a comfy maternity shoot

I know you've heard me go on and on about my sweet friend Makenzie and her photos.  But I just really love them.  I love how simple they are.  I love how real life they are.  I love how natural they are.

After thinking about possible ideas on where to get our maternity/family pictures done, I finally landed on our home.  I wanted these photos to reflect our lives - as if Makenzie randomly showed up to our house with her camera in hand to capture some moments that were already happening.  No makeup, no fancy clothes, and no organized props.  The 3 (or, I guess, 4) of us just snuggled up our bed and Makenzie went to town. 

Here are some of my favorites:

Then, we did a couple of shots outside.

I had to end with that one.  Apple doesn't fall far, does it?

We are so, so pleased with these photos.  I love having these moments captured as an almost family of 4.  These were taken at 34 weeks and I'm currently 36 weeks and a couple of days.  The time is drawing near!

If any of you are looking for a really great photographer, check out Makenzie's website and get in touch with her!


  1. These are lovely. What nice memories. I especially love the black and white one near the end of you snuggled up to Duke. Also, your husband has incredible hair.

  2. These are so cute! I love when pictures are taken inside the house like that. She did a great job, and you look fantastic!
