All of the photos I have hanging around our TV in the family room were taken by her and it makes me happy that I have so many special times in our lives documented. I can’t wait to add to our collection with an upcoming newborn session, and Christmas photos this November!
So a little backstory on this particular photo shoot. I asked Courtney early on in my pregnancy (when I was booking her for our newborn session) if I should do maternity photos again. I wasn’t really feeling like it was necessary since I just did them last year with Aiden, and she confirmed my feelings by saying I definitely didn’t have to. Fast forward to this past July and Courtney posted on Facebook about a mini-shoot she was offering in August for a special rate. I thought to myself how that would be perfect for family/maternity photos at a great price. But with everything going on between packing, moving, all while pregnant I just thought there was no way we could squeeze that in the schedule. I certainly didn’t have time to figure out what everyone was going to wear, make sure we had haircuts, and prepare for this sort of thing. So I reluctantly let the opportunity pass us.
Fast forward again to August 17. Just one week before closing on our new house and moving! Courtney posted something like this on Facebook and I felt like it was written for me, and only me: “I had a last minute cancellation for my August mini shoot this Saturday morning, so if you were on the fence, take this as your sign and call me to schedule.” I knew it was crazy, but I just couldn’t pass it up again. This was definitely my sign. I messaged her right away and said we would take it. The shoot was only a day and a half away. I had absolutely NO time to prepare, which in a weird way, was utterly refreshing and perfect. 90% of our clothes were packed, haircuts and pedicures didn’t matter, and we were just going to show up. I knew I would never regret having family pictures taken.
So here we are. A true real life depiction of my family. Just one week before we moved in our dream home, and 10 weeks before we welcome our newest addition.
30 week bump with baby boy #2.
This face lights up our world.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out our little family <3
