Maternity Photos

 Even though we are all very ready (& excited!) to move on to our next chapter as a family of four, I can't help but be so incredibly thankful for the journey that this second pregnancy has been.  I loved being pregnant the first time & this time it has been just as special to share it with Waverly, who has grown up so much in the past few months as she prepares to become a big sister.  I will forever cherish these family photos, & can't wait to share them with both our girls (& hopefully other little ones!) one day, I hope our children will always know how much we adore them and how much each one of them were wanted.


My mom came with us to the shoot so she could take Waverly early and we could get some pictures of just my husband & I, something we never really do anymore for obvious reasons. ;)  As much as I adore the pictures with Waverly, these are so special to me too, at the end of the day all of this craziness started with just the two of us.  I just couldn't love him more & can't wait to watch him become a dad to two girls in the next few weeks. 


Of course, the biggest thank you to Brooke of Brooke Tucker Photography for once again, filling our walls with so many gorgeous images, it was so hard to narrow it down to these favorites for this post.  Brooke is amazing (she seriously got in the water with her jeans on, in the cold, to make these pictures come to life), we can't say enough about her & look forward to many more pictures with her in the years to come. :)
