Maternity Photoshoot: Celebrating Our First Baby

Maternity Photoshoot: Celebrating Our First Baby

My sister Kelsey is an amazing Orange County Photographer (link here). She shoots weddings, engagment photos, maternit, infant shoots, family photos, senior portraits, etc. She is an incredibly gifted woman and I am so thankful that she is not only talented, but she has such a giving heart and always offers to shoot us and capture such special treasured moments in our lives.

We wanted to take maternity photos to remember our very first pregnancy and capture this journey on footage! We are so pleased with how the photos turned out. There were so many to choose from but heres a couple just to share with you:

































Get the look: 
A lot of you have emailed me or commented below for the details on where I purchased these looks. I have included the exact floral dress below, a couple similar cream dresses, the exact fringe crocheted top im wearing, and a couple maxi skirts that would look cute to complete the look. I also shared some similar inexpensive shoe options and a hat for the floral number. HOpe this helps!

  4. the skirt was from a store called ANGL, the top is from a store in laguna beach called Two Fifty Four i believe. Thank you so much, we were really happy with how the photos turned out. Our little guy was born 2 weeks ago and is a perfect little angel. We feel so blessed! Good luck to you mama

    4. Thank you for the reply! Those are very pretty. Thanks for helping. The thing I really really loved about your top was the cap sleeves it had. Just LOVE. Did you wear a regular bra with that or did you wear a bandeau type cover? & was the floral print dress a maternity dress?

    5. No none of them were maternity (:
      I know those cap sleeves were really pretty! Thank you so much for the compliment, i wish i could help further but it was 2 years ago so i dont think they have it in stores any longer. if im ever willing to sell i will let you know!
