of my skin to avoid stretch marks. Luckily I haven’t spotted any of those, either. I just recently added the Baby Bee products into my routine. I read that it would be a good idea to do this to get our fur babies used to the smell when she arrives – sounded like a good idea to me! The best part of the “beauty” side of being pregnant has definitely been my hair. My hair has grown SO much during the pregnancy, and I feel like it’s so much more full and shiny than it ever has been. The only downside is it has tended to get greasy a lot faster than usual. Nothing a little dry shampoo doesn’t fix!
As the leaves change colors and the wind picks up this classic look never fails. I live and die by my Longchamp…it seriously matches every outfit and holds SO much!

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 www.briandeanphotography.com 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!
