I’m SO excited to share today’s post with you–round 1 of my maternity pictures! If you read this post, then you know Baby #2 wasn’t a sure bet. Now, we’re just a few short weeks out from meeting our baby girl.  I can’t wait to hold her in my arms, but until then, I’m trying to enjoy every last moment of my pregnancy. BY THE WAY, YOU CAN ENTER TO WIN YOUR OWN PORTRAIT SESSION WITH JENFOLIO PORTRAIT ART AT THE END OF THIS POST!

My friend Jenny, of Jenfolio Portrait Art, is such a wonderful photographer! She has great vision, and I love how dreamy these portraits turned out. She listened to my ideas, and melded them with her own. She was also wonderful and patient with Kane. I really appreciated her taking her time to get the shots we wanted, instead of rushing us through the session. Pictures can be so’s stressful, but she made me feel at ease and beautiful. If you live in the central Kentucky area and are looking for a portrait or wedding photographer, check out Jenfolii Portrait Art!


Jenny found this beautiful location called Fairyhouse Hall for us to shoot my maternity photos at.  Fairyhouse Hall is an upscale private event venue that just opened last year. The house and surrounding grounds are beautiful, and it can be booked for a variety of events. There are 7 bedrooms that can be rented out for a complete experience. Heather and her CheFarmer husband are so welcoming!


Y’all, I always do my own hair and makeup, so it was nice to be pampered by Katie Noel. Katie is a Redken Specialist at Bak 4 More hair studio. I loved how my hair and makeup turned out! While you can always book an appointment with Katie at the studio, Katie can also be booked to come on location for hair and makeup.


How beautiful are the bouquet and flower crown by Gretchen at Sunkissed Blooms?!  They perfectly fit the feel and look we were going for with this shoot. I especially loved the unique shape of the bouquet.

We had such a fun time shooting these maternity photos!  I will cherish these portraits forever, as I still look back on my maternity session when I was pregnant with Kane.  I know that sometimes women don’t want to do maternity sessions because they feel huge or think it’s a waste of money, but you never get back this time in your life.  That’s why I also recommend that expecting moms snap a bump pic each week.


I’m so excited to be co-hosting this giveaway! Jenny is offering one lucky follower one portrait session in Lexington, KY that includes unlimited print rights to 15 prints!!! (If you live outside of Lexington, you must be willing to travel to Lexington at your own expense if you are the winner). GOOD LUCK!
