This pregnancy has flown by. There is literally no other way to describe it. I’ve always thought that 9 months was such a long time, but here we are at 35 weeks and I’m desperately trying to get everything ready for our baby girl.
I was honestly on the fence about whether or not I should take maternity photos, but I cannot even tell you all how very glad I am that we did. This season has rushed by with hardly any documentation on my part and I’m so thankful to have these beautiful photos to forever lock this moment in time. Not to mention the fact that my husband and I literally haven’t had any professional pictures taken of us since our wedding…four years ago.
We shot these pictures at White Rock Lake in Dallas, TX. My husband and I both have family in the area, so that lake has always been a special and familiar place to us both. It just seemed like such a natural fit for us to take these pictures with our girl by the water because it’s such a big part of who we are as a couple, and we can’t wait to introduce her to it as well.
I cannot say enough about our incredible photographer, Kacey Gilpin, either. I “met” Kacey years ago on instagram and I’ve always thought that we would get along well in real life, and I was right. Not only is she talented, but she’s also a thoughtful, hilarious, Jesus-loving mama who brought us coffee for our early shoot. You just can’t beat that.
So, here are a just a few of the pictures we took last weekend. I’m so in love with them all and I hope you enjoy them as well.
