PinkBlush Maternity Photoshoot + GIVEAWAY


It’s amazing how good I’ve felt this pregnancy, not just physically but mentally, I am so much less of an emotional roller coaster this time around. I find myself being able to embrace all the changes including the not so pleasant ones without falling to pieces. It sounds so cliche and I don’t mean to sound braggy in any way but I am in awe of the female body and constantly amazed that we are capable of creating and nurturing a life inside of u. Man, are we cool or what!?


This pregnancy has flown by! I had all these plans to do weekly updates and show you how I styled each trimester but time slipped away from me and here we are in the final leg of this journey. I realized how few belly photos I’ve actually taken, I have one for every week from my precious pregnancy but only a handful for this baby, so I threw together an impromptu maternity shoot. Normally I loathe having my photo taken especially at 20lbs above my normal weight but I wanted some photos done to remember this pregnancy. I wanted to feel effortless and beautiful and to have that “glow” that everyone talks about and I’m really pleased with how the photos turned out.
