Our Beach Maternity Shoot

When I first found out we were pregnant, I didn’t think we would be the type to do a maternity shoot.

The Day We Found Out

One day you’re scrolling through your social media. There are all these photos of your friend’s children, with captions that read; “TMI Alert: Johnny pooped in the toilet! #proudmama”, or “sorry ahead of time for all the annoying photos.
