A Photo Shoot

Since pretty much the day I got pregnant I've known I wanted to have maternity photos done. Arsen wasn't near as pumped about it, but he's pretty good at humoring me so he said okay. I didn't really know where to begin looking for photographers, so I reached out to the amazing lady who did our engagement, wedding and my bridal photos to see if she had a recommendation. Luckily for us, she said she's been doing maternity photos for her former brides. I was SO excited since I knew it would be more fun and comfortable with someone we knew.

I originally set the photos for the end of March since I would be around 34 weeks and I read somewhere that was a good time in pregnancy to have them done....what I didn't realize is how huge that would make me. Who says that's a good time to do them, seriously? Who wants to be that huge in their photos? Anyhow, when I got to mid February and was gaining pretty rapidly I messaged Laura and said can we pretty please move them up?? So she found a free day the first week of March and we booked that.

And then Arsen got his new position at work and we found out he would be traveling that day. Sigh. So we had to scramble and find the only weekday that he would be in town and she would be available. I'm blessed with a very sweet husband who realized this was starting to stress me out, so he took over coordinating everything and found a day that worked for all of us.

So one Friday morning almost two weeks ago we met up in a little park area in the middle of Richardson, Texas, and got some really gorgeous photos. Laura is a fabulous photographer, and if anyone is in the DFW area and in need of wedding, engagement, bridals, etc., be sure to check out the website for Fairy Tale Photography.
