bump : week 35



The dwindling days of late pregnancy are coming to a close, and all the time we thought we had left to finish up the tiny details is quickly passing us by.  As of today, I am thirty-six weeks and three days.  It has completely taken me off guard that many of you have checked in with us, making sure we're okay - especially since it's been a few weeks since we've jumped back into the series. To everyone that's said hello, we thank you. We're still here, just busily trying to stay on top of things around the house, meeting up with and put finishing touches on sessions with photo and video clients, taking the plunge into a brand new career (more on this later!) and basically just playing a giant game of catch up!

It has been raining here lately.  Lots of rain.  While I'm thankful for the stormy weather and Spring's appearance around Chicago, we haven't had many opportunities to be outdoors for many of our portraits. We've made the most of it last week with a few simple shots before I got ready for work, no makeup, morning hair, and cup of coffee still in hand.

You know, real life.

  1. Beautiful! You look wonderful, and content to be pregnant. I feel like some women are so eager for it to be over they actually look uncomfortable all the time. You really look like you are glowing, from the inside out. Good luck on your final weeks:)
