As fun as the past nine months have been, my husband and I are ready to welcome our son into this world. With only two weeks until delivery, we decided to do a maternity shoot and have some maternity pictures for ourselves to show our baby in the future.
We loved every moment of the process, and had lots of laughs and giggles during the process.
Here are some of the pictures that stand out the most to us (even though we love them all, and can’t choose a favorite)
This picture pretty much sums up his room decor with a little hint of mom and dad.
He’s got an airplane themed room complete with a hand painted accent wall of clouds, airplanes hung from the ceiling, and bookshelves with the Dr. Seuss collection. The only thing missing in his room is a family portrait, which will get done when he arrives.
We decided to take our pictures at a peaceful location where we could feel relaxed and calm. We went to the Descanso Gardens, in Foothill, CA. Not only was the location very scenic, but it was lush green and very earthy. We even saw lots of fish in the ponds, and could hear some frogs.
This is my personal picture from our session. Ok, truth be told, I’m kind of obsessed with this picture. It is the true definition of my husband taking in parenthood, and showing his soft side. I think everything about this picture sums up our relationship. We’re always there for each other, and always put the other’s needs ahead of our own. We have come to the point in our lives where we are completely ready to put someone else’s needs ahead of our own. Baby Michael is exactly what we have been missing in our lives.
The very first item we bought for baby, even before we knew he was a boy. They have made several appearances throughout all the baby photos we have done.
Our Little Cowboy! This was the very first outfit Arthur got for Michael.
Our family is growing by two feet, and we can barely wait.
