DRESS: Sew Trendy Accessories
Finally getting around to posting our beautiful maternity pictures we got back a few weeks ago from our babymoon in Maui. I still get tears in my eyes every time I look at them and think of all we went through to get here. There were so many times we thought this was not going to ever happen for us but we never lost hope. I really feel like this 3 year struggle brought my husband I closer together than we already were. You are never given more than you can handle. For anyone else that may be struggling as well never give up and keep fighting! Being pregnant has been the best experience of my life and I am eternally grateful for this blessing!
We went to Maui for our babymoon last month and decided to have our maternity pictures done while we were there to always remember that last vacation just the two of us. I would have rather waited until I was a little further along but know I would have regretted not getting them if I had waited. I’m so thankful we had them done. I researched quite a few photographers in Maui and decided to go with Kristy Copperfield (http://www.kristycopperfield.com). I felt like her style captured the look I wanted and her prices were very reasonable. Some of the other photographers I looked at were very expensive. I just wanted a few keepsake pictures for us to have forever. Our pictures were done on Baby Beach in Lahaina. It was the most perfect location. Very quiet and mostly just locals.
My dress is from Sew Trendy Accessories. I cannot say enough good things about this dress and company. I had been following them on Instagram for a while and loved all the different styles and colors they offered. I knew this is the company I wanted to go with for my maternity dress. All dresses are very custom to how you want them. Once you decide on the style you want you can really customize with the slit in the front to show your belly, you can do a slit on the side or no slit at all. I went with the Cameron gown since it was sheer and flowy and off the shoulder. I really wanted to go with the blush color since we’re having a baby girl but I thought the ivory would be more timeless and easier to match my hubby to. I went with no slit option in my dress since I wasn’t comfortable showing my complete stomach, but I did get the slip option so my dress would still be flowy for the beach but not see through. It turned out just perfect and exactly what I had pictured in my head. I wanted to do a flower crown for my head but decided to just go with some tropical flowers that were all around our resort.
Thank you so much to everyone that has followed along on our pregnancy journey. We’re in the home stretch now I can hardly believe baby girl will be with us very soon! I will be posting a 35 week bumpdate next week so stay tuned.
