Ever since I had my little girls, I always wanted to take pictures with them in an all-dolled up photoshoot – just us girls. I figured a maternity photoshoot would be the perfect opportunity…before our little BOY comes! I wanted something really feminine…really pretty. I had visions of us in beautiful dresses in a field somewhere. I had our photographer all booked, and we were getting excited. One week before our pictures, the photographer had to reschedule…ok no biggie.
Finally, it was picture day! We spent all afternoon getting pretty – and it took ALL afternoon…trust me. We painted nails, had a snack, curled hair, had a meltdown, put on makeup, had another snack, painted nails again because they touched something…you could imagine the hormonal zoo that afternoon.
I loaded everyone in my car and the photographer called me…to reschedule. She said it was raining in the field where we were headed. I was bummed. I was exhausted. There was no way I was rescheduling again after we had done all of our beauty work LOL. I was just going to cancel altogether. Luckily, Nana came to the rescue and said, “Come on over, and I’ll take some pictures of ya’ll!” So we headed to Mr. “Weasel” & Mrs. Delane’s beautiful yard down my mom & dad’s street. They have so many picture opportunities in that yard!
Kennedy & Jules were actually very cooperative. By now, they should be well trained in front of the camera ;)
Nana did an awesome job! We took a bunch then I headed home to edit them all – my favorite part :)
We didn’t get my field I was hoping for, but I LOVE the way these pictures turned out! Thank you SO much Nana, Mr. Weasel, & Mrs. Delane for saving us from a photoshoot meltdown!
A lot of people asked me where their dresses came from…
I had been eyeing those dresses on Zulily for weeks now. They come in a variety of colors, and I thought this blue/green would be perfect. I love all the pleats in the dress, and I was lucky enough to find a dress for myself with the same pleats!
