I don’t normally share pictures of my son here and I definitely don’t intend to post weekly maternity pictures but I’m so in love with this picture of us that I had to share. My secret to a good self portrait with a two year old, let him press the remote release. It doesn’t always work but its always worth a shot. We actually have better luck getting pictures of him like this than we do having one of us behind the camera. Since I do my weekly belly shots anyways its not that much more of a challenge to add him in.
I’ve been taking weekly pictures of my growing belly for the past nine weeks. Since I’m just passed the halfway point I thought now would be a good time to share what my belly has been up to. From left to right 17, 19, 20, 22, 23, and 25 weeks. I’ve been so tired from growing another person and chasing after my son that I missed a few weeks. Here are some of the portraits I’ve taken over the past few weeks.
Since I last posted about the pregnancy we found out we’re having a little girl. We are super excited for the coming of spring and our baby girl!

As the end of the year approaches I realize I don’t have much to show for it by way of photographs, which makes me a little sad. This year has been filled with so many surprises, some not so great and others fantastic. Its been one of the more interesting years of my life and its called me to be away from my camera more than I would’ve liked. One of the more beautiful surprises to come from this year is the gift of our second child. As was true with our firstborn, I’ve felt the need to document this little miracle. So despite not having any pictures to share from our recent trip to California I do have my first in my series of weekly photographs of this baby as we grow together.
I’ve yet to decide if I’ll post these here or just on our private family blog. When I shared the ones I took from my first pregnancy they ended up on pinterest which really bothered me so I’ve yet to decide what I’ll do with these. For now here’s me and baby number two at 16 weeks.
