this past weekend Jordan and I met Brittany
at the Clear Creek Heritage Park
for some intimate photos to celebrate our baby boy! maternity photos weren’t something I was sure about this time around.. it being my third pregnancy and fourth baby. but that said, he’s my last baby. the perfect caboose to our girl train.
I know I keep saying it, but I literally cannot contain how excited I am to meet this baby boy.
what color is his hair?
what does his nose and precious profile look like?
does he favor his daddy or does he favor his mama?
..and basically kiss his little cheeks off.
I’m walking into 30 weeks and we are in the single digit countdown if this boy follows suit of his sisters before him.
I’m so glad to have these photos to cherish. they turned out perfect.
and Jordan is wearing a cardigan, so.. theres that (heart eyes!)
it was 34 degrees and SO cold, but there was no wind at all and the sun was shining.. oh who am I kidding, it was so freaking cold. we were drinking coffee in attempts to stay warm, but by mid-shoot the hot coffee was definitely iced:) Brady was dancing in my belly and right as my belly touched Jordan’s he kicked as hard as his little legs could kick- we busted out laughing so hard about it!
it “snowed” here in Dallas the day before and the flurries were still sprinkled throughout the woods.
goodness. if Brady is half as cute as his daddy we are going to be in such big trouble.
also, lets all tell Jordan how good he looks in a cardigan, shall we?
after coming up with a variety of ideas for this photoshoot, we ultimately decided that the smoke effect we had seen on Pinterest and social media would be SO cool. Britt researched what we needed to buy in hopes to get that amazing plume effect and we were all set!
okay, not quite the look we had ultimately hoped for.
as the smoke surrounded me I was dying laughing and then choking and then laugh-choking. all I could think about was “stop, drop, and roll“, but you know, rolling isn’t exactly what I am capable of doing right now.. I have a rather large mass protruding from my mid-section. and there was no fire, folks just to make that clear! just a lot of smoke.
Jordan tripped and fell at some point while trying to move the smoke around but.. yea I never saw that.
as the smoke began to clear it kind of hung in the cool air making it look like the most amazing fog in the break of the early morning.
a way cooler effect than plumes of smoke, right?
oh, and had to represent the slippers and thermal socks I wore under my skirt.
hey! my toes were the only thing NOT frozen, thats for sure.
for you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
