when our friends shayla & nick told me they were planning to come down to california in mid january i was so excited. i love shaylas photography style & had wanted her to take my maternity photos but didn't think it would happen since she lives in utah, but they came down at the perfect time. we had so much fun shooting with the two of them, they made it seem really easy & natural which is key in a photographer & nick did a great job of making cedar laugh for the photos & then watching him while shayla got some shots of just austin & i. they are a great photography duo. make sure to check out more of shaylas photos at & schedule a time with her, you will not be disappointed!

i was around 36 weeks when these photos were taken & it was the perfect time because almost since this day, i have felt gigantic, which is not how you want to feel when you're having you're photo taken! it feels like i am getting bigger by the hour & i think my belly shows it! so luckily for me i was able to have my maternity photos taken before this problem! this maternity shoot was totally different than the one i took with cedar. with cedar i was earlier in my pregnancy so i didn't have much of a bump to work with, i took them in march & he wasn't born till june, so i had just barley entered my 3rd trimester. this time around i could have technically had the baby & it would be considered full term, so i was quite a bit further & bigger. you can look at my other maternity photos here :)
