I’m so excited to finally share my maternity photo shoot! It’s funny, I almost didn’t do any at all. But, I wanted to remember this special time. I’m so glad I ended up doing them. And, I ended up shooting these maternity photos the day before I went into labor! Talk about good timing. I’m lucky to have this blog that has documented my entire pregnancy. But I still wanted a special maternity photo shoot to commemorate my pregnancy. Honestly, I still can’t believe Lincoln was in my belly! I miss feeling his little kicks, but being able to hold him in my arms is a million times better.
Fortunately, I have the best photographer ever. Paige shoots almost everything for Polished Closets, so of course I wanted her to take these special photos. It is so important to have someone you feel comfortable with, and Paige makes everything feel so natural. We shot these in my backyard, and I love the natural feel to them. You all probably know by now that I’m not one for themes or over-the-top stunts. So, I wanted everything simple and minimal for this maternity photo shoot.
Now, let’s talk about this gorgeous dress. Again, I elected to wear something simple and classic. This black Rachel Pally dress is perfect. Not only does it fit while pregnant, but I can even wear it now (aka after baby). I have a wedding coming up in May, and plan to wear it there! Nothing is better than a classic black dress that is perfect for almost any occasion. This is one of the most comfortable dresses because of the soft and stretchy cotton. Another thing I love about this dress is the tie waist. It adds a feminine touch and helps define your waist. Also, if you want a brighter look, this dress comes in white!
