Prepping for Baby | Clean & Safe Laundry

I’m writing this just after getting home from the store to buy drawer organizers. When I tell you the nesting bug has hit HARDCORE, I mean it. Ha. I’ve had the sweetest little helper too. Cove has been so interested in helping me with laundry, cooking, and housework. It honestly takes like three times as long to do, or I end up having to go back and re-do a lot of it, but it has been sweet memories and time with him that I am soaking up. It’s also made me highly aware of what we are using to clean…

30 Week Update

So I’m actually 31 weeks as I write this post, but I was 30 weeks when we took these pictures. I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by and how we are just a few short weeks from seeing our little love. I am so grateful he is continuing to grow on track and everything looks healthy. Due to a toddler body slam and a small measuring stomach, I have been able to see him on the ultrasound much more than I expected this late in the pregnancy and it has been a HUGE blessing. This past weekend, my…

Happy Halloween | Jurassic World & Marsupial Edition

We had to really stretch Halloween this year. Cove was really not interested in costumes, actually most of them he would melt in when I tried to put them on him. So I tried to come up with something he would love that required minimal costume and more of what he was comfortable in. He has always been a big fan of Dinosaurs and we play with them pretty frequently, so we went the Jurassic World theme and made him Owen Grady. I tried really hard to not be a pregnant Claire, but you can still see some bump showing…

36 Week Update

Its been a while since I’ve shared an update with you. Things have so busy and we’ve been having so much fun celebrating fall. For Halloween, I dressed up as a walking emoji due to the fact that I am a walking ball of hormones. I even dressed Chuck up as my side-kick. The next week, my best friends hosted the most beautiful baby shower for me. It was so beautiful, in fact, that I cried the entire time…literally, the entire time. I was just overwhelmed with all the love people have shown to our family. The following week, Ian…

The Herrin Family

It was such an honor to be able to shoot this beautiful family. Austin and Ana are head over heals in love and they have the most amazing glow. Just the week before this shoot, they tied the knot in north Georgia. They are expecting a sweet little girl at the beginning of 2016. Their eldest daughter Bella is just as gorgeous as her mother, and was so sweet.  We were so excited to be able to take their families fall photos and a maternity shoot before Austin has to leave again for the Marine Corps.

Jimmy + Jen | Maternity Shoot

It’s pretty much the best thing in the world when your best friends are pregnant the same year as you. I text Jen at least once a week with some sort of question about pregnancy, “is this normal,” or just something about babies. I LOVE it. I feel like their child is already my family. And, in a matter of days I will get to meet their sweet baby for the first time. We are rooting for a boy, but if not, Cove will already have a little soulmate:) These pictures are some of my favorite of Jimmy and Jen,…

Ian had a great time shooting this beautiful family’s spring portraits. Nathan and Megan are expecting their third little bundle of joy in just a few weeks, and Megan is absolutely glowing. Ian and I were so thrilled with how this lifestyle shoot turned out. You can see how much this family adores each other and how they have a great time together.
