A little over a month ago, when I was about 27 1/2 weeks, Troy and I did a weekend getaway/babymoon/birthday celebration in Palm Springs and decided to do maternity photos while we were there. It was seriously the perfect weekend and I’m SO glad we did it. We stayed at the amazing Parker Palm Springs and spent the majority of our time basking in the sun at the pool, eating great food (a few favorites: Cheeky’s for breakfast, Pizza at Birba, tacos at the Ace) and even got a little shopping in. If anyone is on the fence about doing a ‘baby moon’ – just do it!
I was really looking forward to taking maternity photos to capture all of the changes that my body was going through. I had wanted to be pregnant for SO long, and during the journey, I was often so frustrated with my body for not behaving how I felt it was supposed to. Since I became pregnant, I have not taken any second for granted and have never been more in awe of what my body is capable of. It really is incredible to think that I have these two little people growing inside of me. Two little people! I also have to say that I’ve never felt more beautiful than I’ve felt during this pregnancy. There is just something so magical about the whole process.
The incredibly talented Ashley Kelemen met us at the Parker to capture this special time and I am absolutely in love with the magic that she created and am going to treasure these pictures forever. Seriously you guys – she is so good. And she is really fun, like I hope we become friends 🙂
Well enough yapping already, here are a few of our favorites – still can’t believe we are t-minus 5 weeks from meeting these little ones!
