Maternity Photo Shoot Ideas: The Beach Sunset


Heading into the month of November and our family's annual Thanksgiving Beach Trip, Ana and I always plan out some photo shoot ideas. Her belly was a bit bigger now and we had a very beautiful background for photos: the beach.

Tips for beach maternity photo shoot: Get the sunset. The photos will naturally be beautiful because of the mom to be, but you want to get the sunset and ocean in the photos too. The background naturally brings out the beauty of the mom.

Maternity Photo Shoot Ideas: All Natural


This had to have been the simplest photo shoot of them all because it was all natural. Ana's hair and makeup wasn't done, she was wearing a super casual outfit and more than anything I just kept her laughing. We were taking a bunch of photos that day, but because she had this natural glow I wanted to strip away all the other accessories and props. I wanted her to see how beautiful she was without all of that, so I had this idea to keep it simple and even if she never posted the photos, she had them for herself to look back on.

Tips for early maternity photo shoot: Keep photographing. Make the mom-to-be laugh and laugh some more. Don't be afraid to show off the little belly. Everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin, especially during this time, and even though we sat there laughing at tree vines most of the time (you had to be there), these simplistic photos turned out wonderful.


Stay tuned for more! As Ana's belly grew, so did the photo shoots!


Things To Do This Spring


I can't believe the spring time is right around the corner. It feels like just a year ago we were going into a "lock down" and quarantine, and even though things are a little better, not everything is "back to normal" so to think of some creative things to do this spring can be a little tricky. I want to keep it simplistic and as affordable as possible, but I have come up with a list of 15 things that you can do this spring!

Maternity Photo Shoot Ideas: The Fashionista


We all knew that this series would appear eventually. I have just been collecting photos throughout the past 8-9 months to decide how I want to break this up, because as you may know...I'm going to be an aunt!! I was super excited when I found out and since I love taking photos, a great way for me to give a gift to my brother and sis-in-law is to share my skillset and get them free pregnancy photos to remember this time.



To start the series, we are going to go back to the early months of September, when we went on a weekend trip to the lake so we didn't have much to work with except well...nature. We had brought some clothes to take cute "baby bump" photos in but it seemed like nothing was working. That's when we combined this white on white outfit for a very chic look. This outfit definitely stole the show and Ana looked so "pregnant chic" we fell in love with these photos. Especially since she was still only a couple months pregnant, we had to get the angles just right to show off the bump.

Tips for early maternity photo shoot: Keep moving. The more Ana moved around, the more she laughed, the better the photo was. Even though she wasn't wearing any makeup she was glowing ✨. And this was her first set of maternity photos so these are some of our favorites. But don't worry it only gets better from here. Stay tuned for more!



I have been itching for a trip to Disney lately and I don't know how my friends read my mind because I got all the Disney gear for my birthday this year. I'm not complaining because I've been rotating the clothing items I got since last week. Another thing I got for my birthday was the Steven Madden Howler Boots in the color Sand Suede (thanks Ro!) and these boots are everything and then some. I can't take them off, they literally go with everything and are so, so, so perfect for this season.

I styled this outfit together on a whim and now I am obsessed with it. It's hip meets my childhood and it's vintage-chic. I couldn't help it, but this would be the perfect "winter time" outfit to wear in the parks. This Tigger sweater is from BoxLunch (thanks Gabe!), my faux-leather leggings are thrifted, my boots are Steve Madden, and my scrunchies and jewelry are from Forever 21
