My sweet friend Sarah took these pictures for us a couple weeks ago, and.....wait for it....this was her FIRST maternity shoot, ever.


Sarah just launched her official photography business and I could not possibly be more proud of her. It can be super nerve-wracking to release your art into the world, but I think we all can agree: the girl's got skill. I am so thankful to have these gorgeous photos to document our last few weeks as a family of three. Thank you, Sarah!

our maternity photos with EPlove.

So, here's the deal. The real deal. I've had a big photographer crush on Rog and Lyndzee from EPlove for a loooooong time. As in, I creepily stalk their blog every day and never leave comments but just sigh to myself at how pretty their pictures are. When it came time to do "real" maternity pictures (see: pictures not taken by Brett and not taken in our backyard), I knew I would do just about anything to work with these guys. So I pleaded and begged until they agreed to fly all the way to Sacramento just to take pictures of my belly. Lyndzee flew in at 8:00am and we spent the whole day together eating and shopping and talking about all things mommyhood, marriage, and photography. It was amazeballs, and we are basically best friends now. Yay for us. I love love love these pictures, and am so glad Brett and I have such beautiful reminders of this special time in our lives. Thank you Lyndzee for capturing us and the belly so well!
