Photos by TRACEY LAYNE PHOTOGRAPHY
First of all, can we have a moment of silence for this incredible gown from @fillyboomaternity
I searched and searched for the perfect dress for this shoot, and then a good friend (I actually think it was Tracy, my amazing photographer for this shoot) told me about Fillyboo, and I was blown away when I saw their website and the dresses.
Just go look at them, I promise you will be obsessed like I am. This dress made this shoot absolute perfection.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do solo maternity photos since I did a shoot with my children and Jeff, BUT I am so glad I did. Pregnancy is just so magical and really, once you aren’t pregnant anymore, you realize how short pregnancy really is. This pregnancy was very special for me. It was, in a very real way, redemption for me, my soul, and my body.
I remember feeling so ready to deliver my other babes, but when I hit 38 weeks with this pregnancy, it was different. I was uncomfortable but I felt really good. I remember thinking, “Is this really it? Is it really time?”
I will forever be grateful for that feeling, for that pregnancy, for all my pregnancies, for my body, for all of those beautiful pregnancy moments, and even more for the difficult ones.
AND, I am grateful for these photos.
I don’t know if I will ever be pregnant again, so these photos and all the other pregnancy photos, will be cherish forever!
