Since I didn’t blog for an entire year I feel like I have a lot of photos I want to share here. I feel like a part of me is playing catch up, like you would with an old friend you haven’t seen in awhile. I have so much to share with you all. I promise I won’t go overboard with too much from 2016 but I really want a place for all of these great memories to sit online instead of sitting in folders on my dropbox. For instance these photos from our maternity session, my trip to New York(post coming soon!) and even photos from our honeymoon in Italy. I have tons of photos from all of our trips so I’m excited to go through everything and share them here.
First up, my maternity photos. I wasn’t planning on sharing these(especially because they’re about 4 months overdue) but this was still a part of my life I really enjoyed and love that we documented. I was starting to REALLY feel pregnant at this phase and was so exhausted so we almost didn’t get photos taken. But I’m so glad we ended up getting these done. I loved everything about being pregnant(except that last month, it was a doozy) and I loved getting photos of my growing bump taken but Aaron and I rarely have photos taken of us together so this was really special. Plus it was really nice to get dressed up, really different from the yoga pants I wear every day. These were taken by our friends over at Deer Lovers(they took our engagement + wedding photos!) and they did such a good job. It’s so crazy how amazing the human body is. Like I grew a human in my belly and now she’s almost 4 months old. So insane!
I don’t think I ever shared this about Emma here but she’s actually named after my grandma who passed away almost 4 years ago. After my grandma passed I got matching “Emma” tattoos with my Mom and I knew immediately that if we ever had a daughter she’d be named after her. I miss my grandma every single day and although Emma will never get to meet her great grandma I’m so happy we got to pass this little piece of her on. This is so meaningful to me and I will cherish this tattoo forever. <3
