Impromptu Maternity Shoot

So yes, it has been over a year since I last posted to this blog. Partly because of a stolen camera right after we moved, then of course the move and working on our new house, and then getting pregnant and feeling like death warmed over for a few months. To quickly catch you up on our lives, we now live in Indianapolis in a darling 100 year-old home that we bought in foreclosure. As far as foreclosed homes go, it was in great shape (although it needed lots of cosmetic love like new floors, new paint everywhere, landscaping, etc). One day I might get around to actually taking photos of it, but trust me, it is darling. Grayden is walking and talking (okay mostly he just signs "cat" or "car" or "more") and is on the move all day. And we are expecting baby number two to join us in about 6-8 weeks. I have failed to post pictures of our amazing vacation in Nice, the projects around the house, and the adventures we are having in Indy, but you are just going to have to deal with it because I don't feel like playing catch up.

This week while Grayden and I were playing in the Indianapolis Art Museum gardens, a photographer doing a photo shoot with a couple asked if she could take a few quick shots and email them to me. She said she is also a mom and always wished she had more photos of her while pregnant. She literally snapped a bunch of photos in less than a minute and was on her way...and I am shocked at how cute they turned out, despite the fact that I am not wearing make-up, jean skirts are comfortable, but not so flattering, and the same goes for my sandals.

But Grayden is stinking adorable, so I just had to share.
