Maternity Photos in the Oakland Redwoods

When we found out we were expecting with P I never had maternity photos done and to be honest I never really missed the fact that I didn't do them. But there is something about this pregnancy that feels different and I think that is because I know it is my last. I want to embrace all the things about it (and try and grin and bare the crappy parts of it). So at 34 weeks pregnant we booked a session.

I am so happy I decided to do them. I started the day by getting a blowout at our Drybar that just opened in town (best decision of the day), I prepped P with a big talk about how the photos were important to mama and to be on her best behavior (she totally was) and I rented my dream maternity dress ("The Wonder Years" in blush by Fillyboo Maternity) from Mama Bump Rentals. Even David - who normally despises a photoshoot was awesome. Despite all the nose nuzzling he was made to do.

My friend Aliza of Aliza Hallett Photography took our photos and made everything so easy (and she is 28 weeks along with her third!). It was such a fun memory and now I have so many beautiful images to look back on such a special time in my life!

And ZERO of this post is sponsored just in case anyone is wondering :)
