The crazy amount of snow in Virginia Beach recently shut just about everything down, including schools, & I had an unexpected seven days off at home with Waverly Maye over the past two weeks! 🙂 Even though by day four we were feeling cabin fever to the max (& I am already dreading making the days up), I can’t help but think what a blessing all of this extra time together was. My husband still worked through out, so it was just us girls for days upon days, something that doesn’t happen near enough. Waverly really is my sidekick, my little best friend, & even though she drives me crazy, I am crazy in love with her. I am so thankful for these pictures to document these sweet moments before our family grows, with the girl who made me a mama & the littlest one still in my belly.
Our sweet, sweet
photographer turned friend Brooke
called us after our second snowstorm to ask if we wanted to meet her for a random photo session, & of course, we took her up on the offer! However, anyone who knows me knows how much of a planner I am, Type-A to a fault, so getting Waverly & I ready (plus picking out our outfits) in just one hour was a little overwhelming. I mean, I usually would have been shopping & pinning images for months before something like that. 😉
Yet that is one of the many things I love about these pictures, that they forced me to be spontaneous & live in the moment, which is fitting, since Waverly has taught me a lot about just that over the last two years.
The biggest thank you to Brooke of Brooke Tucker Photography
, who is beyond talented & SUCH a joy to work with! I had such a hard time picking just a few favorites for this post, our biggest problem will be finding enough space on our walls for all the ones we love so very much. Brooke, we are so appreciative of all the images you continue to capture of our growing family, & are so excited for our maternity photos (with our main man this time) this spring!
PS – My hat, jacket & maternity jeans are all from H&M, in-store. Waverly’s dress & leggings are from a boutique, past season, her hat, socks & shoes are from Zara. The snow is all compliments of Virginia Beach, we loved it while it lasted but now are ready for SPRING!
